Study day on the work of Romeo Castellucci, with Joao Francisco Figueira

Saturday, June 24, 14:30-18:30

The Orpheus research cluster MusicExperiment21 increasingly developed a component of ‘staging compositions’, and the work of Romeo Castellucci has functioned as an important reference to the team. This study day with an expert on his work, will present and discuss Castellucci’s aesthetics and techniques. Joao Francisco Figueira is an architect (studies in Oporto and Venice, PhD in Helsinki), professor of architecture at Lisbon University, and a researcher on the value and power of “images”. He is the series editor of YMAGO, having edited and published books by Georges Didi-Huberman, Jacques Ranciere, Daniel Arrasse, Horst Bredekamp, Hans Belting, Viktor Stoichita, and Aby Warburg, a.o.. He follows the work of Romeo Castellucci since two decades and has given presentations on his work throughout Europe.
