Online Course in 3 modules

The goal is to offer a course with three modules, contemplating a wide formation of the interested public, based on the indigenous ways of being and doing in Brazil and Latin America, focusing on three pillars: epistemology, art and activism. The proposal is to give visibility to the action of indigenous, cis and trans women, and for this, 80% of the program counts on the participation of thinkers and artists with this profile. 

Module 1 - Indigenous epistemology

Knowing in order to transform. The colonial process was so violent that, by imposing its categories and norms, it destroyed (and still destroys) indigenous ways of thinking. To question the productivity of contemporary society, we propose an attentive listening to Amerindian thought, from the following pillars: 1) Foundations: territoriality, frontier, collectivity, ecology, on what is alive, spirituality. 2) Continued coloniality, social invisibility, racism. 3) Ancestry, time, mythology and creation.

Module 2 - Indigenous art today

We chose the term indigenous art today to escape the trap of the contemporary. Thinking that in the linear timeline of art history, not always what is produced today is in what can be called contemporary as a proposition of modernity-coloniality. The idea of time is pierced by the spiral dimension, without the distinction primitive-civilized, naif or modern art. How to think of art outside the canons of art history and in its ritual, everyday, playful dimension, entwined with life. 

Module 3 - Indigenous women - activism and well-living

There is an ongoing debate about the existence or not of an indigenous feminism since the notion of gender comes from a colonial proposition. This is why it is a very important reflection today, considering the specific demands of indigenous women and their particular claims, but being able to think about a policy that expands their actions and thoughts within Brazilian society as a whole.  Thinking about public and private relations, about community stakes, about the relationship of the body with the land, are singular clues to talk about a non-universal patriarchy. This course aims to listen to these women and their claims, and above all to make this struggle in Brazil visible.
