Queer and Trans* Performance Art in Latin America—A Talk by siri gurudev

This talk will teach about the "Performance Art" genre, a

contemporary form that lives between life, theater, and visual

art. First, we will address the genealogy of Performance Art in

the Americas from a decolonizing point of view to signal its

anti-indigenous history. Then, we will see some examples of

queer and trans* performances from Colombia, Mexico, Brazil,

Chile, and the United States Latinx diaspora. A transnational

perspective will allow us to comprehend better how these

artists deal with colonial legacies and imperialism through their

art practice.
