Histories of life and the recovery of personal images bring us to Charles Baudelaire’s reflection on the artist as “a man of the crowd and the world. The association made by the French poet refers to the way of thinking of the “present” time as an essential material for recording and immortalizing a particular time and cultural history. “The world’s man and” are related to the common man and the daily heroisms not found in the pages - and screens - of a mass industry that annihilates singularities. Enrapturated by this conception one can think of everyday history and present history. History of those who are alienated from it.
The project “Photographed History, Shared History” is a blog-album of the daily life of residents of Cotia, centered on history fragments of photographs chosen and narrated by the central characters of the moment captured by them. The blog contains part of texts transcribed and “transcriados” by the Communication and Expression students of the Business Management and Industrial Production Management courses at Fatec Cotia. With this exercise, not only these residents but their interviewers became memory builders. Sherazades provoking the desire to hear, read and see the characters that - once again taking Baudelaire - allow a portrait of Modernity.
Coinciding with this proposal, “Memories that do not fade - despite the Alzheimer”, photographic exhibition that brings together memories of people from the city with the disease.
This communication intends to present these projects, analyzing these memories and the importance of narrating.
