The (Mis)Representation of Gender in Arts and Media location:Bozar, Brussels date:17 June 2014
The representation of women in media, theatre, film and performance is differently perceived by different generations of men and women. Is this because the older generations of feminists – both men and women – are more concerned about the current representation than the younger generations? Or is there no conflict at all between these generations, except in the media? Is there a global view on the representation of women and on what is denigrating and discriminating? Do we still need activism and on what levels? When is it activism? When does activism become art?
Crosstalks and BOZAR cordially invite you to the opening day of the Summer of Photography. During the day and evening three debates are organized in the Center for Fine Arts on the respresentation of women and their rights and the topics of transgenderism and activism today.
