Faces de Eva. Estudos sobre a Mulher

Print version ISSN 0874-6885


ALVAREZ, Rafael. (All) ready-made bodies-identities-genders. Faces de Eva. Estudos sobre a Mulher [online]. 2019, n.Extra, pp.191-192. ISSN 0874-6885.

Starting from the statement launched by Duchampian logic, different strategies for the construction of gender and body identities are analyzed, calling on the devices of subjectivity and otherness of a group of four artists - Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, Yasumasa Morimura and Madonna, discussing the modus operandi that part of their works and discourses of self-representation / self-referentiality embody. From this perspective, aesthetic, ethical and political projects of subversion, rupture, transformation, resistance and alternative to the hegemonic regimes that enclose the body-gender binomial in a mono-discursive logic are embodied. Against this heterocentric monopoly, these bodies are constructed in the mirror reflecting a collection of other bodies and landscape of themselves.

Keywords : ready-made; body; otherness; identity; gender.
