In English

In this series of lectures, we learn about the specific understanding of the body and the subject present in many native cultures across the Americas and its subsequent implications for the concept of identity, with a particular focus on the relationship between humans, animals and beings other-than-human. A Wixarika shaman, a dancer, an anthropologist, a dance theorist, a de-colonial scholar and a philosopher share ideas about the notion of “sacred land”, the decolonization of the senses, about indigenous contemporaneity and ritual art, about animals and humans (and what lies behind or above those categories) and about possible spaces of resistance.

Lectures: Fahim Amir, Ivo Gurschler, Nicole Haitzinger, Juan José Ramirez, Amanda Piña, Rolando Vázquez
