According to Mbembe (2014), there is a concept genealogy in the territorialization of identity, on the one hand, and in the racialization of geography, on the other hand, in which the myth of a racial city (polis) cannot forget that at the center of the problem, both body and territory are affected intersectionally by capitalism, colonialism and heteropatriarchy. Presented by Dr. Fabian Vivar, this panel will seek to think through a critical theory and practices that learn from the micrological field, how the notion of the bodies-territories is constructed in the performative life experiences of the subalternized people. Beyond corporal violence experienced in the favelas, it is about occupying a space of expression that allows the claim, the movement, the ability to recover and reveal themselves. Thus, there is evidence of a fracture capacity, agency and incorporation into an aesthetic which allows to bring body-territorial identities that are no longer considered problematic or Pathological. The panel will feature presentations from Dr. Fabian Andres Cevallos Vivar, Danitza Mercedes Luna, Emerson Pontes da Silva and Colectivo LASTESIS.
