Of old, snakes have embodied conflicting hybridities that represent both wisdom and deceit, danger and healing, redemption and destruction.
Join Wiebke Leister and Catherine McCormack for two short 30-minute tours as they reflect on how snake iconographies are used to trigger our symbolic good-evil associations. Their conversations will reveal how the image of transgressive serpents becomes a chance to revisit themes of patriarchal repression and feminist resistance from history, bringing them together with today’s lived experiences.
