Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



The artist and experimental filmmaker Ana Vaz shares in this interview a critical overview of her body of work. From the initial elements that would structure her artistic practice up to the connection between cinema and the colonizing modernity, the artist describes how the moving image can participate in this discussion, challenging established forms of representation. Inspired by the pedagogic contributions of Paulo Freire and Jacques Rancière, Ana Vaz assumes the importance of undisciplinarity in her work – the challenging of the borders of traditional disciplines – and a “walk and listen” methodology.
