Presented by the UC Berkeley Department of Art Practice.

In this talk, interdisciplinary artist Autumn Knight discusses how a series of performance projects use text and/or improvisation as strategies for survival within the institutional space.

Knight is also thinking through cultivating avatars, employing choreography, and withholding as communication.

Luger writes: “In a world polarized politically, economically, racially, and sexually, we are forced to question our trust. However, our trust is the mortar that binds our intelligence.
