In this context, the link between the imagined, the virtual and the real intersect to generate an interesting dialogue between the collective imagination and the production of reality. A journey of experiences in which the “gaze” is altered by some constructions of power and representations, that are reproduced in a transmedia framework of global interconnectivity.</p> 2022-05-04T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 VISUAL REVIEW. International Visual Culture Review / Revista Internacional de Cultura Visual https://journals.gkacademics.com/revVISUAL/article/view/2864 Opening the Limits of Artistic and Social Expression 2021-10-07T14:09:52+02:00 Lorena Cuenca Ramón locuera@gmail.com <p>The 20th century marked a before and after in the Art. Fundamentally, the emergence of the avant-garde brought new ideals that allow the open work approach. Therefore, from the current context of the 21st century, we ask ourselves: How does the Art express this idea of open work? And how does the Art of today manage to expand towards social and communicative pretensions that involve the viewer in new forms of participation? It is because we show different examples, which tell us how the situation of the author and the viewer in front of the work has developed.</p> 2022-05-04T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 VISUAL REVIEW.

In her career, she stands out for her political treatment, having had problems with censorship, and for being the first imprisoned filmmaker in the country's history. This is why this research aims to analyze the repercussion of Milani's work, from the point of view of its production and reception. In this respect, historical documents serve to contextualize the cinematographic activity of the filmmaker and the analysis of her work.</p> 2022-05-12T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 VISUAL REVIEW.

Nevertheless, their role in interpreter-mediated events has so far been marginalized in the field of interpreting studies. Based on a multimodal corpus of interactions in child psychiatry with migrant patients, this research focuses on the use of iconic gestures, their role in bridging the linguistic gap and in performing cultural mediation. The results of the study suggest that gestures play a part in the construction of shared semantic spaces and act as a marker of interpreting fidelity, hence, becoming corner stones in the trust-building process between the migrant patients and the public service interpreters.</p> 2022-05-12T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2022 VISUAL REVIEW.
