Marina Sasseron de Oliveira Cabral is a Brazilian creative, designer, researcher and critical fashion practitioner, interested in the potential of participatory practices, such as performance, for example, as a tool in processes of transformation that aim at unlearning oppressive embodied knowledge, internalized mainly by minority subjects. With extensive experience working as a fashion designer in São Paulo, Marina moved to the Netherlands to broaden her perspective of reality and deepen her theoretical knowledge. As a researcher, her multidisciplinary approach explores the micropolitical aspects of materiality, as well as the performativity of clothes and materials in different socio-cultural arrangements. She has a BA in Fashion Design (SENAC/ BR) and an MA Fashion Strategy (ArtEZ/ NL).
In 2019, she co-founded NOT_____ ENOUGH collective - a collective of three South American women activating non-colonial practices within the fields of fashion, design, art and education. NOT_____ ENOUGH collective was recently named co-curator of the State of Fashion Biennial 2022 (Arnhem/ NL). She currently lives in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
