Seba Calfuqueo

Screening + Talk


Thurday June 20th, 7 pm




La Cápsula and Les Complices* are pleased to welcome Seba Calfuqueo (*1991 Santiago,  Wallmapu/ Chile) for an evening in our shared space.

Seba´s video and performance work poetically tell stories of bodies of water and of occupied territories. With this, Seba critically addresses existing binary and extractive structures formed by colonialism. From their position as a Mapuche and trans artist, they present strategies of survival, resistance and reconnection to their surroundings.
