At the beginning of the nineteen seventies, a significant number of feminist art historians began to revise the canon used to construct the social, aesthetic and artistic value of the works produced by women artists. This revision, while enabling the recovery of artists and works, opened very diverse paths of reflection that have been developing thanks to the increase in research on the situation of women artists and their works in the artistic field. Nevertheless, just as feminist art history, this research still has been awarded scarce academic legitimacy.
The objective of this course is to propose a panoramic view of the main contributions of feminist art history, delving into the theoretical and political problems feminist researchers must face in order to continue developing knowledge freed of sexist structures that have guided the construction of social and human sciences.The Social Dimensions of Art: Artist, Works and Contexts
