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 DESIRELESS (BEFORE PARADING YOURSELF AS HERETIC) Tania Bruguera, visual artist and activist from Havana, Cuba, will reconstruct the story of her mother -who recently died- and her country through the things she found in her mother’s house. ¨When my mom died I discovered she was a compulsive keeper. The anxiety created over the years of scarcity made her keep whatever could be potentially useful. I have taken all the objects she kept to go over them one by one while narrating all the things I remember she told me, in an effort to remember as much as possible of all she wanted me to know¨.

Participation in the event takes place via the software Zoom by which the audience can see the performance live, make comments and exchange visions and insights afterwards. At the same time, the show can also be followed in the livestream.
