TQU is very happy to invite you to our first bar night at FAQ Laden! As a very special guest Rurru Mipanochia, an amazing artist from Mexico City will be there to talk to you about how sexuality was conceived in pre-Columbian Mexico.
Rurru Mipanochia is a cyborg built in Nibiru, but discarded to the earth by defects in its operating system, reborn in Mexico City. Rurru studied visual arts in the Faculty of Arts and Design, UNAM, and graduated in the year 2012. In 2015-2016 Rurru got chosen for the program of young creators, FONCA (Fondo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes), a renowned art scholarship in Mexico. Her/his/its works were exhibited in Mexico, Latin America, Europe and the USA, as well as published in national and international magazines.
Before the Spanish conquest, sexuality used to be much more open. For example, the Maya allowed homosexuality and lesbianism, also the Huastecs, and in Zapotec civilization had a declared third sex. Rurru will talk about how gender was considered something much more fluid and tell you some myths around menstruation and give you some insight in how Rurru has made a personal reinterpretation of these researches based on some anthropologists like Miriam López Hernández, Noemi Quezada, Edward Seler, Patrick Johansson, Atahualpa Huntar and more.
You will also get to see some of Rurru’s artworks, which we will project on the walls.
