Performance art, a highly visceral medium, was largely unexplored in Pakistan, but in the last five years a generation of artists have authentically engaged with it to share their untold stories. This lecture will share the works of young performance artists exploring themes of loss, gender conflicts and confrontations, and reimagining the boundaries of the body. The performances take a range of forms (interactive, meditative or theatrical), but their thematic connections expand on each artist’s unique understanding of one or more of these themes.
Auto-captions are available if you watch the lecture with Zoom.
