🌹 Visit queer of the Louvre🌹

(Full event)

What reading of bodies, genres and sexualities can be seen in a large institutional museum such as the Louvre Museum?
From Greek statues to mythical figures in Italian painting, to the warlike and feminist figure of the Amazon or the witch, this visit will challenge our "traditional" perception of art history.
Adelin * / Léo Leménager, doctoral student in art history and specialist of Amazons, will guide us through these figures, real and / or mythological, to shed light on the place of these queer and feminist characters, inclined to revolutionize our world and our imagination.

Speaker 📖

Adelin * / Leo is doing a doctoral thesis at the University of Rennes 2 under the direction of Mrs. Elvan Zabunyan since 2015. Her work entitled: "Amazons in the prism of gender studies". Persistances and transformations of an ancient myth into contemporary thought and representations lie at the intersection of gender studies and queer theories. This thesis is based on a study of ancient art, and more specifically of Attic pottery, made in master. He now specializes in the history of lesbianism and teaches art history from a queer / feminist perspective.
