Submerged Visualities in Latin American Literature, Film and Performance Art: New Perspectives on Nature and Indigeneity

This Thematic Research Group focuses on the entanglements between indigenous knowledge and artistic practices, understanding how nature/environment is staged through Art and different media beyond western frameworks. Thus, we seek for submerged perspectives: other ways of gaining visibility and multiple possibilities of agency that subvert the extractive gaze. Our research explores how film, literature and performance art represent and perform the nexus between conviviality-inequality and to which extent they criticize and invert asymmetric structures in relationships between human and non-human actants.
