The red color represents oppression, Putin, and the country he leads. Russia is exerting a brutal political and social pressure on LGBT groups. His government has disabled them in many sectors. They have also protected the attacks, even physical ones, exerted by extremist groups, towards these collectives. Putin is the ultimate responsible.

Synopsis: ' Oppressed ' is a video art where it is denounced, in a metaphorical way, the situation of oppression felt by the LGBT group. As if they were the barbed wire of a wall, Adrián Martínez is immobilized by the sexual condition of many people in the world. Oppression is exercised by society that marks heteronormative and patriarchal patterns. When someone or something gets out of those heteronormativas rules, it is directly oppressed by society with great brutality.
With this video, people are encouraged to get out of the rules, to be who they really are and, above all, to fight for it, never give up.

Synopsis: Reflection on Identity and gender from a political perspective of the body. The desired body of Narcissus by the young Aminias reflects on the structures alien to the identity that the others deposit in the desire on our bodies and their uses. Narciso has been the mythical figure of a male body that does not submit to the alien desire or patriarchal gaze on the political body. The non-acceptance of Narcissus to submit to the desire of his ¨ in love ¨ puts him as a Ulysses struggling for his individuality oblivious to the social subjugation he wants, regardless of his thinking, gender or identity. By failing to follow the guidelines Narcissus is punished and vilified, as centuries later it will happen with Sebastian. Man as a political body has been little studied and pondered. From my work on identity and political body in THE SEX OF AN ANARCHIST I continue to investigate the male identity, its desire and its non-acceptance of what is expected of the body and the desire of one.

Synopsis: Effective narrative reflects on the power of the prevailing perspective and what this means in relation to the spectator. The look controls everything. In the art world, as in the other fields, that perspective, that viewpoint, is primarily masculine. Most of the representations of women that we find in museums and galleries are made by men. This changes with the looks of women who review this position as "almighty" and the perspective itself. Following gender theory and feminist studies, it is the responsibility of art history to revise the representation system. We need alternative looks, unheard spaces, to question that imposed look that manipulates us.
