Mariela displays printed banners in the studio
Mariela stands on the staircase holding up a large banner as her cat watches. The banner she's holding reads "cuerpos parlantes" - 'bodies forward' - and the Colectiva Lohana Berkins banner to the side reads "the time for revolution is now."

In this in-depth interview, Mariela describes her process as an artist and activist and the origin and future of Seriagrafistas Queers.
