Coinciding with the exhibition Women Masters, the museum is organising a film cycle which connects the exhibition’s subject to the audiovisual medium. From its beginnings in the 19th century to its technical and aesthetic development in the following century, film has played a key role in the construction of the collective consciousness and imagination.

This series, directed by Ana Quiroga Álvarez, pays tribute to the women who were part of the art-historical account but who nonetheless remained on its margins. Among the subjects of the programme’s six films (biopics, documentaries and dramas) are artists featured in the exhibition, including Artemisia Gentileschi, Rosa Bonheur, Paula Modersohn-Becker, Berthe Morisot and Frida Kahlo.
