  • Dolores from 10 to 22

Dolores from 10 to 22 began as a streaming video net.performance created by Ricardo Dominguez and Coco Fusco. The performance is based on a true story of a Mexican maquiladora (factory) worker who was accused of trying to start a union in her workplace and was locked in a room alone for 12 hours to intimidate her into signing a letter of resignation. We performed on Thanksgiving Day 2001, at Kiasma in Helsinki, Finland. The 12-hour performance was transmitted to the Internet via several surveillance cameras. Fusco took the 12 hours of video and edited it to 98 minutes and created a video installation based on the performance. The video has been shown at the Dundee Contemporary Art Center in Scotland and at the Memling Museum in Brugge, Belgium. It received an honorable mention from the 2003 Transmediale in Berlin and will show there in February 2003. [End Page 156]
