In a collaboration between disabled women from

Scotland and Mexico, experimental and archival

moving image practice is used to reclaim agency

in representation. Artists Emily Beaney and Ana

García Jácome seek to disrupt medicalised

accounts of disabled women's lives. Drawing

upon archives in Mexico City and at Glasgow

Women’s Libray and the Wellcome Collection, we

have come together to explore how audio-visual

practices can interrogate issues of representation

across the international contexts. Radically re-

working archival footage with experimental sound

and image compositions, collaborations with

disabled community members in workshops, and

with artists from Scotland and the Femidiscas

collective in Mexico, contribute creative

interventions, positioning disabled women as

active agents of change.

An Unlimited International Partner Award 2023 commission made possible thanks to funding from the British Council.
