Feminist Art Interventions and Cultural Memory about the Femicide Epidemic in the Americas

The aim of this text is to discuss feminist art practices about femicide in the American continent. We will analyze works by Brazilian artist Panmela Castro, the Zapatos Rojos intervention by Mexican artist Elina Chauvet, and the REDress Project created by Jamie Black in Canada. The analysis has its starting point in the reflections of Hirsch and Smith (2002) on feminism, cultural memory and postmemory in dialogue with the concept of femigenocide coined by Rita Segato, also dialoguing with Laurie Clark and Diana Taylor’s reflections on memory and sensitization, demonstrating how the art production discussed here is aligned with broader community initiatives of memory production about feminicide and gender violence.
