Body and gender: transversal projects from contemporary art

Es Baluard's second seminar of teachers training

“Body and gender: transversal projects from contemporary art” is the third training proposal for teachers launched by the museum together with the CEP of Palma Jaume Cañellas Mut. The aim of this programme is to consolidate the line of training for teachers Es Baluard’s carried out in the last two years. The goal is to create a community of teachers who will base their their long-term work in contemporary art.

This edition’s theme is gender, linking it with performance as an artistic language. Gender is a relevant and transversal theme. It’s specially necessary when we refer to adolescents. The course will connect the audience to the artistic language of performance, since the body itself is the main way of expression, and will open up other expressive possibilities within the contemporary artistic practices which often aren’t explored in the teaching activity.

This is a theoretical and practical seminar. A series of training sessions for teachers will be connected with work in the classroom. The purpose is to build concrete activities to be carried out later with the students.

This seminar will be conducted by the Es Baluard’s Area of Educational Development, Training and Public Programmes and will be attended by teachers from ESADIB (Dramatic Art School of the Balearics) and Meritxell Esquirol, cultural analyst, doctor in Human Sciences and Culture, Social and Institutional Communication with the thesis “Femininity, neoliberalism and popular culture: the depoliticization of feminism”.
