The New Politics of the Body and Sexuality that will take place at the Latvian Museum of Photography. The paper is focused on the feminist transformation of the gaze. The concept of the male gaze was introduced in the 1970s by film theoretician Laura Mulvey, who connected it with a patriarchal power position and the logics of voyeurism.
