Pêdra Costa Artist Talk: Decolonization is a Verb Inscribed in Bodies, Tongues, and Orifices as Portals
February 26, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm UTC-5
February 26th, 7:30pm
Join us for an evening with artist and scholar Pêdra Costa discussing their work in conversation with Nine Yamamoto-Masson (current Flux Factory Artist-in-Residence).
Pêdra Costa is a ground-breaking, formative Brazilian urban anthropologist and performer based in Berlin who utilizes intimacy to connect with collectivity. They work with their body to create fragmented epistemologies of queer communities within ongoing colonial legacies. Their work aims to decode violence and transform failure whilst tapping into the powers of resilient knowledge from a plethora of subversive ancestralities that have been integral to anti-colonial and necropolitical survival.
In this special artist conversation at Flux Factory, Pêdra will present their work in conversation with Nine Yamamoto-Masson and will discuss the role of art in the project of decolonising the body, society, and also art institutions, illustrated by examples of struggles in Brazil, Germany, and “the USA.”
