Feminist perspectives in artistic productions and theories of art

Artium Museum is organising the 12th edition of the course entitled Feminist Perspectives in Artistic Productions and Theories of Art. Directed by Xabier Arakistain, art curator, and Lourdes Méndez, senior lecturer in Anthropology of Art at the Basque Public University (UPV/EHU), this annual course brings together speakers from various countries, disciplines and generations to analyse or intervene in the field of art from feminist perspectives.

Aiming to denounce and fight against discrimination, oppression and exploitation of women, these perspectives maintain that the category of sex structures the social, the gaze, language, art, its field and its institutions by combining aesthetic and political dimensions. Feminist perspectives also analyse male and female artists within the social relationship framework of sex, ethnicity and class existing in societies in which they live and, in doing so, reveal the reasons for the unequal recognition achieved by female artists and their works in the field of art.

The course provides an overview to a broad audience of the main contributions of feminist artists and art theorists by focusing on the theoretical and political issues that need to be addressed today in order to continue developing and disseminating art and knowledge that are free from androcentric and ethnocentric biases.
