"Galindo does not merely create situations and images with the sole aim of provoking critical commentary, but actually articulates a discourse within the reality on which her work acts, such that the roles of participant, observer and commentator are rolled into one another, and the mode of transmission it self becomes is integral to the form and agency of the work."
Clare Carolin, excerpted from After the Digital We Rematerialize Distance and Violence in the Work of Regina José Galindo in Regina José Galindo.

Since 1999, the Guatemalan performance artist Regina José Galindo (born 1974) has drawn attention to her native country's oppression of women and the poor by activating her body as a site for collective inscription. Several of her performances are extreme exercises in the deprivation of dignity: she has been publicly stunned with an electroshock gun and “cleansed” with a power hose; she once commissioned a plastic surgeon to locate the imperfections on her naked body in public with a marker. In Guatemala, these actions are not so easily assigned to the symbolic realm: in a 2005 interview Galindo said, “As Guatemalans, we know how to decipher any image of pain, because we have seen it all up close.” This volume surveys all of Regina José Galindo's works in performance and video from 2006 to 2010.
