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.

Future developments


The projects that made possible the creation of the PO.EX Digital Archive ended in February 2012. And thus, funding from FCT and EU, which has allowed us to contract services, human resources (scholarships, consultants), and dissemination (missions) has ended as well. While new forms of funding does not arise, maintenance and ongoing management of this Archive is guaranteed by Rui Torres, with the unconditional support, friendship and patience of the authors represented here. (Thank you!)


Po-ex.net is a member of CELL-Consortium on Electronic Literature, of the ELO-Electronic Literature Organization. The Consortium on Electronic Literature is an initiative aimed at developing partnerships among organizations, universities, and publishers for the purpose of sharing research in the area of electronic literature. CELL stems from a desire to establish cooperative communication among databases devoted to electronic literature worldwide. In a word, the goal of CELL is interoperability.

And what now, José? > Now we are motivated to continue. So we are interested in finding new partnerships and fundings in order to ensure a sustainable development of this Digital Archive…

Words and Painting Exchange Roles: Concretism, Experimentalism and Fine Arts in Portugal

Article by Eduardo Paz Barroso establishing correspondences between some Portuguese artists and the universe of visual poetry, thus discussing aspects of the Portuguese poetry of the 1960s. [Pdf]


In > Journal of Artists’ Books, Number 32, Columbia College Chicago, Center for Book and Paper Arts, pp. 21-28. Fall 2012. ISSN 1085-1461.


From the Introduction > When considering the relations between Concretism, Experimentalism and fine arts in Portugal, we are referred to the universes of Cubist collage, to the mental associations of Surrealism, to Informalism and action painting. All these aesthetic trends provide the means and contexts for new forms of visual thinking that experimental poetry formulates, questioning and self-questioning in accordance with principles that expose the poetic creation simultaneously as creation and theoretical enunciation. Several points of contact and aesthetic affinities between this trend and some of the most significant moments of the Portuguese plastic production are perfectly identifiable. However, it is still insufficiently explored the critical analysis inherent to a pictorial corpus interrogated from the concerns and attitudes of experimental poetry and concrete poetry.

The place of poetry in modern and contemporary Portuguese literature marks a kind of originality without a name. More than a pure purpose of language and its subject, it is an accelerated experimentation. This is due both to the dizzying capacity of the “saying” as to the imagery of the word that breaks through as a “pluri-significant” event full of oniric possibilities. In this context, the term Literature has not so much its institutional and ideological meaning which refers to a “theory of literature”, but is rather an “archipelago of metaphors” (Lourenço, 1988:205), each metaphor with its own filament, its demarcation of episodes where language breaks all the grammars, according to criteria of solitary poetic authorship, which is always the condition of an “I” that resists the critique reunification with the “person” of the author.
