Manifesto / I declare

29 Nov. to 02 Dec. 2013

Sí, manifesto

Sí, manifesto

In this workshop we want to recover the disruptive force and purposeful reading of manifestos, pamphlets and other forms of political enunciation, whose concerns run through sexual dissidence, mixed-race difference and black feminism. The workshop proposes a participatory dynamic, with the aim of activating the force of enunciation. The reading of manifestos allows us to explore body language and voice modulation while uttering a discourse of empowerment and agitation. This workshop is coordinated by a group of students from the PEI.

Through manifestos we revise Michael Foucault’s hypothesis on power and the body; we approach the challenges to identity of the colonised body, as problematised by Frantz Fanon, and the techniques of resistance provided by feminist discourses since the seventies. Gloria Anzaldúa, Audre Lorde and Pedro Lemebel, among others, allow us to respond – reading with the body – to some of the contemporary questions and challenges.

Coordinated by: Anyely Marin Cisneros, Sofia Lemos, Dani Medina Orland, Veronica Lahitte and Rebecca Close.
