Half open curtains

I’ll talk about the Belgian writer Herman Brusselmans. Why him? To reply in his own style: because this dickpick is probably the most f*cking interesting choice of them all. That’s right. I didn’t choose him because his oeuvre is close to my heart. Neither his high pitched literary style. Still, he is one of the greatest writers of Belgium. How did this come to be? Well, to start with, he is (unlike many colleagues) in front of the media. He keeps himself in the picture through talk shows and columns, where he likes to mock other celebrities and comments on certain situations. This provocative talk is also very typical for his books. The overall style elements are a Highly autobiographical […]

Gerwin van der Werf

The Writing Teacher Gerwin van der Werf is not a name that many non-Dutch people know nor are able to pronounce properly. Not a lot of Dutch people know him or his work either. He is not a famous writer of literature that creates complex novels with hidden themes and multiple meanings but he is one of the greatest Dutch writers. He has written four novels, Gewapende Man (2010), Wild (2011), Luchtvissers (2013) en Een Onbarmhartig Pad (2018). Apart from being a writer, he is also a music teacher at the high school I went to in the Netherlands.

Beyond reality

Giorgio de Chirico and his metaphysical painting as a breath of fresh air in a grey set. Beyond the empirical sensorial experience there is something else, a thin layer that is not above reality, neither below, behind or inside, but lives “within” it. These two layers influence themselves, and sometimes our limits break, so that we can taste a slice of this alternative world. Giorgio de Chirico, father of Italian metaphysical painting, didn’t try to express anything really new. Since humanity became capable of being aware of itself, it had to face the supernatural, it had to deal with those elements that fly away from our sight, which can sometimes be essential for our being, if not life changing. Is […]

Sonia Delaunay

Her art is remarkable, especially the first period of her work with this kind of cubism, it is even more astonishing if you keep in mind that this was painted before the art of Mondrian.

Educação inclusiva

O novo regime da educação inclusiva é apresentado pelo Governo como um novo “paradigma” na abordagem às dificuldades de aprendizagem dos alunos. O conceito de necessidades educativas especiais deixa de existir. Quais são as diferenças principais entre a lei da educação especial, regulamentada em 2008, e o novo regime da educação inclusiva, instituído em Julho de 2018? A principal diferença diz respeito ao universo de alunos abrangidos. Em vez de se dirigirem apenas a alunos com necessidades educativas especiais, como acontecia anteriormente, as medidas de apoio aplicam-se em teoria a todos os estudantes. É por essa razão que se elencam “medidas universais”, que poderão depois ser reforçadas por um conjunto de medidas “selectivas” e “adicionais destinadas aos alunos com dificuldades profundas e […]
