We bring our sounds, chaos, languages, and stories with us and reclaim a space and our right to inhabit it.

La gozadera: Festivity resilience and loudness
Live painting – ephemeral space invasion
As the student exhibition occurs we overtake a corner of the kkh with colorful psycho (delic) lights, music and paint. On our backs and through our hands and mouths we bring our sounds, chaos, languages, and stories with us and reclaim a space and our right to inhabit it.
Milagros Bedoya initiates the invitation by drawing Guaman’s Poma’s characters among the Mata Paco’s and our beloved Peruvian beer. We enter the space with song lyrics as iconic as “Me gritaron negra” (They yelled at me, Black) by Victoria Santa Cruz and narcosis’s “Sucio Policía verde” (Dirty green cop). On the walls we encounter Rossana Mercado-Rojas painting gigantic colorful breasts/mountains shooting milk, liquid of life. Indigenous cultures, the mountains, are warriors, protectors and givers of life. Dadoras de Vida. ¡Abya Yala Resiste!
The myth of the good immigrant resounds through the strong voice of Princess Jimenez and her spoken word intervention.
Volveremos y seremos millones (We will be back and we will be millions)
