Border Disturbance

September 20 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Border Disturbance

In the 1990s, Electronic Disturbance Theatre (EDT) made groundbreaking work at the intersection of art, activism, and the budding cyberspace. It developed a form of artistic direct action (Electronic Civil Disobedience), using cybernetic performance to make marginalized political issues visible. These practices developed into border disturbance actions, from the US-Mexican borderlands to the skies of Germany. The triangulation of virtual spaces, contemporary art and performance, and borders remain a potent and important space of disturbance today. Ricardo Dominguez is a co-founder of EDT and Critical Art Ensemble in Tallahassee, Florida in the 1980s. He was born in El Paso, TX and grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada. Currently he is the chair of the Department of Visual Arts at UC San Diego. Ricardo will focus on his artivist research methods and practices in developing critical art projects in relation to historical, contemporary, and speculative concerns.
