Dress as Feminist uprisings in Latin America: clothing and contemporary artivist political performance

This research explores the re-signification or reinvention of items of clothing as tools in the
context of different feminist revolts in Chile, Bolivia, and Peru from 2000 to present. It analyses
dress as a means of artistic representation, with emphasis on harnessing the thought and
political practices of resistance of peripheral feminisms. An analysis from Latin American
perspectives will show how clothing, power, and feminisms are linked as allies that channel
social changes.
