SOUNDING IMAGES #11: BRUJAS & TECNOCHAMANAS. FEMINIST VISIONS OF TECHNOSHAMANISM

A didactic sampling and a screening by Cristina Navarro and Patricia Raijenstein.
 
//
 
By means of a live presentation of images and sounds, Cristina Navarro and Patricia Raijenstein will introduce the current production of the so-called “technoshamanism“ from a feminist point of view. They will follow the question of how the prevantly Latinamerica-based (techno)shaman women make use of visions and sound for magical purposes, and how this is related to the practice of European-origin magical women or witches. A presentation of some current works by female Spanish and Latinamerican artists, reflecting on the shaman or witchcraft uses of images and sound will follow.

She is currently working in the School of Electrosonoric Crafts (Escuela de Oficios Electrosonoros) with Jesús Jara, in which they investigate electronic music and sound art pedagogy within an academic and informal setting.
