*New podcast:* Griselda Pollock
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/griselda-pollock-main/capsula>talks about
her involvement in the Women’s Movement in England in the seventies, and
about the points of convergence between feminism and art history. Pollock
advocates the need to decentralise and diversify knowledge, and to design
resistance strategies specific to each socio-political context. And, last
but not least, also reflects on memory technologies, trauma, Oedipal and
mother-child relationships, narratives of progress, and Bracha Ettinger’s
matrixial ethics.

*Griselda Pollock *argues that the absence of women in the history of art
is not the result of forgetfulness, negligence, or prejudice. It should be
understood as the result of a systematic effort to perpetuate the
ideological apparatus and the gender hierarchy in our society. As such, she
suggests that instead of thinking in terms of a feminist art history, we
should think about “feminist intervention” in art’s histories: both to
change the present by means of how we re-present the past, and, in the same
gesture, refuse to allow art historians to ignore living artists and thus,
contribute to the struggles of today’s producers.

A key exponent of feminism in the disciplines of art history and cultural
studies, and the author of more than twenty books, Griselda Pollock
explores the complex relationship between gender, representation, and
power, crossing them with feminist criticism (and practices), Marxism,
psychoanalysis, and postcolonial theory.

In this podcast Griselda Pollock talks about her involvement in the Women’s
Movement in England in the seventies, and about the points of convergence
between feminism and art history. She gives a detailed analysis of the
ideas set out in 'Old Mistresses: Women, Art and Ideology', a seminal text
written with Rozsika Parker in 1981, in which they chart a new cultural
imaginary based on works created by women artists throughout history. In
her 1987 'Feminist Interventions in Art’s Histories', Pollock advocates the
need to decentralise and diversify knowledge, and to design resistance
strategies specific to each socio-political context. And, last but not
least, drawing on her most recent essay 'Is Feminism a Bad Memory or a
Virtual Future?', Griselda reflects on memory technologies, trauma, Oedipal
and mother-child relationships, narratives of progress, and Bracha
Ettinger’s matrixial ethics.
