    Please join us for Juan Obando's lecture on video, performance and social practice.

    Juan Obando’s work focuses on the intervention of social systems through the orchestration of mediated experiences and the development of locative performances, collaborative networks, and experimental publications —using social phenomena as raw material in a critical and playful approach.
