Lecture

Pay what you can

Engagement Arts & KHG present:
Petra Van Brabandt – The Female Nude

The Female Nude

In her lecture The Female Nude, Petra Van Brabandt will talk about the image of women in Western art history and how this legacy still resonates in how we look at bodies today and how this image culture is permanently recuperated. And how, moreover, how this is anything but innocent.

Petra Van Brabandt is moral philosopher and head of research at Sint-Lucas Antwerp and lecturer in semiotics and cultural criticism. She writes about pornography, wet aesthetics and the relationship between art and politics. Her latest book, Art or Pornography, is a philosophical exploration in which she and Hans Maes take a close look at both art and pornography.

This lecture is part of a series of events by Engagement Arts and Kunsthal Gent.

Also in this series:
Thursday 9 December, 19.30 - 22.00 (doors: 19.00)
Engagement Arts & Kunsthal Gent present: An uncomfortable conversation about art. Host: Peter Aers.
