She is interested in proposals from art and literature addressed to gender dissidence between the 70’s and 80’s in Brazil and the connections between the practices of the Brazilian Poem/Process movement and the mail art network which have used different poetic and political tactics to resist military dictatorships in Latin America. She received her Master’s degree in Literary Theory and Comparative Literature from the University of Sao Paulo, in Museums Studies and Critical Theory from the Independent Studies Program at MACBA, and from October 2013 she took part in the PhD in Practice at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna.
