Talleres de representacion Feminista
Roosevelt Roads, Ceiba, Puerto Rico
18°12'40.7"N 65°38'30.0"W

The 21st Century has been hailed as the Century of Women.
Yet works of art and contemporary culture show just how much prejudice towards all women and their bodies persist. This campus is dedicated to transforming the mindset of its students through creating art on the current role and image of women and their bodies. There are current societal limitations, especially concerning the body and its basic impulses. We want to bring attention to these issues of feminist representation.  

Workshops of Feminist Representation will focus on creating thoughtful ways to present unique works of art that can spark conversations and cirtiques on today’s visual culture of women, their work, and their bodies.

This campus hopes to not only poke fun at, but also to complicate our ideas of how gender should be represented.

This campus contains various workshops situated inside and outside the buildings, utilizing both interior and exterior installations. These programs explore the bodily nature of feminist artworks, more specifically their performative and material boundaries. This is in hopes to disrupt our ability to empathize with these visual works and images, and to rethink our ideas of what the idealized image of a woman is.

From performances and artwork that bluntly address female objectivity, students can explore different ways of representing their female perspective into society.
