Lia García (La Novia Sirena) is a trans feminist artist and activist from Mexico City. With studies in Pedagogy from the National Autonomous University of Mexico, her artistic work aims to establish a dialogue between performance art, affect, and radical pedagogy as a decolonial methodology. In her current research project, ‘Skin Feminisms: Feeling the Trans Experience’, she analyses performance as a radical pedagogy that transcends the museum space and takes streets, schools and complex spaces, using love to intervene their realities and build other types of communication with the trans experiences of resistance.
