Performing Localities - Recent Guatemalan Performance Art on Video

Since the mid-nineties, when Guatemala emerged from several decades of devastating civil war, artists have been investigating their country's traumatic past and current realities through recorded performances and actions.

Performing localities is a two day event composed of a series of screenings and talks around contemporary Guatemalan performance art on video. Performing Localities explores localised conditions within Guatemala and the artist’s body. Artists investigate the complex and contradictory relationships between indigenous traditions, patriarchal systems and corporate globalisation.

Artists include María Adela Díaz, Regina José Galindo, Jessica Lagunas, speakers include Rosina Cazali, Professor Oriana Baddeley, Dr. Julian Stallabrass, Joanne Bernstein.
