Taxonomy

The creation of a taxonomy for organizing and classifying a diverse array of materials such those that constitute the digital archive of Portuguese Experimental Literature is a challenging task for the researchers. Our system for organizing a selected corpus combines several typologies of classification, organized in two main areas: Materialities and Transtextualities.

Materialities

The medium of the items, i.e., their material nature.

Performative > Readings and other artistic practices which are performed live with the possibility of audience participation: Audio recordings, Photographs, Video recordings of live Performances, Readings and Plays, as well as their Preparatory texts.

Planographic > Bidimensional works presented on flat surfaces using various techniques of inscription: Calligraphies, Collages, Drawings, Paintings, Printing, Digital Printing, Electrographies, Engravings, Letraset, Letterpress, Serigraphies, Stencils, and Typescripts.

Digital > Works produced by computational processes (generative, permutational, intermedia, etc.), as well as their related documents: Codes, Emulations, Preparatory texts, Printed texts, Recreations, and Rereadings.

Three-dimensional > Permanent or ephemeral three-dimensional works presented or installed in art galleries, buildings, parks, and other private or public spaces: Artists’ Books, Assemblages, Installations (Photographs, Preparatory Texts), Object-poems, Sculptures.

Phonographic > Works that were originally conceived as sound recordings, as well as related documents: Typescripts, Phonograms, Scores, and Preparatory texts.

Videographic > Works that were originally conceived as videopoems or other kinds of videoworks, as well as related documents: Storyboards, Videograms (Preparatory texts, Photographs), Videograms.

Transtextualities

System of “relations” which includes reflexive manifestations of the symbolic systems involved.

Autograph MetatextualitiesTexts about the works and artistic practices produced by the authors themselves: Afterwords, Articles in Magazines and Journals, Articles in Newspapers, Books and Monographs, Chapters in Books, Critical Essays, Documentaries, Interviews, Introductions, Manifestos, Prefaces, Reviews, Theses and Dissertations.

Alograph MetatextualitiesTexts about the works and artistic practices produced by agents other than the authors: Afterwords, Articles in Magazines and Journals, Articles in Newspapers, Books and Monographs, Chapters in Books, Critical Essays, Documentaries, Interviews, Introductions, Prefaces, Reviews, Theses and Dissertations.

ParatextualitiesTextual elements that help to frame works and artistic practices: Catalogues, Covers, and Posters.

HypertextualitiesTexts that are explicitly derived from other texts: Citations – textual fragments from different sources -, Parodies and pastiches, as well as all texts that rewrite or explicitly refer other texts.
