Margarita del Carmen (DK/CL)
Art Hub Residency (Resident, autumn 2022)
Margarita del Carmen is a Chilean-Danish artist working with collaborative research in close relation with territories (rural and urban) and the people living in them. She is engaged in a critical discourse around activist strategies, natural resources and rights to land.
She facilitates spaces for critical and collective learning, focusing on the creation of narratives, that can bring forth reflection and action through artistic processes. Margarita believes that learning must arise from dialog and engagement with our environment. She works with community theatre, listening, crafting common spaces, video and field recordings as poetic narration as well as documentary. For the past years, she has researched the relation between play and urban space – and seeing the city from a child’s perspective.
