FARIA, Paula Maria Ferreira de; DIAS, Maria Sara de Lima  e  CAMARGO, Denise de. Art and catharsis for Vigotski in Psychology of Art. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.71, n.3, pp. 152-165. ISSN 1809-5267.

This theoretical article intends to reflect on the conception of art presented by the Russian psychologist Lev Semionovich Vigotski in the work Psychology of Art. The study highlights the importance of art as mediation for human emotional expression and reprocessing, through the aesthetic reaction expressed by catharsis in artistic appreciation. From the contributions of Vygotsky, the creative and transformative potential of man on the work of art is emphasized, favoring human resignification in its cultural and historical context. In this sense, the role of art and artistic experience as essential instruments to modern society is emphasized for the reconnection with the sensitive and subjective aspects that integrate the human psyche.

Palavras-chave : Art; Catharsis; Vygotsky.
