Berlin, Germany.</h2> <br> <h2>A video program for the 2nd Transart Triennale, organized by the <a href="http://www.transart.org/" target="_blank">Transart Institute</a>.</h2> <br> <br> <br> <p><center>)</center></p> <br> <br> <br> <p><b>HOW 2 DO: being other, being real</b> is a series of videos by women artists shown as three separate blocks, between longer features at the Transart Triennale.</p> <br> <p>The selection of works centers around Love as Self-Care in the age of  advanced capitalism [& ] a system that promotes feminism without women, racism without races, [& ] sexuality without genders, multiculturalism without ending racism, economic growth without development, and cash flow without money. [Braidotti, 2006]. Self-care as a radical and subversive act, "an act of political warfare"  as Audre Lorde put it , in the face of a system that both produces and criminalizes poverty and displacement, exploiting then discarding black/brown bodies. The videos are an array of personal rituals and narratives that emerge to aid in the healing and confronting of a violent reality; calling to an intelligence beyond the rationality of the  universal [white, male, european-descent].</p> <br> <p>Are humans competent enough to make sense of a reality beyond language, to interpret the non-human? Are the ancestors really watching? Are rituals a technology? How can self-care really be about the self, and not about being better  more fit, more able servants? This collection of videos contains individual, vaporous, and sometimes bleak answers.</p> <br> <p><i>#1</i><br> Eliana Otta, <i>Aprendiz de Ofrenda</i>, 2014<br> Hannah Black, <i>All My Love, All My Love</i>, 2015<br> Silvia Martes, <i>She that comes from the green forest, on a Tuesday</i>, 2013<br> Chantal Pealosa, <i>Sobre la Avenida Mxico</i>, 2013<br> Paula Nacif, <i>Take Care of You</i>, 2016</p> <br> <p><i>#2</i><br> Liz Mputu, <i>Sandra Bland Grief Relief Virtual Memorial + Meditation</i>, 2015</p> <br> <p><i>#3</i><br> Sandra Mujinga, <i>I Am So Bored, But You Are Alright (fast-forwarded for you)</i>, 2015<br> Danielle Dean, <i>No Lye</i>, 2012</p> <br> <br><div class="img"> <img src="http://www.gabycf.com/imgs/transart01.jpg"> <br> <br> <img src="http://www.gabycf.com/imgs/transart02.jpg"> <br> <br> <img src="http://www.gabycf.com/imgs/transart03.jpg"> <br> <br> <img src="http://www.gabycf.com/imgs/transart04.jpg"> <p class="pix">Danielle Dean, <i>No Lye</i>, 2012</p> <br> <br> <img src="http://www.gabycf.com/imgs/transart05.jpg"> <p class="pix">Hannah Black, <i>All My Love, All My Love</i>, 2015</p> <br> <br> <img src="http://www.gabycf.com/imgs/transart06.jpg"> <p class="pix">Chantal Pealosa, <i>Sobre la Avenida Mxico</i>, 2013</p> <br> <br> <img src="http://www.gabycf.com/imgs/transart07.jpg"> <p class="pix">Sandra Mujinga, <i>I Am So Bored, But You Are Alright (fast-forwarded for you)</i>, 2015</p> <br> <br> <img src="http://www.gabycf.com/imgs/transart08.jpg"> <p class="pix">Paula Nacif, <i>Take Care of You</i>, 2016</p> <br> <br> <img src="http://www.gabycf.com/imgs/transart10.jpg"></div> <br> <br> <br> <p><center>)</center></p> <br> <br> <br> </body> </html>
