3rd Day of Unbound: Krishna Istha

3 Items total

"For the third day of Unbound, I have chosen three books that I would have loved to receive as Christmas gifts but because no one ever buys me cool shit, I bought them myself. (JK. I borrowed them, performance artists don’t have money for books!). The books are about artists and discourses that mean a lot to me as a person and as a practitioner. They speak to subverting or reclaiming identity as Black and/or people of colour, as queer people and as trans people. Being of an identity that is marginalised already sets us up for a life of performing on an everyday basis, just to survive in a world dominated by assumptions. Performance is at the core of our identities and these books speak to our experiences of not just art but also life." 

Krishna Istha is a writer, comedian and performance artist.
