CONVIVIAL CULTURES? ON THE CONDITIONS OF POSSIBILITY OF A CONCRETE UTOPIA
Pursuing conviviality through art and culture is a concrete utopia, which is permanently under threat. Based on a short reflection on the conditions of translation as an intra- and intercultural paradigm, the talk will try to explore the potential of that utopia while bringing to the fore some of the difficulties it is forced to face.
