#066 Embodying gender

Curated by Teodora Cascarade,
who created this programme as part of her internship at Impakt.

Films challenge the stereotypes associated with the narratives in which women live. They show how the preconceived notions about gender are embedded in every aspect of our lives.

Thus, embodying gender is an everyday performance of a socially appropriated narrative. This programme aims to offer an overview of perspectives on how artists approach and discuss these ideas within their work.
