CFP for the journal Asparkía. Investigació feminista: FEMINIST DECONSTRUCTION AND REAPPROPRIATION OF SPACE IN ART
The reflection on the meaning and construction of space as the place where our actions develop and the meanings of discourse are formed (comprising the socio-political order but also memory, identity and gender) has always been one of the central points of feminist exploration.
This monographic issue aims to put together research pieces dealing with the reflection, deconstruction, resignification and reappropriation of space as manifested in the artistic works by a series of women creators. The deconstruction and exploration of the meaning of space by these women creators becomes the focus of new meanings that, in turn, lead to the reappropriation and transformation of those spaces. Through the employment of a variety of artistic languages, as a form of creation of new discourses and as new realities, the works created also work as a mechanism to destabilize hegemonic narratives.
In this context, this monograph pays special attention to the articulation of memory, the political, identity and gender in the space of art and visual culture from the epistemological and methodological framework pertaining to feminism. This articulation is a key form of expression from the perspective of the revalorization of women’s production and of those discourses that have not been included in the historical canon of patriarchal societies. The focus is on identifying the construction of counter-hegemonic spaces by a series of women creators, which allow for the configuration of new political and social scenarios in the artistic space. These artistic spaces indicate the necessary representation and recognition of those discourses as constructions that act as the starting point or the moment of destabilization and subversion of socio-political and identity spaces.
