Rosário Salema de Carvalho | Az – Rede de Investigação em Azulejo [ARTIS-IHA/FLUL]

The link between Portuguese tile decorations and the notion of identity(ies) is rooted today in a very wide context, leading to the extensive use of azulejos as cultural and narrative symbols, with very different aims. The purpose of the present article is go back in time, to the mid 19th century, and to debate the role played by European historiography in the emergence of the azulejo as an “identitarian” art form, considering its unique characteristics and the main moments and agents that have contributed to the creation and consolidation of this phenomenon.

HOMELAND SQUARES: JOAQUIM DE VASCONCELOS (1849-1936) IDENTITY PANELS
Sandra Leandro | UE | Instituto de História da Arte – FCSH, Universidade NOVA de Lisboa

«We will have an exhibition of ancient tiles that will dazzle» – these were the convincing words of Joaquim de Vasconcelos about the ceramic exhibition that he organized in 1882 at the Crystal Palace in Oporto. Joaquim de Vasconcelos (Oporto, 1849-Oporto, 1936) was an exceptional Polemist-Art Historian and Museologist. Graduated in Germany, he became one of the most outstanding representatives of the German-speaking culture of his time. He had the courage to start all kinds of artistic studies, presenting interpretations against myths, legends and dogmas, which made him a myth and a romantic hero, founder on a scientific basis of the Art History in Portugal. His position, e.g., against Manuelino (style associated with the reign of D. Manuel in the 16th century) was not popular, as he collided with the strong power of a myth that fueled the growing nationalism of the “Ultra-lusos.” (Ultra-Lusitanians). And it was not only on this issue that he faced what he considered «wrongly patriotic views». In the Museu Industrial e Comercial do Porto (Industrial and Commercial Museum of Oporto) that inaugurated in 1886 and had so much importance in his life and work, Vasconcelos considered the erudite industry of the tile. How? This is what we will try to see in this intervention.

TILES AND IDENTITY BY PATTERN CLASSIFICATION
Maria de Fátima Vale de Gato Santos Rodrigues | Departamento de Matemática – FCT NOVA and CMA
Pedro Jorge Santos Freitas | Departamento de História e Filosofia das Ciências – FCUL and CIUHCT

Walled tiles can be figurative or patterned. Whereas the figurative tiles can better be described by theme or author, tile patterns are traditionally classified using more abstract rules that describe either the motif or the pattern itself. In this paper, we present a traditional mathematical classification of plane patterns, the Washburn and Crowe Algorithm, and use it to identify or distinguish tile patterns. We present a complete mathematical classification of the tile patterns present in all places of public access in the Almada region and show how this classification can help recover damaged tiled walls and floors, in order to preserve our heritage. We extend this mathematical analysis to 20th century patterns and quasipatterns, hoping to show that this classification can add to our knowledge of the identity of these patterns.

PUBLICITY TILE PANELS IN PORTUGAL: A SINGULARITY WITHIN IDENTITY
Cristina Carvalho | Casa–Museu Medeiros e Almeida

In mid-19th century when tiles turn to the outside of the buildings, covering façades, a singularity in tile production came to light: their use as advertising or publicity support.  In an absolute novelty from the 3rd quarter of the 19th century on, very simple signs made of tiles start to inform about products, shops, workshops, services. Since then, until mid-20th century, this sort of production never stopped, being able to update itself to new artistic styles following, graphic arts and publicity concepts evolution. Work of unknown artists as well of consecrated painters / designers evolved from the simple lettering to the most exuberant colourful figurative representations. Despite its decline from mid-20th century on, this sort of panels never completely disappeared and continued to be produced until the present day, proving to be a singularity within tile production, being part of the Portuguese artistic identity.

THE AZULEJO AS COLONIAL SYMBOL OF POWER:  A DECONSTRUCTION THROUGH SUGAR AND ART
Shelley Miller | Independent artist

I create murals that look like azulejos, depicting caravels and many decorative features seen in traditional azulejos, but my murals are made entirely of sugar. I make the sugar tiles and hand paint them with edible inks. I am interested in the azulejo, specifically with imagery of ships, as a symbol of colonial power and of national pride (the Nation of Portugal), but only for the means to subvert this pride.  I developed this work in Brazil, addressing the country’s history of colonization and the slave trade that supported Portugal’s sugar empire. I continue to use the blue tile reference, even outside the context of Brazil, because I want to reference the general construct of colonization and slavery, showing how oppression has found new forms. I install my ephemeral murals on city walls, where they wash away, fade, crumble and decay, animating a more realistic version of history.

CONTEMPORARY AZULEJO: AN IDENTITY ISSUE?
Inês Leitão | Az – Rede de Investigação em Azulejo [ARTIS-IHA/FLUL]

The idea of azulejo (tile) as a defining art of Portuguese cultural identity has been the object, in recent years, of an increasing academic and public discussion, also related to its valorization, linked to a taste rooted in Portugal, often sustained by the uninterrupted application of tile over five centuries. In fact, tile continues to integrate the contemporary artistic production, being part of the imagination of some artists, architects and designers, even if promptly. Is this option related to the identity aspect assigned to the azulejo? In order to open the debate on this issue, this paper intends to evaluate if the motivations that lead artists, architects and designers to use the azulejo, presently, are related to this idea of an identity art.
