Nos contagiamos entre sí porque quizás nacimos en el mismo territorio, aunque somos esporas que nos dispersamos y tres de nosotres llegamos a las europas, transitamos llevando el sentir insumiso que heredamos de nuestros ancestrxs. En tiempos de la revuelta del 2019 de Chile nos encontramos: rabia rebelde y colaboración, el genoma que nos hizo mutar. En tiempos de pandemia conectamos nuestro accionar que transita entre prácticas decoloniales ante el organismo neoliberal que nos quiere engullir, pero en su intento fallido nos transformamos en un virus afectivo que busca entrelazar nuestras prácticas des-generadas de subsistencia.

"Curar desde la idea de reciprocidad y
elaboración recompositiva de los afectos"
DIS-CUSSION is a space of encounter dis-generated with active guests in mutual affection for the problematization of normalistic discourses and the confusing times and spaces in which we live.
_VIRUS TDS is an okkupation and a contagion spread of dis-gendered tactics of subsistence in the web.
_VIRUS TDS aims to propagate collectivity, debate and affective and political revindication between the art workers
_VIRUS TDS aims to dismantle the techniques of laboral precarization in the arts and the cultural sector
_VIRUS TDS exists as an organism of encounter and viral protest superimposing affective networks and a digital network from mouth to mouth
_VIRUS TDS to get closer distant realities, expressed by those who lived them
Dis-gendered Tactics of Subsistence:
_to articulate creative tactics of infection
_to infect love
_to visualise and transmit a revel genoma
_to content and disperse of our current situation(s)
_to be a helper virus and to be helped by other dis-gendered virus
_to spread a collaborative and emancipating pandemia
_to mutate into new affective and productive forms
VIRUS TDS [=técnicas des-generadas de subsistencia= dis-gendered tactics of subsistence] is a network of affective and political contagion for the resistance against the productive and reproductive neoliberal system and its deployment of precarised and instrumentalised art and culture. With the outbreak of COVID-19, this scenario has worsened, above all in the Global South. The COVID-19 has been transformed into a neoliberal tool to alienate us, but the quarantine cannot paralyze us, we have to remember that the demands persist and the protests remain alive and continue their spreading in the virtual platform.
Now more than ever, it is necessary to re-signify the confinement and re-activate collective dis-gendered tactics of subsistence to oppose the oppressive fibres. We put the platform VIRUS TDS at everyone's disposal as a mechanism to disseminate and spread collectively dis-gendered tactics of subsistence as a possibility to dismantle the oppressive precarity of the capitalist reality we live in. We invite workxrs from different artistic and cultural sectors to get infected and to infect us as a subversive act of the current concept of contagion.
