It is a commonplace to claim that the twentieth century was the century of women in terms of their path to empowerment. But as far as women in Portugal are concerned, the centuryonly began in the 1960s before consolidation in 1974. Fifty years on, how visible are women and to what extent are their voices still silenced? What happened to feminism? And what does art have to do with it?
This lecture takes place in the context of the exhibition Post-Pop- Beyond the commonplace.
