Hermosa Intervención is a collective of Afro-descendant women based throughout the Americas who use their bodies and voices to reconstruct and share the history of Black women, which is not taught in school. This practice of recovering historical memory allows them to understand and reconstruct the present from an antiracist perspective.
Primarily through the medium of performative intervention, they occupy public spaces attempting to interrupt daily life and challenge different audiences. Through artistic practice, Hermosa Intervención proposes a critical, sensible, and respectful perspective on Black women’s bodies in their diversity and offers Black women aesthetic tools to reclaim their own narratives.
