Abstract

Abstract:

Braiding Borders, a site-specific performance in which women from both Mexico and the US braided their hair together across the US-Mexico border, challenged exclusionary geopolitical demarcations and physical and rhetorical violence against female, immigrant, and Latinx bodies. As a collective, performative mobilization of bodies, it dismantled and reinvented mobilities of belonging and body politics of dissent.
