The woman is no longer due to the kitchen and home, the new woman is empowered, fighter and rebel, and this is the view shown in this international selection of videos, in which there are short films, documentaries, performances and experimental videos. In these videos, a critique of the patriarchal system and its institutions is generated, from the subtle gesture of cutting a cucumber to the dramatized destruction of buildings. All videos share the same liberating spirit that mixes humor and criticism, leaving aside the violent and dramatic situations experienced by women. We do not encourage more violence, but encourage a change of thinking from stereotypes established by the media and history in general.

SYNTHCITY is a generative audiovisual installation which constantly creates unrealistic versions of a city by algorithmically blending its real landscapes, objects, sounds and people. In doing so, this work aims to highlight our acculturation to modern means of industrialization, and its often-ignored impact on social and civic systems. In Soundscape theory, lo-fi acoustic environments are those that exhibit an overpopulation of sonic elements. A lo-fi soundscape is often the mark of an industrialized urban environment; the acoustic affordances of such an environment are deemed disproportionate to human physiology, and can be amplified to hazardous levels. SYNTHCITY explores the relationship between hi-fi and lo-fi acoustic environments from a multimodal perspective: as it computationally blends organic and inorganic sound- producing objects, and resonant spaces of a city, it does so in both the auditory and the visual domains. The result is an uncanny mixture of mundane objects that are out of proportion and out of place. By contrasting the thresholds of audiovisual stimulation in various parts of a city, it realigns the viewer’s perspective on what tends to be regarded as natural or comfortable in everyday environments.
