Aura Rosenberg: On and Beyond Feminism
Aura Rosenberg’s work probes sexuality, gender, motherhood, childhood, artistic identity and historical construction. In this lecture, she will discuss some of her critically acclaimed projects, such as Head Shots (1991-1996) and Dialectical Porn Rocks (1989-1993), in which she performs a humorous reversal of the male gaze in pornography, as well as more recent works that deal with topics as diverse as childhood and the secret life of statues.
10:00 am CET
