POLITICAL DISOBEDIENCE – Tropical Fury

__ABOUT__

When thinking of political disobedience in the global south sphere, the body emerges as a constitutive and fundamental element to list the multiple, unstable, provisional trajectories and marked by a geopolitics of power in the face of coloniality. Bodies in transit that bring from their dissident experiences before the systems of gender and sexuality governed by a hegemonic cis-hetero norm, a set of practices, knowledge, and behaviors that can only be understood if intertwined with the contexts that produced them.

A space in which multiple webs of inequalities and confrontations are woven and negotiated. Therefore, there is no way to think about dissent here without highlighting part of a process of subordination of the subject, just as there is no “queer” identity policy capable of encompassing these multiple experiences.

The group of artists, as well as the works of art that make up this exhibition, builds through this, an epistemic possibility grounded by the field of political imagination, as a starting point to understand the phenomena that constitute the dissident existences that find in coloniality, a constituent element of the world standard of power, the symbolic dimension of this subjective, material and cultural imposition process (Quijano, 2000), as we keep historical and cultural marks from the speeches that constituted us as subordinates (Pelúcio, 2012).

* This project is part of Oyoun‘s curatorial focus:

“EMBODIED TEMPORALITIES”

The program sets to investigate the embodied memories and identities through diasporic and gender-critical perspectives. The body emerges as a changing relationship and at the same time unfolds as an ethical horizon and challenge for the (un)making of the self, identity, and belonging. “Embodied Temporalities’ will unravel the possibilities by the means of the language of art while exploring and diversifying collaborations through intersectional, anti-fascist, and decolonial perspectives.
