Netherlands-based and Romanian-born performance artist and theatre-maker Ioana Tudor will present “About how my emotions were stolen by the machine. While I was just sitting there, reading about my father,” in response to the exhibition “Facial Recognition,” on Sunday, March 6, 4-6 PM, and on Friday, March 11, 4-6 PM at The Wende Museum.
