Witches

Description

An artistic, cultural, historical and social evocation of the figure of the Witch through the ages, including the realities and representations of the Witch from the late Middle Ages to today’s feminist movements.

In the light of the new feminist movements that have taken the witch as the emblem of their revolt, we explore what this figure covers: feared and persecuted in ancient times, she gradually became the subject of myths and fairy tales before haunting pop culture and ultimately symbolizing current feminine claims. An underexplored subject, yet one that is essential to our understanding of the image and status of women in our societies from the late Middle Ages to the present day. The figure of the witch populates our collective imagination as much as it does our childhood memories and cultural references.
