Class Visit: Comunidad Catrileo+Carrión


Monday, December 7, 2020, 4:30pm to 5:45pm

Comunidad Catrileo+Carrión will be joining Professor Marcelo Garzo Montalvo's Decolonial Aesthetics and Poetics class on Monday, December 7, 2020 at 4:30pm EST. Comunidad Catrileo+Carrión is a Mapuche community of two spirited/queer (epupillan) people, Antonio Catrileo and Manuel Carrion, who work by articulating spaces of reciprocity based on their practice of artistic creation-research. Their films reflect on the relationships between indigenous visibility and colonial violence through a critical lens that wants to denounce dispossession, but at the same time reflecting and showing other indigenous non-reproductive worlds as possible futurities.

Master degree in Chilean and Hispanic-American Literature. Author of the mapuche epistemology book “Awkan epupillan mew: dos espíritus en divergencia” (2019) and the poetry book “Diáspora”(2015).

Manuel Carrion is two-spirit/epupillan Mapuche artist and researcher from Pikunmapu/Qullasuyu, member of the Catrileo+Carrión Community and also is member of the Global Center for Advanced Studies Latin America, Manuel is currently a second-year student at the PhD in Literature at the University of California San Diego, and a Fulbright International Fellow.
