The history of humanity has remained inscribed on the bodies of Latin American women. On their bodies – conquered, marked, enslaved, objectified, exploited, and tortured – one can read the terrible stories of power and struggle that shape our past. Bodies are fragile only in their appearance. It is the female body that has survived conquest and slavery. Like a stone, it has stored the hatred and rancor of memory in order to transform it into energy and life.

Regina José Galindo is a performance artist who specializes in body art.

‘‘Piedra

Soy una piedra

no siento los golpes

la humiliación

las miradas lascivas

los cuerpos sobre el mio

el odio.

Soy una piedra

en mi

la historia del mundo.

Mi cuerpo permanece inmóvil, cubierto de carbón, como piedra. Dos voluntarios y alguien del público orina sobre el cuerpo piedra.
