Pilar Aymerich and Fina Miralles in the exhibition ‘Precursoras: feminismos, cámara en mano y archivo al hombro’

Entitled ‘Precursoras: feminisms, camera in hand and archive on shoulder’, the exhibition curated by Nicole Fernández Ferrer and Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez, incorporates some Catalan artists including Pilar Aymerich and Fina Miralles.

Presented in Paris from September to December 2023 at the Cité internationale des arts, and now adapted by the Filmoteca de Catalunya, the exhibition will be on view in Barcelona from July 11 to November 17.

With this, the Filmoteca de Catalunya, proposes in an exhibition the cultural and visual history of feminism in France in the 1970s and 1980s through the work and influence of three filmmakers, Delphine Seyrig, Carole Roussopoulos and Ioana Wieder, creators of the collective Les Insoumuses. The videos of Les Insoumuses, along with the other filmmakers and related collectives, offer a cartography of the struggles of the time: from abortion rights and sexual freedom to the Vietnam War or anti-psychiatry, in a resolutely international framework, and propose a dialogue between generations of feminist video-makers and artists that goes beyond the French scene.
