Thoughts on modernity/coloniality, geopolitics of knowledge, border thinking, pluriversality, and the decolonial option.

Looking for the Meaning of ¨Decolonial Gesture¨ (with a closing analysis of Tanja Ostojic´s ´Looking for a husband with European Union passport.´)

This piece published in e-mispheric closes with an analysis of ground-breaking ¨artistic event¨ (reading the article you will understand why the quotation mark and why event and not performance). It is a reflection on decolonial sensing and knowing, of the knowing and acting embodiment, an effort to submit reasoning to sensing and to highlight aesthesis over aesthetic. Decolonizing aesthetics is necessary to liberate aesthesis.
