INVASORIX / Daria Chernysheva, Mirna Roldán, Nina Hoechtl, Maj Britt Jensen, Natalia Magdaleno López, Liz Misterio and Naomi Rincón-Gallardo, 2013 – up to date

We are artistix womenix between the ages of 26 and 37, who live and work in Mexico City, and who make up a working group interested in creating songs and video-clips as a form of queer/cuir feminist protest. Invasorix are Daria Chernysheva, Mirna Roldán, Nina Hoechtl, Maj Britt Jensen, Natalia Magdaleno López, Liz Misterio and Naomi Rincón-Gallardo. We have been intermittently meeting since the spring of 2013. Through constant dialogue between us and with our imaginaryx friendx – Gloria Anzaldúa, Pina Bausch, bell hooks, Pedro Lemebel, Silvia Rivera Cusicanqui, María Sabina, Patti Smith, Annie Sprinkle, etc. – we have written and produced three songs and three video-clips (The anus unites us, Nobody here is illegal and The intellectual macho), that question gender roles and the artists’ tasks, as well as reflecting upon precarity, dreaming on alternative and/or utopic ways of being.

Besides, we have carried out several performances in (interventions to?) diverse educational contexts.

 

Among the challenges we have faced working togetherix, doubtlessly one of the main has been the challenge of writing and working collectively, as well as the difficulty of finding the chance, namely, the time, to get togetherix and build this space for affection, trust and reunion, which takes a lot of care, perseverance, and some sort of spark as well. This is a space in which we invent dynamics for learning and unlearning.
