2003-2005 Teresa Borasino
Teresa Borasino (born in Lima; lives and works in Amsterdam) is a visual artist and activist. She graduated from the Dutch Art Institute (MFA) and Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú (BFA).
Her work addresses the climate crisis through various mediums – performance, installation, graphic design, and civil disobedience. She often works in collaboration with other artists, architects, academics, and activists to develop new synergies between art and direct action. She co-founded Fossil Free Culture NL in 2016, a collective of artists and cultural workers operating at the intersection of art and activism.
Since 2016, they have worked to stop artwashing: the association of fossil fuel corporations with cultural institutions to clean their image and maintain their social licence to operate.
In 2021 Teresa returned to DAI as a guest tutor for COOP study group Reframing Climate Colonialism: Pleasuring the Radical Imagination
