The artist Katia Sepúlveda engages Margarita Calfio and Angélica Valderrama in a performative dialogue entitled Hacia un feminismo mapuche [Pu zomo mapuchegealu] [Para um feminismo mapuche]. Drawing upon their life-experience as feminists and women from Mapuche communities in Chile who flit between urban and indigenous spaces, between theory and activism, the conversations will upon the exploration of the very term feminism, and the need to break with an oppressive Western discourse. The dialogue is a continuation of the work Mapuche Feminism?, a 5-channel sound choreography (Temuco Chile, 2013).
