In the winter of 1888 Vincent travelled to France, […]

Beksinski (1929-2005)

“I wish to paint in such a manner as if I were photographing dreams” – Zdzislaw Beksinski Beksinski was a Polish painter, photographer and sculptor. He studied architecture in Kraków and had no formal training as an artist. He specializes in the field of magic realism and dystopian surrealism. He painted in a baroque and a gothic manner with his trademark precision. The first period of his work incorporates expressionistic colors with a strong style of utopian realism and a surreal architecture. The second period presents more abstract style. An exhibition in Warsaw in 1964 was his first major success – all the paintings were sold. Soon he became a leading figure in the contemporary Polish art. From the late […]

Corte no valor das bolsas de estudo

Valor dos apoios será equivalente ao recebido pelos alunos de licenciatura a partir do próximo ano lectivo. Os estudantes do ensino superior com deficiência que frequentam mestrado ou doutoramento vão ter cortes nas bolsas de estudo no próximo ano lectivo e passam a receber o mesmo valor das licenciaturas, denunciou hoje a Federação Académica do Porto. “Até ao ano passado [2018], independentemente do ciclo de estudos que frequentassem, os estudantes com incapacidade igual ou até 60% recebiam uma bolsa de estudo pelo menos equivalente ao valor da sua propina, independentemente do ciclo de estudos que estivessem a frequentar, ou seja, licenciatura, mestrado ou doutoramento”, mas com a nova lei vão receber o apenas 872 euros, o valor da propina máxima […]

Agustín Ibarrola Goikoetxea

Agustín Ibarrola Goikoetxea is a basque painter and sculptor. He began his relationship with painting in a self-taught way (at age 16 he made his first exhibition) and in 1948 the Council of Biscay granted him a scholarship, so he could move to Madrid to continue his studies in the workshop of Daniel Vázquez Díaz, until 1955. With him he made his first steps into Cubism. In 1950 he met another artist who had great influence on his production and his artistic mentality, the Basque sculptor Jorge Oteiza; with him he was introduced to the division and analysis of the space characteristic from constructivism. He also learned from Oteiza the mentality of joint artistic creation, where numerous artists and different […]

Friedensreich Hundertwasser

If you have already visited Vienna, I’m sure you have seen some colorful buildings in weird shapes.   All these art works were done by one of my favourite Austrian painters: Friedensreich Hundertwasser Regentag Dunkelbunt. His name tells us already a lot about him, it’s maybe even more exotic than his style of art. He was born as Friedrich Stowasser but changed it in 1949 and added some words. “Hundertwasser” is because of a Slavic word, “Regentag” means rainy day and “Dunkelbunt” a colorful dark. Hundertwasser was born on the 15 of December 1928 in Vienna and he spent the first period of his life there. During 1943, about 69 of his Jewish relations – on the side of his […]

A nossa galáxia não é plana

Todas as noites, um grupo de cientistas polacos monitoriza a luminosidade de milhares de milhões de estrelas da Via Láctea. Há umas especiais: chamam-se cefeidas, são as mais brilhantes e ajudam no cálculo de distâncias — ao estudar mais de 2400 delas, os cientistas perceberam que a nossa galáxia não é tão plana como se pensava. Afinal, a nossa galáxia não tem a forma de um disco plano, mas sim de um disco com as pontas “distorcidas” numa espécie de “S” deitado. É esta a conclusão de um estudo feito por um conjunto de cientistas polacos publicado nesta sexta-feira na revista científica Science e que corresponde ao mapa 3D da Via Láctea com mais detalhe e precisão feito até hoje.

Francis Bacon

Francis Bacon in my opinion is one of the greatest painters ever to put brush to canvas. His work would completely shock, scare and amaze those who would gaze upon it. His work would be etched upon the British consciousness after the Second World War. Coming out of the horrific and devastating war, Bacon’s paintings would reflect not only his consciousness but he would tap into the dark and unnerving subconscious of the people. He was an Englishman who was brought up in Ireland during in his formative years. His childhood was a very tough and harrowing one,  he suffered from severe asthma and that meant he was a recluse and very shy. Additionally, growing up with a strict protestant […]

Dos CTESP às licenciaturas

Quase dois terços dos alunos que entram nas formações de dois anos prosseguem estudos, mas estas tinham sido pensadas como “via rápida” de acesso ao mercado de trabalho. Os cursos técnicos superiores profissionais (Ctesp) estão a tornar-se numa via de acesso alternativa às licenciaturas. Estas formações de dois anos foram criadas para serem uma “via rápida” para colocar pessoas com formação superior no mercado de trabalho, mas quase dois terços dos diplomados está a continuar os seus estudos. Os dados recolhidos junto das instituições de ensino superior mostram que 65% das pessoas que concluíram um Ctesp em 2016/17 inscreveu-se numa licenciatura no ano seguinte. A realidade é diferente de instituição para instituição. Por exemplo, todos os diplomados da Escola Superior […]

European elections and the future

This year my country celebrates 15 years of being a member of European Union. There were a lot of changes in Poland during that time – in my opinion mostly good ones. And thanks to it I could become an EVS volunteer in Madeira. Being a part of the European Union brought many advantages for young people who can now study or volunteer abroad. My parents didn’t have this opportunity and they are happy that I could go abroad thanks to the Erasmus+ program. In my opinion it’s very important for young people to get to know other cultures, learn languages, meet people from different countries, get experience in new areas. When they learn and get another point of view […]

Liechtenstein and the EU

As you may or may not know Liechtenstein isn‘t actually in the European Union. Together with Norway and Iceland we belong to the European Economic Area. Liechtenstein joined the EEA in 1995, after becoming a full member of the EFTA (European free trade association) in 1991. Joining the EEA, also obliged Liechtenstein to apply some European Union laws because they are considered EEA relevant. There is some further cooperation with the EU via Switzerland as Liechtenstein is highly integrated with the Swiss economy (including using the Swiss francs). There are further agreements between Liechtenstein and the EU, on matters such as the Schengen agreement, taxation for savings and there are ongoing talks on combating fraud and exchanging information on tax matters. […]

The future of the European Union

The elections to the European Parliament are approaching and, once again, millions of Europeans are called to vote. These elections are especially important, as crucial decisions will be taken in the coming years that will affect climate change, the resettlement of refugees and asylum seekers and the sovereignty of the peoples of Europe. However, we can say that elections to the European Parliament do not usually attract much interest in the population, at least in Spain, because the power of the European Commission is perceived as something limited and distant that does not have much impact on the member States. Even so, I believe that we are living a decisive period in terms of the continuity of the Union, since […]

Christmas, Easter and Carnival

Every family has their own Christmas traditions Christmas In my family, Christmas always begins with the decorating of the Christmas tree. Later, we usually cook some sweet food. So, we made some chocolate truffles for us and the family, and we also made “fruits déguisés” some dry fruits filled with almond paste. For the Christmas dinner with my family, we eat smoked salmon and foie gras which is cooked duck liver. We also eat turkey filled with chestnuts. And for dessert, we eat la buche, a cake in the shape of a wood log with a glass of champagne. We open the presents usually after dinner on the 24th of December. Every family has their own Christmas traditions but regarding […]

Traditions in my country

My favorite tradition of all in the U.K is the Notting Hill Carnival. Traditions in the UK vary depending on which part of the country you are from. Traditional religious festivities such as Christmas and Easter have less religious connotations attached to them due to an ever-increasing secular society. Corporate interest and late-stage capitalism have also averted the traditions of these celebrations, towards culture and industry of shopping and consuming. The traditions that occur in my family household, are quite simple nowadays. If you are from a religious family, then you might attend midnight mass on the 24th of December, however, we just drink some prosecco and watch a Christmas film or an episode of Only Fools and Horses, a British […]

Christmas and Easter in Poland

12 dishes on Christmas Eve and buckets of water on Easter Monday, those are just an example of how we celebrate this special time in Poland. Christmas Christmas in Poland is celebrated for 3 days starting from Christmas Eve. Dinner starts with the first star in the sky, which refers to the Star of Bethlehem which the three kings saw on the way to the Infant Jesus. When the whole family is ready, we start by sharing wafer and make wishes, then we can start eating. Traditional dinner on this day consists of 12 meatless dishes and trying each of them should guarantee happiness during the next twelve months. Typical dishes, for example, are beetroot soup with small dumplings stuffed […]
