(1000 items available)
In this brilliant intergenerational dialogue, curator Camila Marambio (born 1979) and Cecilia Vicuña (born 1948), one of the leading Indoamerican artists of our times, converse about mestizaje/miscenegation, ecological disaster, eroticism and decolonisation in their multilingual, subversive and irreverent humorous slang. The result is a unique book that presents a conversation that is both poetic and critical.The dialogue crosses over from Spanish to English, from poetry to academic argumentation, and from art to science. Defining "true performance" as "that of our species on Earth: the way we cause suffering to others, the way we warm the atmosphere or cause others species to disappear,Slow Down Fast, A Toda Raja proposes a necessary method for decolonial liberation, which reveals the transformative power of art in search of "an ecology of the soul, the resplendence of our connectivity to each other and the cosmos.
