Women as a symbol of revolution are a recurrent motive across cultures and centuries. Is the Occupy poster depicting a ballerina standing on top of the Wall Street Bull with gas-masked crowds behind her a contemporary response to Delacroix‘s Liberty Leading the People? What are the dominant themes and archetypal figures that resurface in various cultural and historical contexts? The project approaches these and other questions through an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural investigation.
