Raju Rage

Raju Rage is an interdisciplinary artist who is proactive about using art, education and activism to forge creative survival.

Based in London and working beyond, they primarily use their non-conforming body as a vehicle of embodied knowledge; to bridge the gap between dis/connected bodies, theory and practice, text and the body and aesthetics and the political substance. They work in performance, sculpture, soundscapes and moving image, focusing on techniques of resistance and utilising everyday objects and everyday life experiences in communicating narratives around gender, race and culture. They investigate history, memory and trauma, with an emphasis on coloniality, its continuation and impact on the body and contemporary diasporan identity.

Raju Rage is an organiser and member of Collective Creativity arts collective and is a creative educator with an interest in radical pedagogy.
