Desuniversalizar el mundo

Seminario PEI Obert dirigido por Lucía Egaña

Los legados del colonialismo siguen afectando en múltiples aspectos a la sociedad contemporánea. Como una consecuencia colonial, la palabra sigue siendo hoy una propiedad privatizada por la blanquitud. La palabra y la razón se han regido por las epistemologías occidentales de personas blancas, y en ese sentido los discursos y prácticas están marcados de una forma violenta por su racismo universalizante. Por este motivo son necesarios espacios de disidencia y de resistencia en los que la palabra y la voz pertenezcan a personas no blancas y a epistemologías consideradas “otras” que, aun siendo ancestrales, han sido sistemáticamente silenciadas por la violencia colonial.

SCREENING PROGRAM curated by Marina Gržinić and Tjaša Kancler

This program focuses on gender multiple borders and sex as politics. The program puts under question the regime of Whiteness, EU politics of segregation and expulsion, hidden histories. It as well talks about work: to be an artist, theoretician and sex worker. How much resistance against exploitation, racism, dispossession, and misery these positions can produce? What are the forms of these resistances? A militant theater, performance, documentary, a burlesque or an intervention on the street, in the classroom?

Prizren, Kosova

The goal of this workshop, which will be held in Prizren, Kosova, in the summer of 2018 is to orient current decolonial and postcolonial discourses towards post-socialist Balkan countries. The workshop will gather international scholars, activists and artists to discuss and analyze anti-capitalist politics, feminism, critical race theory and postcolonialism in the context of Kosova, specifically, and eastern Europe, generally. Hence, the workshop will draw attention to places traditionally deemed unphilosophical as sites of theoretical and practical resistance.

Aftermaths and Transformations: October Revolution 1917 Revisited

Posted · Add Comment

23.,24., and 25. October 2017
conference, exhibition, film seminar, workshop

The Russian Revolution of 1917, which began with the February Revolution and culminated in October with “ten days that shock the world” established the first workers’ socialist state in history and is therefore the preeminent event of the 20th century. Moreover, the two other “events” of the 20th century, namely the two world wars, were connected to carnage and death with no emancipatory impulse.

When thinking of freedom and change, the October Revolution palpably echoes with two other historically momentous revolutions: the Haitian Revolution, the anti-slavery and anti-colonial insurrection of 1791-1804, and the French Revolution of 1789, the ideological, political and social upheaval in the political history of France and Europe by those who were not recognized as the new labor force or as agents of change.
