Talking with Pêdra Costa

Pêdra Costa (1978) is a Brazilian-German Performance Artist and Visual & Urban Anthropologist based in Berlin and working with queer artists internationally. Through the complexity and fragmented epistemologies from queer communities, their work has built bridges between Performance Art, music, visual art and text, having the body as the main medium. Embodying knowledge almost destroyed by the colonial project and manifesting radical caring against the lack of opportunities of living, their projects engage with the political aesthetics of post-porn and anti-colonial strategies. In connection with mixed and forgotten ancestralities, the artist deals with failure as a transforming creative force.

This event is free & open to the public. Venue is wheelchair accessible.
