“I’m interested in recuperating toys as simple and cheap frameworks that incentivise free play. From an ideological point of view, open ended toys that don’t aim for the reproduction of normative social structures in any form are always my favourite." - Andrea Francke

Andrea Francke (1978 - Peru/London) long term projects include: Invisible Spaces of Parenthood, a collaboration with Kim Dhillon exploring the legacies of Second Wave feminism and their implications with art and its infrastructures, labour, and care; and Wish You’d Been Here, organising and reflecting on hosting as an artistic and feminist method along Eva Rowson. She is currently a PhD candidate in Latin American Studies at the university of Manchester. Her doctoral research uses Andean Philosophy to develop a decolonized alternative genealogy for social practice in Peruvian Art.
