Current project

The unfinished in the Art of the Baroque

The project examines forms of incompleteness between artistic practice and debate on images during the 17th century. Through its heterogeneous manifestations (technical quality, decay of materials, mode of address, excess of spatial and temporal boundaries), the unfinished is examined as a meaningful figure of thought in the culture of the Baroque.
