Join us for a special lecture with the performance art collective Colectivo LASTESIS.
In this virtual workshop, Colectivo LASTESIS (Chile) will share their working methods with participants. The objective will be to put feminist theory into practice, generating a translation of written text into spoken words, while using other artistic materialities. The result will end with performance, dialogue, sound, text, and graphics.
This virtual event will be spoken in Spanish, with English interpretation. All are welcome.
Register for this virtual workshop here.
This program is presented as part of the exhibition The People United, curated by Tamara Toledo.
