THE FEMALE NUDE: A DIDACTIC ALTERNATIVE FOR THE HISTORY OF ART

V.M. Pérez Guerrero

Universidad de Sevilla (SPAIN)
As a part of the initial training of teachers, we are shaping with students of teaching social science elementary 3rd grade, a curricular proposal based on the educational possibilities of the term “gender” as a model for analyzing education curricular materials.
With this iniciative we propose to address the problem of androcentrism, sexism…in art coming from its complexity without essential statements.

Our challenge is to bring future teachers to study the characteristics which are fixed in textbooks regarding the representation of women and their relation with the female stereotypes.

The aim is not only to analyse images of women as a reflection of historical reality but also to find the active role that these images have in building social models, taking into account that they can determine our beliefs and behaviours.

In this sense, there would be three key parameters to be considered. First of all, note that the representation of women at a formal and iconographic level is due to what each culture selects as historical, artistically and aesthetically significant.

At the same time, the image represented becomes structured which means that it determines a way of seeing and thinking about “genders”.

Finally, It should be emphasized that the students are also conditioned by their own history and culture. Indeed, assuming that the spectators are located in a position from which they can contemplate and activate the meaning of the image, among the students, it should be fostered a critical look with “gender” hierarchies that are present in a patriarchal society and coming from there, be able to educate people aware about the fact that they may and they have to make personal development choices to lead their lives and to contribute to the development of a truly democratic society.

To illustrate de exhibition we will focus on the analysis of some of the most representative female nudes regarding the artistic production of Julio Romero de Torres.
