BOCK GALVEZ, Karin. Performance as a decolonizing artistic practice. Índex [online]. 2023, n.16, pp.183-193. ISSN 2477-9199.

In this text approaches how performance actions can be used to revitalize memories of gender violence that are invisible by the effects of patriarchal-colonial-modern power, and with this, the construct of a decolonizing knowledge is tested. First, it is identified the position that a women's body occupies as a place where violence appears, turning their bodies into a scene of this phenomenon, operating as pedagogies of cruelty. As a counterpart to this situation, the idea that the body produces knowledge that examines this model and revitalizes the field of knowledge is defended. By activating the body as a place endowed with ontology and as an ethical, political, subversive and savage tool, the depoliticized place in which women have been located can be challenged. Performance can convey another behavior that goes in a direction contrary to domination.
