Érica Saraiva  Masters of Arts

By placing her experience as an object of analysis in her works, Luiza Prado makes it possible to question the notion of fixed identity that dominates cultural systems and approaches a radical critique of hegemonic discourses, capitalism, sexism and, mainly, rape culture, from within and self consciously. Such perception of the ways in which domination operates through cultural discourses, makes it possible to expose the power structures legitimized by them, at the same time that they reveal the actuality of experimentation in different supports and languages undertaken by the transdisciplinary artist. In line with a generation of new Brazilian artists looking for ways to problematize the relationships that establish them as Other or as specular representation - and consequently, the construction and fixity of such categories - Luiza questions the representations, their role in the construction of subjectivity and the ways in which they reveal structures, social knowledge and domination devices.


Maricela Velez - (About To Curate Yourself Performance)
Cultural Director of Centre Colombo Americano, Bogotá - CO

La curaduría (en el arte) es un ejercicio de investigación que tiene como objetivo comunicar algo a alguien mediante la selección de objetos o apoyos materiales, lo que implica decidir qué se muestra y qué no. Tradicionalmente, la figura del curador se ha asumido como un personaje que se especializa en un tema y de manera aislada y vertical realiza su proceso, sin embargo, el arte contemporáneo le ha trasladado la palabra y la autoría a las personas, al públicos en general, para que sean éstos quienes realicen sus propios procesos de curaduría mediante la visibilización y exposición de sus historias. Para este ejercicio, he diseñado un acto performático en donde el objetivo es propiciar espacios de participación en donde las mujeres puedan realizar catarsis de sus memorias de violencia sexual, por ello, hago pública la invitación para que las mujeres que hayan sido víctimas de la violencia doméstica y sexual, participen con sus propias historias y en un acto artístico–simbólico puedan experimentar un ejercicio de liberación y desapego de aquellos sucesos que de manera desafortunada se han convertido en nuestros fantasmas
