Luiza Prado
Artist

Dr. Luiza Prado de O. Martins is an artist and researcher whose work engages with material and visual culture through the lenses of decolonial and queer theories. She is particularly interested in technologies and practices of birth control and their entanglements with colonial hierarchies of gender, race, ethnicity, class, and nationality; her current artistic research project, titled “A Topography of Excesses,” examines the transmission of indigenous and folk knowledges about herbal birth control in Brazil as a decolonising practice of radical care.
