“ESCRITO POR MUJERES” (“WRITTEN BY WOMEN”), A SAMPLE THAT REFLECTS WOMEN’S LITERARY WORK DURING THE 20TH CENTURY
“Escrito por mujeres. El mundo literario femenino en español del siglo XX” (“Written by Women: the Feminine Literary World of the 20th Century in Spanish”) is an exhibition that reflects women’s important literary work during the past century. This sample shows some of the traces left behind by these creators in their different Spanish speaking countries. It is through these trails that their fruitful task, their interrelations, their relation with the editorial world, with illustrators and with the world of writers may be appreciated.
This sample is coordinated by the Writer’s Museum-Modern Art Centre (Museo del Escritor-Centro de Arte Moderno) in Madrid andreflects the importance of women’s literary work during the 20th century. It is composed in homage to these women’s battle, who paid with family exclusions, marital problems, exiles, different types of injustices and in many other ways, their decision to be themselves and reflect their feelings and thoughts in written words.
“Escrito por mujeres. El mundo literario femenino en español del siglo XX” has an interdisciplinary nature. It is made up by the different author’s first book editions, but also by other elements that give us more, detailed and rich information about them, such as photographs, dedications, letters, personal belongings, documents, recordings of their own words, posters, films, etc.
Located in the hall of the Faculty of Philosophy and Literature of the University of Extremadura, the exhibition is open to the public from October 24 to November 15.
