Group Exhibition | “Read my lips” at TEOR/éTica, San José, Costa Rica

October 13, 2015


This exhibition aims to explore the various uses of language in the process of criticism and resistance from feminism, gender and sexuality, both in the field of art and activism. The title “Read my lips” is a direct interpellation to the visitor. All the assembled pieces are a stubborn exercise to communicate that, which, in some contexts, isn’t allowed to be spoken of aloud, that which is persecuted or banished to underground space and symbolic illegality. Read my lipsThe exhibited projects seek to create other forms of speech, alternative communication systems, codes of self-defense and confrontation against the violence frames that still today, are imposed on our bodies. It is about breaking the silence under every circumstance, declaring and shouting despite all consequences.
