MUERTAS (DEAD) is a performance that openly condemns the femicides that happened in Chile in 2016, by steering the attention of the beholder in the form of perpetrated death. Women take possession of the public space and put themselves in the place of the dead. Body, politics, and memory intersect in denunciation and reflection.
