Mark these words - Guilherme Ghisoni

We tend to think of the world as divided into domains. One example of this division is the separation between art and philosophy. We tend to think that art should be done by artists and philosophers should struggle to understanding what the artists have done and try to determine what art is. Neither to the philosopher should be open the possibility of artistic creation nor to the artist the task of explaining and understanding art.

In this perspective, the philosopher's task would, from the formal point of view, be much more limited than that of the artist. The artist could use any means available to him. The philosopher could use only words.

It is against this separation that I rebel in the work Mark these Words. I seek to claim to the artist the right of the use the philosophical language and to the philosopher the right of the use of the artistic means. At least in my biography, these two domains become one and the same.
