POLITIKA TELA V SÚČASNOM VIDEOUMENÍ NA SLOVENSKU
Politics of the body in contemporary video art in Slovakia
Languages of publication
The issue of identity, body and corporeality, and the reflection of gender issues have been among the relevant subjects of contemporary video art in Slovakia since the 1990s. In this context it is necessary to emphasize that it was female artists (e.g. Jana Zelibska or Pavlina Fichta Cierna) who promptly responded to a number of new socio-cultural phenomena. In addition to the examination of identity, they also dealt with a critical reflection of depiction of women by the mass media and mass culture including the undermining of patriarchal stereotypes and conventional ideas of women and their social roles.
