Art and gestalt: a dialgica relation To the speech of the relation between Arte and Gestalt, we will make an analogy here what Buber points in its philosophy as a dialgica relation.

ACRI. et. al, 2007, p.69). In Arte and Gestalt this relation will be characterized for the meeting with the object bred. The other will consist from the form that is projected in the art object, therefore being created for it, when expressing by means of the artistic construction its interior world, will be capable to presentificar it, becoming visible what before he was unknown.
