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.

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.
