Next Meetup

The Beauty Kit Focus Group
In the Beauty Kit Focus Group, artist Isabel Burr Raty displays the beauty bio-products that she manufactures with genital female fluids. With this project Isabel exposes that woman’s sexual organs posses powers that enhance beauty with scientific evidence. This event will show the exciting results of the first edition of the Beauty Kit Female Farm, that took place at the Cultivamos Cultura Portugal in June 2018 The focus group attendants are invited to inquire on the manufacturing procedures and offer their advice for the possible consumption. The uncanny nature of the products and the Beauty Kit Farms project aiming to enlarge her production level, destabilizes the event. During this event we will explore the unknown abilities of the female body with the audience, universal myths will be discussed and products will be available. This evening is in English.

In her artistic research she interweaves new media, body/live art, lectures and participatory performance proposing hybrid narratives and bio-autonomy practices that play with synthetic magic and compose in situ Sci-Fi. Isabel is currently an associate researcher in a.pass.be, lecturer-teacher of Media art history in ERG Brussels (École de Recherche Graphique) and artist in residency in Amsterdam via the AFK partnered to: Waag, Mediamatic and Prof. Toby Kiers (VU Amsterdam).
