Guerrilla Girls on performace/speech

Esta semana, Leire Ventas Aldabeldetreku hablaba de las Guerrilla Girls y su exposición en la Alhóndiga de Bilbao. Recordaba a las activistas de Femen en el parlamento español y reformulaba la célebre pregunta de las artistas y activistas norteamericanas en clave actual: ¿tienen que desnudarse las mujeres para que la reivindicación de sus derechos y la denuncia de la discriminación tenga repercusión?

Hoy nos fijamos en otro aspecto de las Guerrilla Girls. Ahora que la cuestión de la narratividad y la performance están tan en boga, y que los artistas hacen conferencias, traemos un vídeo de una de las lecturas-conferencias-performaces de las que también son pioneras las Guerrilla Girls.

A*DESK is a critical platform focused on publishing, training, experimentation, communication and dissemination in relation to contemporary culture and art, which is defined by transversality. The starting point is contemporary art, because that is where we come from and this awareness allows us to go much further, to incorporate other disciplines and forms of thought in order debate issues that are relevant and urgent for understanding our present.
