Manuela Illera,


Bogotá, Colombia

Lives and works in Munich Germany

Manuela Illera is a Colombian interdisciplinary artist mostly involved with time-based media and constellations related to the performing arts. Her feminist political practice, enunciated from the site of migration, situates her in the search for radical communications on decoloniality, the body and subversive identities. Her music, films and group collaborations in various disciplines examine the role of whiteness, capitalism and patriarchal social conformity in culture.
