Corpolíticas Opening

Read this keynote in e-misférica 4.2

Abstract

The intention is to generate an experience that leaves a living trace of the idea of art for social transformation, based on participation, communication and interaction between participants. Words, voice and body will tune the doing-feeling and thinking about the Encuentro’s umbrella topics. These exchanges produce chains of meanings, the body exists insofar as it connects, and this implies interaction and the possibility of relating to an other. By establishing these relationships, we activate a dynamic process, stimulating a state of consciousness generated by concrete, creative, and instrumental actions. Where in politics are we making space for the newness we imagine?
