The Body as Manifestation of Memory

Diego Salcedo Fidalgo
Abstract—The body understood as patrimony puts to test notions dealing with memory, representation and the body itself. All of them are concepts that articulate this research in order to think the place from where we look –art history and the museum as viewing mechanisms–. Also, we will examine how body expressions are understood and appropriated from an individual, collective and symbolic perspective. What concepts and understandings emerge from the relations between the body (contemporary dance approach), art history (paintings), the museum (as a viewing mechanism) and the notion of patrimony? And, in which sense they make us reflect on contemporary art practices that are concerned with body matters, space, experience and society?

Index Terms—Art piece, body, dance, memory, museum.
