—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?
—Art piece, body, dance, memory, museum.
