On Gaze and Anonymity (or See You Don’t See Me)

12. november 2020
UrFear performance by Venuri Perera.
This is an update to:
Multitude of Peer Gynts

Venuri Perera’s performance-lecture departs from her long experiential investigation on anonymous situations in public space as a negotiation towards the social construction of gaze. Venuri brought the experiment as she joined the collaborative work for the Multitude of Peer Gynts project in early 2019, as she initially sought to understand the universe of Huhu and Anitra. In this lecture, from Colombo to Amsterdam, Venuri invites us to question how anonymity can never be separated from the construction of views on gender, race, language, cultural politics, and colonialism.
