Quotes from Prague

We would like to share some of the many, many quotes from the guestbook at our stand at PQ15 in Prague:

“There is certainly something about wanting to embody a different body. To see the world differently. As a Afro-Latina America woman I have had no choice but to see the world through a myriad of lens. I have always had to learn a deep degree of empathy for survival. It is simply the nature of oppression. You learn the opressor’s ways fully + comprehensively in order to defend yourself. For others, this degree of empathy may not warrant such simplicity. For others, they have never had to contemplate what it must be to live in another body for what benefit is it to them? I believe my culture is not a costume but a very lived experience. Complicated, intricate, and deeply long. I hope this space opens up critical dialogue regarding the weight of where we come from, who we are, and where we want to go.                                                                                                                             Love, Bronte Velez, USA”

“Really nice! We are only bones – the rest is image. Love it.                                                                                                                 Beth from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil”

“This was a different experiment for me. At first I thought every person in the city was looking at me, but then I realized that that the only one who was looking at me was just me. Then, my new aspect turned natural to me and for an instance, I felt another person.Thank you so much for the experience!                                                                     Kisses from Florencia Tutusaus, Argentina”
