Abstract

The political and aesthetic issues that emerge from feminist activist practice, expressed in the case study that we are going to analyze: images/photographs/memes posted in the Instagram profile of the character/performer Ex-Miss Febem, created by the artist and activist Aleta Valente. In this context, we will reflect Beatriz Preciado’s notions of “gender technologies” and “counter-sexuality” in the construction of a post-feminism.
