WILSON, N.C. — March 16, 2022 — Barton College will welcome Federico Guillermo Serrano as the featured speaker for the Hispanic Writers & Artists Series Lecture on Wednesday, March 23, at 6 p.m. in Hardy Alumni Hall. His lecture will focus on “Art as a mode of thought. Reflections around the installation ‘Architectural model for the Danté, by the Colombian artist José Alejandro Restrepo.”

Works of art can reflect on the same topics of Social Sciences or Philosophy; however, they do it in a very different way. This lecture will seek to explore the corporeal aspect of thought that works of art bring to the fore. In contrast to the representation of thought as a process independent of the body, it will be shown that the activity of thinking is always corporeal and sensible. On the other hand, we will describe works of art as beings of sensation; that is, as compositions made with the sensations that the body has experienced in itself and in nature, but also in concepts.

Dr. Federico Guillermo Serrano López (Bogotá, Colombia, 1971) is a professor and researcher at the Department of Humanities and Philosophy at Universidad del Norte, Barranquilla, Colombia.
