BARBOSA JUNIOR, Francisco Welligton de Sousa; TEIXEIRA BAPTISTA, Maria Manuel Rocha  and  MONTEAGUDO SANCHEZ, María Jesús. Notes about aesthetic leisure experience. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.2, pp. 1-12. ISSN 2359-0769.

The present theoretical-exploratory text aims to clarify contributions that the concept object of study, the aesthetic leisure experience, can provide in terms of personal and social development. Orientated from this end, we carry out a bibliographical review from writings on the aesthetic leisure experience in databases and book collections, such as Scielo and the collection of Documentos de Estudios de Ocio. The descriptor that guided these searches was "ocio estético", in the Portuguese, Spanish and English languages: ocio estético, ócio estético and aesthetic leisure. Using this thread, we divided our path into two moments, respectively titled: "Between Experience of Leisure and Aesthetic Experience" and "Marking Features of the Aesthetic Leisure Experience." In the first part we present some milestones on the esthetic experience and its relations with the leisure experience; and then we present characteristics that are intimately peculiar to the aesthetic leisure experience. This led us to conclude that the perception of beauty is a central element of the aesthetic leisure experience, since it is based on a view in which the subject and elements of his culture dialogue; a dialogue that allows the person an encounter with himself, new views about his context and reconstructions of identity, and contribute to micro-resistance processes in the face of dominant discourses in a culture.

Keywords : beauty; experience; leisure experience; aesthetic leisure experience.
