The #metoo movement has shaken the way one looks at the world artistic medium. As an example, see Hannah Gadsby's Nanette, where the comedian puts her finger on the wound: how Art History hides the person and elevates the genius.

Thinking about art like this implies museological and urban choices that, combined with gender, colonial and intersectional issues, lead to an impasse and an exercise in reflection. The instituted narratives of art based on hegemonic and normative ideas are put into debate, which pre-conceived the roles that each one should have in the construction of culture.

In this training, we will try to understand the bases behind the hegemonic narratives, deconstructing the idea of art, questioning its problems and, based on this questioning, we will, with the help of the participants, dismantle the prejudices inherent to the idea of Art and the narratives that are created.

Coletivo FACA

Coletivo FACA was formed in 2019 and is an active citizenship project. Having Andreia C. Coutinho and Maribel Mendes Sobreira as its core, this is a curatorial and active citizenship project that questions the narratives of visual culture. The Collective reflects on the themes of feminism, colonialism, racism, LGBTQI + and non-normativity, in general in museum spaces. All of these issues have the same root, a prejudice in relation to what is not the same as us, making us feel threatened, branching out on issues considered marginal. It is urgent to retell history because the predominant narrative does not coincide with individual and collective narratives, which have always been disregarded. Bearing in mind that these ideas are being developed internationally, Coletivo FACA brings discussions to the Portuguese cultural debate with a specialized and non-specialized audience. Not erasing history, it crosses different narratives, pulling the margins to the center of the debate.
