This research project as a qualitative approach, anchored in the theoretical-methodological perspective of life-histories, and aims to reflect on the aesthetic-political activism of female Brazilian activist artists with a history of migration, in order to understand the meanings, concepts and processes of said activism, as well as the representations reflected in different experiences. The study may offer clues to think about the situation of women and, above all, discuss the importance of the arts in the emancipatory processes of migrant women. The research instruments adopted were: semi-structured interviews, field diary and photographic records. Five interviews were conducted via the web, which were transcribed and analyzed in the light of content analysis. The results reveal a multiplicity of experiences that are expressed through performances, occupations of the urban space, music, netativism, video-installation, among others. Aesthetic-political activism is conceived as an action that materializes in aesthetic expressions with an inherently political character, centered on the fight against social inequalities and oppression relations, as well as the creation of other discourses, representations and spaces capable of subverting the instituted social order.

 

Keywords: migration, rock music, women, identity, transglobal sounds.
