From February 20 till March 10, video artist Lucia Hinojosa—also a collaborator of Liz Magic Laser’s Bystander—will present her piece A Study on Social Poetics at Recess. The video is an experimental documentary that investigates Mexican social and political issues through video poetry. It is composed of three portraits of Mexican women, showing the different ideologies coexisting in the same country.

Lucía Hinojosa (Mexico City, 1987) is an artist working with video, installation, collage, painting and printmaking. She received a BFA in Visual & Critical Studies at The School of Visual Arts. Her practice explores ways of understanding collective self-perception through sociology, politics, poetry and memory. Lucía is the founder and editor of the art and literature magazine diSONARE.
