Coco Fusco: I Like Girls in Uniform – Wagner Morales
48'31”, Brazil, 2006
Guest Director | Wagner Morales
“Reference point on the art scene and intellectual contemporary, Coco Fusco (from the USA with Cuban origins) explores culture clashes through her essays, videos, installations and performances. In Coco Fusco: I Like Girls in Uniform, a new documentary from the series Videobrasil Coleção de Autores, the director Wagner Morales borrows elements from her work and prosaic fragments of her daily life to introduce the viewer to her complex universe of theory and artistic practices. Produced between New York and São Paolo, the film revisits Fusco’s journey as a lecturer, activist, performer and researcher and follows the creative process behind Bare Life Study # 1 – a performance based
on American military torture that the artist presented at the 15th International Festival of Electronic Art Videobrasil (2005).” (Text by VCA)
