Pêdra Costa is a Brazilian Performance Artist and a Visual Anthropologist. S/he is currently doing a Diploma at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and working with queer immigrant artists internationally. Hers work is informed by the aesthetics of post-porn and an investigation about anti-colonial concepts.
About the residency: The focus of my research is the Invisible Knowledge, which I have developed experimentally, based on anti-colonial strategies, self-care pedagogies and non-cartesian epistemologies. I present my performance “de_colon_isation”, which is part of my research at the University of Fine Arts Vienna. I release the book in Brazil “Anti*Colonial Fantasies – Decolonial Strategies” and I work on my project “Anti-analysis”, where I schedule an appointment with 6 artists (individually or in groups) per day, in a free session of 50 minutes each, focusing on art, critical theory and pedagogy.
