Simone de Beauvoir's phrase, reframed by the various contemporary feminisms, points to the fact that being a woman is a social construction. Many of the artists at Biennial 12 present plural perspectives on ways of being women in different times and societies.


Observe the images of the following works: Mujer de ver, by Peruvian artist Natalia Iguiñiz; #dominicanwomengooglesearch, by Dominican artist Joiri Minaya; and Mirar, by the mapuche artist Sebastián Calfuqueo.
