60,000 Years of Art and Neuroaesthetics – Emanuel Pimenta 2017 in 2017,

architect and composer Emanuel Dimas de Melo Pimenta gave a lecture at the magnificent flamboyant Gothic monastery of Batalha (14th century), in Portugal. It was a reflection on more than 60,000 years of art under the field of neuroaesthetics. After years studying Charles Sanders Peirce’s. Theory of Thought, Emanuel Pimenta has researched on this field since the 1980s. Created by Pimenta, this short film was an announcement piece of the lecture. Several artists referred in the lecture are not present in the short film, for obvious reasons.
