On the occasion of the project’s presentation for IVAM titled Rehacer (Break Out of Your Shell) by Azucena Vieites, the artist herself and one of IVAM’s curators, Sandra Moros, will talk about the approaches and development of the proposal.
As its starting point, this project takes the realization of a workshop on feminist fanzine with students from the city of Valencia. Part of its development focuses on “remaking” a previous work by the artist called Break Out of Your Shell (2009).
