Exota irakurketa-ariketak = Ejercicios de lecturas exotas = Exercises in "exota" reading
Image: programme "Explorers".
Through these two reading sessions (May 24 and June 7) we intend to promote reflection on distance, touching on topics such as understanding the "other" and communication between diverse cultures. After identifying the need to distance this relationship from force and violence, the poet and archaeologist Victor Segalen coined the term "exota", with the intention of promoting a respectful physical and sensory approach to the words and images of those who are different to us.
This reading group is open to anyone who wants to explore this line of thinking in greater depth. The activity will involve reading texts by Eduardo Viveiros de Castro, François Jullien, Zhuangzi and others under the direction of Olatz González de Abrisketa.
