Through the study of models and images of women, this conference organized as part of the seminar Militant Visual Cultures seeks to show how was built a history of avant-garde groups. While these groups were almost exclusively composed of men, their purpose was to reclaim and promote universal, and undoubtedly legitimate, struggles and revolts. The use of women as models to produce images is therefore not intended as a means of producing muses for the pleasure of the eye, but rather as a weapon directed against the system.



The seminar Militant Visual Cultures is organized in collaboration with the Magasin des Horizons in the framework of the project Ré.Part – Partisan Resistance(s): Visual culture, collective imagination and revolutionary memory (ANR-15-IDEX-02), the Laboratoire de Recherche Historique Rhône-Alpes (LARHRA), the master in History of Art of the Université Grenoble Alpes and the international platform MoDe(s)2 – Modernidad(es) Descentralizada(s): arte, política y contracultura en el eje transatlántico durante la Guerra Fría.
