Abstract

[Beyond the ontological perception of art by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari as sensations that could be understood as affects and percepts, this essay considers Nicolas Bourriaud’s suggestion that art should be a state of encounter and tries to read Bailão (“Ball”) (2009), by Marcelo Caetano. Through this film queer ways of life can be felt by night encounters in the streets, at movie theaters and they suggest a time defined by sensations different but connected to the history of activism and updating Brazilian countercultural experience from the 1970s called desbunde. It is a way to integrate formal aspects to an ethics perspective. What is at stake if art can be a way of putting us together also by parties not only by the experiences at work and at family.]
