Scope and policy
The ARS magazine proposes a broad focus on the approach of visual arts, observing the requirements of multidisciplinarity posed by cotemporary art production itself. At the same time, it values in the theoretical area the contribution of the older disciplines, like philosophy, esthetics and art history, especially considering the little academic tradition of Brazilian art schools and the need to improve theoretical positions with solid intellectual references in the tradition of knowledge, even if it often involves confronting or pointing out the limits of this tradition in view of the challenges of the contemporary situation.
It has the interest of disseminating, together with the works of artists, critics, historians and art theoreticians, researchers and Art Postgraduate students, the collaborations of artists, intellectuals and professionals from other areas, whose intervention can be considered relevant to the cultural debate, or also collaboration of experts who work outside the university environment. If offers to the authors the prerogatives of a noncommercial magazine, favorable to experimentation and specialized theoretical research, and a favorable place for institutionalization of a public space for the demanding discussion of cultural problems.
The magazine publishes new critical and reflective texts, historical texts, book digests and expositions, graphic essays and artistic interventions specific for the magazine.
