Dora Longo Bahia
Dora Longo Bahia creates an autobiographical narrative between fiction and reality in a videoconference with images and sounds appropriated from her work from different media, juxtaposed to a collage of literary texts. Narrated in Portuguese with English subtitles, the video is an aesthetic critique of capitalism and address’s themes that permeate the artists entire production, such as gender violence, abuse of state power, and environmental destruction.
