Book presentation and Talk with feminist historian and writer Helena Sotoca

October 31, 2023 @ 19:15 - 20:15

FREE

Helena Sotoca, better known on social networks as Femme Sapiens, is a communicator of art history with a feminist perspective. Through research work and dissemination of her images, she exposes the gender problems that affect the lives of women and artists. Her first book, “Ni musas ni suminsas” (“Neither Muses Nor Subservients” in EN, Bruguera, 2022), is now in its 6th edition. With it, she shows a deep review of Western art with irony, satire and a feminist point of view, reflecting on issues such as women’s roles, beauty canons or female sexuality in an insubordinate and didactic way.

She collaborates with the newspaper Público, where she brings art to readers by linking it with current affairs in a gender-sensitive manner. In her podcast “La maja sesuda” (“The Brainy Maja” in EN, wordplay of the famous Goya painting “La maja desnuda” or “The Naked Maja”), she interviews referent women while analysing art images. She also collaborates in radio shows in RNE and CatRadio with the section “Mirades divergents” (“Divergent Views” in EN) [1][2]. Check out her work at www.femmesapiens.com and www.instagram.com/femme.sapiens.
