Basic Talks with Thais Muniz
Thais Muniz is an interdisciplinary artist interested in the territories of identity, belonging, memory, displacement and inwardly love. Through her practices, she builds bridges and open conversations to propose reconnections, change and healing from an anti-colonial perspective against innumerable mechanisms of collective illness. Muniz's work aims to unfold intimate practices of collective learning through community workshops, performances, installations, and urban interventions. She also expands her visions through audio-visuals, collages, celebrations, and sculptural textiles.
Thaís is the founder of Turbante-se, a body of work and research she started in 2012 in Brazil, about identity in the Afro-Atlantic communities through turbans, headwraps, textiles, and the relationships of non-verbal communication implied through the head, from historical to contemporary times.
