16 Dec SCREENING LATIDOAMÉRICA EXTENDIDA: EUROPA //
To cross the ocean to migrate.
The history of the world is the history of migration. The history of the names that have been given to those human groups on the move: settlers, migrants, refugees, colonizers, expatriates, diaspora.
We crossed the ocean to live among the “conquerors.” In our program we have decided to talk about how and why we got here, and above all how we managed to stay, how and why we wanted to and were able to leave.
The fluidity of borders and territories has come to moist our identity. We inhabit hybrid and fluid spaces of enunciation. Identity and nationality are equivalent and opposite at all times.
The “Latin American identity” from within “Europe” is lived between expanded networks, found families and embodied otherness.
Within the framework of the first edition of the CONTINUO LATIDOAMERICANO DE PERFORMANCE 2020, the committee of Latidoamérica Extendida: Europa has invited Latin American artists living in Europe to propose video and photo performances that relate to their different experiences as migrants.
The CONTINUO LATIDOAMERICANO de Performance 2020, is constituted as a plural collective construction, of synchronous autonomies, in the sense of continuity with the legacy of multiple memories. As part of this first edition of the CONTINUO, committees from 19 countries / regions and more than 100 artists come together to present work and discuss glocal issues.
LATIDOAMÉRICA EXTENDIDA : EUROPA is curated by Marina Barsy Janer, Diana Soria Hernández and Guadalupe Aldrete
