“Beauty and Consolation”

 

The human condition is defined by its limitations and dissatisfactions.  Faced with the bewilderment of the world, humans search for the meaning of existence in pursuit of peace and harmony.  We live in an incessant search, trying to find solace for our pain and suffering. We are obsessed with happiness and pleasure but struggle to find consolation.

We nurture singularity and freedom but at the same time we value the sense of belonging and security.  Individuality and society are both complementary and antagonistic: within the family, the community and institutions.  On the other hand, our collective memory shapes us within this cycle of constant transformation, thus conditioning both our understanding and our vision of the future.

The vertiginous acceleration and mechanization of the world in this era of haste and apathy causes confusion and disorientation.  The agitation of contemporary life leads to fragmentation and indifference. We must find an antidote for the hyperactive disquiet which consumes us and distances us from nature and from ourselves.  Could it be that our reconciliation with the world can be done through the contemplation of the aesthetic. Could Beauty be our salvation?

Encontros da Imagem, proposes a reflection on “Beauty and Consolation”. The 2018 edition will take place from the 21st of September to the 28th of October, 2018.
