TANIA BRUGUERA'S CONTROVERSIAL PERFORMANCE IN COLOMBIA







a round table with the presence of a leader of the displaced, the sister of a kidnapped person, an ex-guerrilla member, all discussing around the figure of 'the hero' - the fourth guest, a paramilitar didn't arrive...

cocaine being passed around for the public to snort...

the public discussing around what is happening...

the curator of the event disassociating himself from what is happening...

some colombians ashamed of the event...

students defending the guerilla...

political correct colombian art critics attacking bruguera calling her a "fallen goddess" (as if they were waiting for her fall!) and "gringa" and "miami exiled cuban" and feeling offended by her using colombian cliches...

maybe bruguera's performance actually disturbed the sensible and generated something that disturbed the public's psyche and imaganiary...

read some of the controversy (in spanish):
