Join us for the second event of this reflection cycle which focuses on Latin America’s art practices that have taken form of resistance
against past and present social, economic, and political oppression. In this occasion Ionit Behar will be in conversation with Dignicraft, a Mexican collective that has worked along Purépecha families in the development of La Piñata Colaborativa [The Collaborative Piñata] a interdisciplinar body of work that tackles issues of indigenous displacement, labour, craftsmanship, and human dignity. La Piñata Colaborativa is one of the projects exhibited in Talking to Action, visit the exhibition before the event is suggested.
In South and Central America, artists have often been predecessors of what later in North America or Europe has been marketed as new and innovative forms of art and thought, hardly receiving credit for their highly relevant previous works. In recognition of this history, this discussion series opens space for artists and researchers to discuss their practices in their own terms, and creates an opportunity for the SAIC community to learn from their example.
Coordination: Eva Marxen, faculty in SAIC Department of Art Therapy.
The conversation will be hold via skype with the artists.
