BERGÉ, David (ed.)
The Sleeping Hermaphrodite. Waking up from a Lethargic Confinement
What can a reclining marble sculpture, conceived through a myth in Greek antiquity, tell us today about the fluidity of our gender construction? What has been the role of aesthetic and historical canons in the construction of the female and male genders? Is The Sleeping Hermaphrodite really asleep? Or has she/he been induced to a long lethargic state, punished and confined by the history of gender normalization?[publisher's note]
