Inspiration: Post-Colonialism: Latin American Women Artists (1960-1980)
July 6, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 7:00 pm€5
Women have been ignored for so many years in fields like science, engineering, technology and even art, but it doesn’t mean they didn’t exist. If we talk about Latin America during the decades of the 60s, 70s, and 80s we can think the indifference is even bigger, but surprisingly, during these years so many feminism movements emerged there.
The eight hours symposium Post-Colonialism: Latin American Women Artists (1960 – 1980) is going to take place at Haus der Kunst, where some artists and curators will discuss feminism at that time in the wrongly denominated “Third World” countries. Apart from feminism and art, they will discuss the political meaning of the term “Third World” and its negatives connotations.
The region of Central and South America is well-known for its mixture of cultures and races, and in this symposium, they will discuss the idea of “decolonizing” these countries, and also talk about different social movements that took place during these years with artists like Barbara Carrasco, Lara Demori, Esther Gabara, Andrea Giunta, Sophie Halart, Giulia Lamoni and Cecilia Vicuña (video contribution).
