The Opening Monologue, 2018

The Opening Monologue is a circular, nonhierarchical narrative, a flow of words that try to resist the colonizing forces of sound, language and image. Written as a poem, the narration of the text is made by a manipulated voice, somewhere between human and machine, layered by a variety of sounds reminiscing of ambient tracks, political demonstrations and a red carpet event.

17/06, 18h30 - 19h
How to Make a Mask, 2018

How to Make a Mask is a scripted monologue accompanied by images that put various modes of subjectivity into play. The text reflects upon the role of the individual in such a collective sociopolitical situation, using references from theater theory to makeup tutorials. The performance also refers to the growing exposure of the individual, through the accumulative data on social media, its manipulation by big data resources companies, and its biopolitical consequences on human and nonhuman actors as well as their construction of private and public subjectivities.
Pedro Barateiro was born in 1979 in Almada (Portugal), and lives and works in Lisbon. He participated in several international art biennales (São Paulo, Berlin, Sydney, Busan...). His work has been exhibited internationally in solo or collective shows and was featured, among many, in the « Ça & là » exhibition, which was held at the Fondation d’entreprise Ricard in Paris in 2012.
