Alfredo Meschi, is a theatre teacher, an author and a contemporary artist. In 2016 he chose to become a total manifesto, a permanent performance, covering his whole body with 40,000 "X" tattoos, representing the animals killed worldwide every second, just to satisfy our palate. Nowadays his artivisim involves hundreds of thousands of people all over the world, spreading through both institutional and informal contemporary art spaces.
In this episode Yoga Is Vegan's Holly Skodis and Alfredo Meschi talk about Alfredo’s artivism project In the Blink of An Eye. If you are unfamiliar with the term artivism, its the combination of the two words activism and artist where the body of work is decidedly linked to activism. We also talk about ahimsa and how it’s directly related to this project.
