Expuestas: registros públicos (Exposed: Public Records) was an exhibition that documented thirteen of the participatory cultural interventions produced for this long-term project, centered on transforming violence against women into a visible and public phenomenon through the individual experiences of women.

  • Performance tours guided by me
