“Deepfaked Ocaña Wishing Me Goodnight is a celebration of José Perez Ocaña (1947-1983), the Spanish artist, performer, anarchist and queer activist. We meet him as a ghost – a deepfake – during a poetic and diaristic journey, revisiting queer historiographies under the Spanish democratic transition. Ocaña's apparition allows other guardian angels around us to be seen, reminding us of subversion, heritage, and pleasure.
