Lorena Rivero de Beer is a performance artist and activist born in Spain. She moved to England in 2003 and she is currently based in Liverpool.

Through it she strives to generate experiences that encourages us to look and experience the ‘other’, understand our position in the world, help us to cross borders and increase our power of action.

She is also part of different creative and activist networks. She is a founder member of The Free University of Liverpool and The Politics and Aesthetic Reading Group.
