In this workshop LASTESIS open up a discussion about the political situation in Chile and present their working method of “interdisciplinary collages” with a variety of media and materials. In the first part the collective will provide information about the current situation in Chile, setting up the context for current feminist struggles. Connections will be drawn to performance, body politics, the collective, and the political, while thematizing Silvia Federici and Rita Segato’s theories on systematic violence against women’s bodies. In the second part the content of the debate will be shifted into a staged collage – an application of theories in practice by combining visual and performance art. 

LASTESIS are an interdisciplinary collective from Valparaíso, made up of Daffne ValdésPaula CometaSibila Sotomayor, and Lea Cáceres. They use the tools of performance to deal with questions of gender, transferring feminist theories into a multimedia format. “Capitalism is based on the exploitation of women, of labour, of sexuality and of reproduction.”(Paula Cometa in an interview with Lateinamerika Nachrichten)
