NL Een avond met films van Spaanse visuele kunstenaar Raisa Maudit. Haar werk gaat over de representatie van lust, constructies, tegenstellingen en verwachtingen. Vaak in de vorm van een vraag, een wijzende vinger of een klein opstandje. Raisa’s video’s zijn daden van omverwerping en non-acceptatie. Postanarchisme, transfeminisme, populaire cultuur, identiteit, het lichaam als een gereedschap en het occulte zijn sommige van haar terugkerende thema’s. De kunstenaar is bij de vertoning aanwezig voor een Q&A na afloop.

Postanarchism, transfeminism, popular culture, identity, the body as a tool and the occult are some of her recurring themes. The artist will be present for a Q&A after the screening.
