Our existence is immersed in cycles of endless symbiotic exchanges; geopoetics: vital languages ​​that contain a palimpsest that records the traces of multiple inhabitants in reciprocity and correspondence. In spite of this, we are conditioned to a decaying world that makes its way through compulsive separation: space/time, body/mind/soul, past/present/future, human/nature, civilization/barbarism, North/South, I/others: modern-colonial logic that has hijacked and conditioned the possibility of the Other, in order to maintain a system of division, extraction, and exploitation. What sensible paths will allow an ethics to achieve a world where many worlds fit?
We want to spark deep conversations about being together and being different in the context of South-South exchanges between previously colonized countries. In collaboration with the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre, we’ll talk about artistic practices and sex/gender-based dissidence in Southeast Asia and Latin America.
