Baginen. Painters, weavers, ceramists, sculptors, illustrators, dressmakers... There have always been creative women. However, few have been acknowledged in the history of art. Since the emergence of the discipline in the 18th century, this absence has been attributed to female traits and biology, the basis for the arguments being that women lost their creative ability once they had children or that their emotional nature meant they were incapable of achieving excellence of reasoning.

Over recent years, artworks by many women have come to the fore, and it has become clear that what was considered “a problem with women” is in fact “a problem with the history of art”. What was the rationale behind women being excluded from the history of art?

Museums and public collections play an important role in this rationale. They ensure that certain artists are promoted and they drive forward research; likewise, they have the ability to reaffirm or question canonical discourse. After centuries as part of the patriarchal discourse, many museums are reflecting on their current role in this system.

Bagara. This exhibition ties in with the reflection taking place. We have gathered works by women from the collections of the San Telmo Museum and Gipuzkoa Provincial Council to not only exhibit them but to encourage reflection around the reasons why many of them are unknown. Some say that women were not part of the history of art when in fact we are. They say we were not in museums, but we are.
