The Performance Leite Derramado: challenging the controlling images

Rodrigo Severo About the author


The article proposes to analyze the performance Leite Derramado (2013) by artist Ana Musidora from the perspective of the representation of the Black mother. In this regard, we investigate the concept of controlling images by American sociologist Patricia Hill Collins and the images invoked to define black women in Brazil, by Anthropologist Lélia Gonzalez. We reflect on how Leite Derramado explores critical layers on the images/historical representations sorted according to patriarchal and slavocratic values on Black women.
