This project is part of an interpretative trajectory through the work of Brazilian writer and visual artist Nuno Ramos (1969), structured in three lines of research. The first line proposes an study of the voice in the artist's literary work. In the second line, this study focus on the inscription of this literary work in the formal system composed by Ramos' literary and visual productions. Finally, a third line will unfold the other two towards an investigation on the most important dialogues held between the work a tissue and leading problems and projects in the landscape of contemporary and modern literature and visual arts in Brazil, profiting from an analysis of aspects of the author's production as an essayist.Without loosing sight of the perspectives of amplifying the work carried out in the first line, mostly in its theoretical dimension, our research internship will focus mainly on the development of the second and third lines. In the range of the second one, we aim to deepen our crossed inquiry into the twofold oeuvreat issue by focusing on the areas of visual arts history and theory, with emphasis in the period that starts in the 1950s and in the problems of the space of the work of art, of the materialization of process in form, of literality, and of the hybridism of mediums and supports. Lastly, in regard to the third line, we will attempt to amplify our bibliography and our approaches concerning a set of problems on form,which takes us to the core of Brazilian artistic, intellectual and social modernity. In this way, we will try to enlarge the historical panorama which, in the second line, arrived at the transformations of the Brazilian artistic context in the 1960s and 1970s and at the presence of its legacy in the contemporary scene,and make and effort to deepen the exploration of historical and cultural aspects that enlighten Ramos'work's localization in this landscape.
