Polyvalent Inequality and Disparity

In this project, Ina Jessen investigates the politicization of what can be considered the visual representation of gender-specific power structures at the interface with material iconographies in artistic positions. With reference to the normative distinction of gender attributions, for example, the project is primarily concerned with the disclosure of power structures and hierarchies, persistent socio-political inequality and lack of equality in various parts of civil society. Reflection on conventions is also relevant here, as it reveals social norms and gender-specific characteristics. The project is initiated in cooperation with contemporary artists. Ina Jessen includes the topic in the framework of the following international conferences:

Gender, Diversity and the Performing Arts · Artistic and scientific symposium · University for Music and Theatre Hamburg · Spring 2021

Let’s Talk ‘Dirty’! · Symposium · Loughborough University · 28 10 2020
