Description:

In this presentation Balcarce will analyze the Feminist movement in Argentina from a biopolitical approach, using the collective Ni Una Menos as an example of what Foucault calls resistance as a practice of subversion that dislocates towards new forms of subjectivation that highlight the creative character of power. To accomplish this, Balcarce will take into consideration Judith Revel’s interpretation of Biopolitics and resistance.
