Teresa Borasino

Teresa Borasino is a Peruvian artist based in Amsterdam. Her work balances upon the fertile edges between art and activism, the space between poetics and politics, and the radical engagement with social movements.

She co-founded Fossil Free Culture in 2016, a collective of artists, activists, and scholars working at the intersection of art and climate justice. Fossil Free Culture NL confronts oil and gas sponsorship of public cultural institutions in the Netherlands. Their work includes the 2017 impromptu #droptheshell and #spoiledlandscapes performances at the Van Gogh Museum, protesting the museum’s ties to oil giant Shell.

Recently the collective started the Disobedient Art School, a pedagogical framework for non-hierarchical collective learning through art practices that intervene in systems of oppression. Since 2021, Borasino has been conducting artistic research into the Andean cosmovision and its ecologies of ancestral knowledge and practice.
