Female artists challenge power relations by visual performance
Updated: Mar 21
As much as the creative practice and the performance reflect the artist’s subjective experience, they exist as well within a cultural and environmental context. This approach yielded a rethinking of art practices and teaching as drivers of research processes that promote social engagement based on real-life situations and contextualization.
The research of female artists with the integrative model of Art Based Research methodology seeks, by means of an investigative and creative action, to bring about a change in the order of unequal discourse and challenges power relations by visual representation of gender roles in different spheres of life. With this practice the artists wish to form the mutual relationship between the personal story of a woman and the collective story of a society.
