Sala 29 A, DETUCH
This work group has been conceived of as a space of debate and reflection on the practices of racism, memory, and punishment. The idea is to think of these practices and how they are woven together by history, bodies, and emotions in contemporary societies. The main objective is to generate investigative proposals through the mise-en-scène of experiences, images, and objects that summon the senses. The end goal is to collectively build a project through the collaboration of participating scholars, artists, and activists.
