A non-academic lecture. As part of "Lola Arias: My Documents"

MY DOCUMENTS is a programme of lecture performances, where artists from different backgrounds present personal research, a radical experience, a story that secretly obsessed them. For MY DOCUMENTS, Lola Arias invited several artists, from dance, documentary film, installation and performance and theatre to delve into their personal archives. 

In this new digital version, the artists will be virtually there, in their new domestic stage, showing their archive on a shared screen with the audience.The audience can see the performance live, make comments and exchange visions and insights afterwards. In times of Corona, let’s infect ourselves with ideas, stories and knowledge. Let’s share our screens for debate, love and social encounters!

In BLUE HOUSE, Zhang Mengqi shares her diary of the time locked in quarantine in Hubei province, as well as her art experiments in her father’s village. Over the past decade, she is part of the Memory Project, creating an archive of interviews to the older generation about their memories of the famine and she built up a community space called Blue House where she does performances with kids inspired by this and other stories of the village.
