Registration required:

In this session, Cardona Otero will depart from his most recent performance art piece, Taxonomía of a Spicy Espécimen, to engage in a conversation about his work in the arts and in education. In Cardona’s words: “I’m a work in progress. As well, more and more I am understanding my performative art and pedagogy as works in progress. I am affected by this pandemic racism, this antiblackness, this sexism, and this state of white supremacy; and this infection affects what and how I craft and enact.”

Javier Cardona Otero is a performing artist, critical educator, and facilitator of art experiences as education. His artistic scholarship, which has been presented throughout the Caribbean, Latin America and the United States, seeks to critically investigate sociocultural capitals particularly regarded to issues of race, gender, and the environment. His work is interdisciplinary and intersectional, focusing on art-making as research and embodied artwork as pedagogy. Currently, Javier is a Curriculum and Instruction PhD student in the Arts Education Program at Indiana University-Bloomington.

In this new virtual series, Center for World Performance Studies invites performers and scholars from diverse disciplines to reflect on how performance is being used to respond to the political, social, health and environmental crises that we face at this moment. Each guest will give a 30 minute presentation, and then engage in 30 minutes of Q&A. Sessions will take place over Zoom and require advance registration. You can read about the panelists, register for these events, find recommended reading and resources and/or request recordings of past events at
