Center for Art History and Artistic Research (CHAIA)

The CHAIA - Center for Art History and Artistic Research is a multidisciplinary R&D unit that carries out research, dissemination, advanced training and cooperation activities in the following fields: artistic, archaeological, architectural and landscape heritage; artistic and project practices; arts, communities and identities. These fields are addressed from a critical and multidisciplinary approach, in which the study of the past is combined with present artistic and project practices, to address heritage as a cultural and social process of representation and re-significance of collective or individual cultural heritages and identities.
