Activities Lectures

Deuniversalising the World

PEI Obert seminari given by Lucía Egaña

10 to 11 Oct. 2019

16 - 21 h



This activity will be streamed live

The legacy of colonialism can still be felt in many aspects of contemporary society. One such consequence is that words remain a private property with a distinctly white hue. Words and reason have been governed by white Western epistemologies, and discourses and practices have been violently tainted by their universalising racism. In response, dissident spaces of resistance let us hear non-white voices and “other”, ancient epistemologies that have been systematically silenced by colonial violence.


Language: The seminar will be held in Spanish. The conference in English will have simultaneous translation into Spanish.
Venue: Meier Auditorium and Capella MACBA.
