Felix Bernstein & Sophia Le Fraga

Felix Bernstein has produced multiple short videos for YouTube, in which he’s embodied characters ranging from Amy Winehouse to Lamb Chop. He was a featured performer in George Kuchar’s late diary films, Red Krayola’s opera Victorine at the Whitney Biennial 2012, and Andrew Lampert’s multimedia piece for the Whitney restaurant, ‘Synonym for Untitled.’ His own performances have been featured in events such as Andrew Durbin’s Totem VI and Lucia della Paolera’s otherlist. His critical writing has appeared in the Brooklyn Rail and his first narrative film Unchained Melody debuted at Anthology Film Archives in September. He is currently writing a critical overview of hip academic radicalism (from Queer Theory to Žižek) and its intersections with the artworld, pop culture, and avant-garde poetry.

Brooklyn-based Sophia Le Fraga studied Linguistics and Poetry at New York University. She is the author of I DON’T WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE INTERNET (2012) and I RL, YOU RL (2013). Her work has been exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum, the Corcoran Gallery, and throughout Berlin and Spain. Her writing has appeared in Lambda Literary Review‘s Poetry Spotlight, Coconut, HTMLGiant and Lemon Hound, among other publications.
