ABSTRACT
This article presents a qualitative research into the development of visual perception in Critical Studies, the role �visual concepts� play in this process, and the knowledge and skills necessary to engage with artworks. The data comprised interviews with eight lectures and professors of art and design education from four universities in London. The results suggest that interviewees did not attribute great importance to developing visual perception and that a formalist approach is not as common in Critical Studies as in activities involving art production. Este artigo apresenta uma pesquisa qualitativa sobre o desenvolvimento da percep��o visual nos Estudos Cr�ticos, o papel dos �conceitos visuais� nesse processo e os conhecimentos e habilidades necess�rios para estabelecer uma rela��o significativa com trabalhos de arte. Os dados compreendem entrevistas com oito professores de ensino de arte e de design de quatro universidades de Londres. Os resultados sugerem que os entrevistados n�o atribuem grande import�ncia ao desenvolvimento da percep��o visual e que uma abordagem formalista � mais comum em atividades de produ��o de arte do que nos Estudos Cr�ticos.
