Title in Portuguese
Estratégias desconstrutivas: a crítica feminista da representação
Keywords in Portuguese
apropriação
arte feminista
identidade
representação de mulheres
Abstract in Portuguese
A pesquisa propõe uma revisitação da crítica feminista das políticas de representação considerando a intersecção de seus principais debates e premissas com as críticas contemporâneas às políticas de identidade, sugerindo perspectivas pós-identitárias nas estratégias representativas empregadas por Barbara Kruger, Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons e Martha Rosler. Problematizando a tendência da representação de perpetuar na imagética feminista um sujeito fixo e uma categoria estável "mulher", atenta-se para a importância da formulação de estratégias artísticas representativas antiessencialistas que evoquem criticamente "mulheridade" evitando a reificação da categoria, do sujeito e das estruturas heteronormativas que sustentam o termo. Assim sendo, as análises propostas na pesquisa sugerem que, ao apropriarem-se de imagens de mulheres advindas do repertório dos mass media (revistas, cinema, televisão, anúncios publicitários etc.), as artistas selecionadas proporcionam um olhar crítico à imagética cultural e desestabilizam não somente as retóricas nela historicamente arriagadas, mas também a própria noção de "mulheridade" como categoria identitária estável, coerente, natural e universal.

Abstract in English
This research provides an analysis based on the intersections between the feminist representational politics critique and the contemporary identity politics critique, suggesting that the strategies employed by Barbara Kruger, Cindy Sherman, Laurie Simmons and Martha Rosler manifest post-identity perspectives. By exposing the representation's tendency to perpetuate, in feminist imagery, "woman" as a fixed subject and stable category, this research stresses the necessity to elaborate antiessentialist representational artistic strategies that might be able to critically summon "womanliness", though avoiding the reification of the same category, subject and heterosexual structures that sustain this term. Therefore, I will argue that by appropriating images of women provided by the cultural imagery (magazines, cinema, television, adds etc.) these artists enable a critical gaze towards this particular visual repertory, destabilizing not only their historically rooted rhetorics, but also the very idea of "womanliness" as a stable, coherent, natural and universal identity category.
