Ota Bengi, the Bearded Woman, the leopard boy, the Smallest Woman in the world, the Legless Wonder, the Muse black albino brothers… These are all people, not characters, who have contributed to the construction of a racist, ableist and heteronormative imagination, because they have all been exposed and portrayed in a cruel and appalling way. Unfortunately, this approach has continued to produce stereotyped and dehumanising representations of various peoples, communities and minorities to this day.
Émilie Hallard and Lizette Nin, from a transfeminist and anti-racist perspective, provide tools for developing images along new ethical and creative lines. These tools will help participants to translate their social and artistic values and interests into images, to develop new, carefully crafted discourses, narratives and representations, and to further deconstruct their unconscious biases.
Participants will be invited to share their photographic work and reflect together on how to produce more ethical portraits.
Workshop lasting 4.5 hours
12 participants, open to all levels.
Coming soon in Barcelona
