The seminar aims to question the multiplicity of practices, policies and rhetoric that every day represent and build identity (individual or collective) as something static and eternal, to be preserved from those contaminations and connections that actually prove it right to exist. Through different approaches and languages, we want to decolonize the boundaries – physical and symbolic – that are erected to delimit and exclude the other and propose new words, perspectives and ways to recognize ourselves as plural.
