WOMEN ARTISTS IN NINETEENTH-CENTURY SPAIN? MUSES, “COPIANTAS”(COPIERS) AND CREATORS
By María Dolores Cebrián Sotomayor, graduate in Art History
Artists, painters, protagonists, amateurs, muses… What was the place of women in art? With this and other questions, María Dolores Cebrián portrays that woman of the nineteen who, after the airs of freedom of the Enlightenment, returns to the historical and political changes – to her traditional position: wife, ideal mother and angel of the home or muse and passive subject if art is spoken. . In this illustrative walk, we will follow the hard journey that goes from its almost only admitted role of copiers and the attempts of recognition to the vital support and defense of art – patrons, collectors, patrons – made by the women of Spanish high society.
CONFERENCE. GREEN CITIES: ECOSYSTEM SERVICES AND GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE
COMMITMENT TO NATURE AND THE SUSTAINABLE CITY
Currently, management policies for green areas in cities require a paradigm shift: we must value the benefits that nature provides us and, consequently, establish policies for the creation of a sustainable urban and peri-urban forest. Nature helps us mitigate climate change and is our ally: through proper evaluation and management of the natural flow of our city and with multidisciplinary teams we can improve our living conditions. The landscaper Rosa Ceño will talk about all this.
Talking about this topic as Dr. María Soledad Durini will do, is a passionate invitation to reflect on language, its relationship with thought and its impoverishment; to deliberate around the word, manipulation and political correctness; or to discuss the need to create inclusive ways of expression.
TREND AND DIVERSITY OF CONTEMPORARY MEXICAN ART
Where does Mexican art go? The plastic artist Roberto Gutiérrez Currás will dive into this and other questions, with the idea of revealing the very diverse trends of the cultural panorama of Mexico, through artists – men and women – who, from diametrically opposed perspectives, design a dynamic artistic world. Undoubtedly, an attractive and revealing conference.
Very promising preview of the seminar we will teach in the fall …
On September 29th , the Doctor in Art History Julia García González will lecture us on a very special subject “Sculpture in feminine”. In it she will address us about the presence of women in sculpture as an object, as a subject and as a patron. Thus we will be able to delve into prehistoric works such as the “Venus of Willendorf”, and we will take a tour during antiquity attending fully representative works such as “La Dama de Elche” and ” La Dama de Baza” and she will present us poorly recognized sculptors such as Camile Claudet and others fully consolidated such as Louise Bourgeois. All this will run in parallel with the work carried out by great patrons such as Isabel la Católica or Mª Isabel de Braganza.
ART AND EVANGELIZATION IN THE GUARANÍ AND CHIQUITANAS JESUIT MISSIONS
We will follow in the footsteps of the Society of Jesus in Latin America through its missions and the arts …
After the conquest of America, the Society of Jesus developed an intense, complex and diverse evangelizing work, in which it highlighted the foundation of the so-called “missions” or “reductions” of the Guaraní and Chiquitana area (within the current territorial limits of Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia and Paraguay). The system of hispanization and spiritual conversion developed there stood out for its particular tolerance towards indigenous customs and for the remarkable social balance achieved. We will discover how the various arts, from architecture to music, were an essential part of the process and one of the biggest keys to its success.
After the History of Gardens seminar given by Professor José Miguel Morales, AMUM proposes to delve into this matter by taking a trip to the myth and origin of all gardens: El Edén. Known by the Persians as the cultivated and closed Garden, many mythologies have referred to it to name that locus amoenus, that idyllic and idealized place, represented by a fertile valley, from which a mighty river flows and which is located in the East , where the sun is born.
With the conference, El Edén: Jardín cultivated and closed. In the key of a woman, the theologian Begoña Cigarán will analyze the representation of paradise from the current theological interpretation to shed light on this subject that fascinates many, but which, unfortunately, continues to be interpreted in the wrong way today.
EXPERIENCES IN THE BEIJING PROCESS 95
Within the framework of our twinning program “Spanish-speaking cultural bridge”, we will learn about the progress and challenges of the different countries on the road traveled 26 years after Beijing 95 and we will discuss the current situation.
This activity – proposed and organized by the Federation of University Women of Paraguay – aims to share the experiences of the countries in the process of conquering and developing one of the most important milestones in terms of gender equality at a global level: the Declaration and the Beijing Platform for Action, held in 1995 and unanimously adopted by 189 countries.
LECTURE BY DR. MARÍA TERESA MEDEIROS-LICHEM WEDNESDAY,
LATIN AMERICAN WRITERS
WOMAN’S WORD: THE WAY TO YOUR OWN VOICE
Teresa de la Parra y su Ifigenia, written in 1924, is the starting point chosen by María Teresa Medeiros-Lichem to set a date on the arduous journey of women to articulate their own voice, investigate their experiences and express themselves in a world dominated by the man. And she will do it with an exciting conference organized by AMUM, in which we will get to know the world of such valuable writers as Elena Poniatowska and Luisa Valenzuela; We will discover Paula Bombara or Karla Suárez, her aesthetics and post-memory texts; and we will face the challenge of reading Samanta Schweblin and Carla Guelfenbein. With them, with their wealth and with their language, women’s literature lives a well-deserved moment of boom and recognition.
