“My style, which is also my unrestrained opinion, is a dangerous mix of humor and distraction; as if upon finding you, I would invite you to go over my work, upon defining me, I would ask you to ‘undefine’ me and once unknown, I would begin to know you”
Diana Raznovich, Argentine playwright and cartoonist has written a dozen plays characterized by humor, intelligence and unwavering defiance of delimiting social systems. Raznovich uses her art to critique and transgress social r
estrictions imposed since her coming of age during the time of the Dirty War (1976-83). Raznovich has won prestigious awards the world over, including a Guggenheim in the U.S.
