    the editor of the magazine Arte y Políticas de Identidad Art and Identity Politics The video performance La voz humana The Human Voice deals with the violence contained in language and how words operate in the public sphere and the limitations of discourses formed under imposed circumstances Based on a passage from Miguel Cerceda s book El origin de la mujer sujeto The Origin of the Female Subject from 1996 which talks about different linguistic spaces and how these are gendered this video is an inquiry into the female voice not always the artist s and in many cases reflecting stereotypical forms of speech It proposes a fusion of body and language beyond the non critical assimilation of hegemonic paradigms and far from the ahistorical position of empty silence Courtesy María Ruido Document media Video colour sound 7 00 min Issue date 1997 Tags language patriarchy voice Archive Signature RUI 1 Back to selection Complete Archive About the project Partners Imprint Contact Find us on facebook abstraction activism aggression aging appropriation authorship be coming beauty body control body object relation cabaret capitalism childhood collectivity conflict consumerism craft dance choreography de construct identities death desire destruction dis ability dis appearance dreamscapes

    performance Vacuum shows the artist vacuuming the barren hills of Palestine This absurd but simple act not only casts a critical shadow on gender roles but also relocates the act of vacuuming and cleaning which is traditionally ascribed to women from the private sphere into a politically charged space In one sense however the mountain is already cleaned it contains only stones no people live in the area Viewing this work a Palestinian spectator couldn t help but recall the Zionist slogan a land without people for a people without a land Aida Nasrallah Courtesy Raeda Saadeh Document media Two channel video installation colour sound 17 07 min Issue date 2007 To be seen in Centro Cultural Montehermoso Vitoria Gasteiz Spain 7 October 2011 15 January 2012 Tags conflict failure housework carework private public resistance violence Back to selection Complete Archive About the project Partners Imprint Contact Find us on facebook abstraction activism aggression aging appropriation authorship be coming beauty body control body object relation cabaret capitalism childhood collectivity conflict consumerism craft dance choreography de construct identities death desire destruction dis ability dis appearance dreamscapes durational performance exhaustion extended body failure fashion glamour femininity flesh fluxus fragmentation gaze happening health
