Under her eye: immaginari e pratiche spaziali transfemministe a Palermo

Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review


This article analyses the performance organised by Non Una Di Meno-Palermo for the 2020 International Day for the elimination of Violence against Women and gender-based. During the demonstration, the urban space has been re-signified by a ‘Handmaid’, with regard to the novel and the TV-series The handmaid’s tale (Atwood, 1985). Used many times by the transfemminist movements to represent women’s body control and discipline, the Handmaid representation takes on further meanings in the Covid-19 pandemic framework. This paper examines the performance by analysing on the one hand its spatial aspects, in connection with other forms of movements’ spatialisation; on the other hand, the mobilised (trans)feminist imaginaries, between pop seduction and resignifications. The aim is to understand which are the meanings and the alliances the movement is building through this kind of spatial imaginaries and practices, by identifying the specificities in the Palermo case.
