      Occupation Evacuation Transmission #8

      Teresa María Díaz Nerio and Emma Hedditch
      Dutch Art Institute, Arnhem
    2. In the June session of Occupation Evacuation Transmission, students are meeting with Teresa María Díaz Nerio and Emma Hedditch. On Thursday the 27th, they will screen In Vanda's Room by Pedro Costa for all the students of the DAI.

      On Friday the group will engage in a session led by Díaz Nerio on her research into Caribbean Women's Stereotypes and the Diaspora. She will be discussing the figures of 'la mulata’ and ‘la mamita’ from a Caribbeancentric perspective, approaching the racialized stereotypes and oversexualization of Caribbean female bodies in the mass media. Questions that will guide the workshop focus on the position of spectatorship and self-representation, how we look and listen to another's work and what our position in relation to that work is.

      On Saturday part the group will be working with Emma Hedditch on preparing a presentation for If I Can't Dance's Summer Open Reading Group, to take place on Sunday the 30th of June.

      Teresa María Díaz Nerio is a Dominican visual and performance artist and researcher living in Amsterdam. She graduated as a Bachelor in Fine Arts from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie (2007) and received her Master in Fine Arts from the Dutch Art Institute (2009). She does research often focused on subjects informed by the history of colonial and neocolonial invasions in the Global South challenging the hegemonic Eurocentric and US centric notions of who is who and what is what.

      Occupation Evacuation Transmission is a project conceived by Ian White in collaboration with Emma Hedditch and Jimmy Robert, and curated by If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution. Coordinated by Tanja Baudoin.
