Pantalles CCCB. The Woman Machine

Chapter 4

Screenplay and production: Ingrid Guardiola, Sofia Esteve
Duration:
 12'

Based on the exhibition +Human, the programme reflects on the construction of the robot woman, the automaton, from a gender perspective, and is divided into three parts: Creation (soul), Work (submission) and Body (commodity). The figure of the inert, automated woman is part of our culture’s history, from Pygmalion, to the avant-garde fascination with mannequins, to the robot women of science fiction and contemporary sex machines.

Pantalles CCCB is a program of cultural essay and reflection that goes out monthly on Barcelona Televisió and is then available on our website.
