What constitutes a community?

Art and Community – discussing the meanings and producing new meanings

Manoel Oliveira, in Aniki Bóbó, and Paula Rego, in Time – Past and Present, tell us about bonds and ways of belonging to a community, in which every person has to find a compromise between their world and everyone’s world. This need for adaptation, without giving up one’s singularity, is also the theme of Tragic History with Happy Ending by Regina Pessoa. In Domain Field, Antony Gormley points to the crowd as a compound of singularities.
