Transdykequeer Micropolitics. Deviant Activism Before and After Aids

Seminar. Outcome of the Art After Feminism

Throughout the two-year duration of each biennial Independent Studies Program (PEI), students participate in a monographic workshop that articulates the continuity of the whole syllabus in a practical manner. The PEI 2008-2010 Workshop is Art after Feminisms, a project that aims to construct a space for research, analysis and reflection on the implications of recent feminist and queer theories in the field of artistic practices. The idea is to create a public space in which to give visibility to some of the languages and representations related to the feminist critique and sexual liberation movements that began to emerge in the sixties in Spain. This project stems from an awareness that the politicisation of art cannot entail the essentialisation of a kind of political «gender» for art: analogously, it is the field of artistic practices that is questioned by the contributions of feminists and queer theory. Thus, this will be an opportunity to reconsider the role of institutional, pedagogic and exhibition-based critique, the place and politics of identity, bodies and forms of subjectivation in art.
