The Words We Still Don't Have

Cicle de conferències i activitats al voltant de FEMINISMES!

From October 14 to December 16, 2019

c/ Montealegre, 5 - 08001 Barcelona

This cycle takes as its starting point the radical gesture of feminism in the seventies in order to explore pending issues by the present feminisms and other movements of collective emancipation.
All revolutions are also a revolution of words: a new world must be described and narrated in its complex diversity, with its lights and darkness. The struggle of feminism has also been a desire for finding ways to say what was not named or described before. I
n his famous speech, Afro-American poet Audre Lorde invited us to transform silence into words and action because it is only when we talk about ourselves that we can participate in the creation of the world we all share.
This cycle invites us to think about some of the key ideas of feminism that are nowadays part of our political vocabulary, bearing in mind that the territory of what has not yet been said or has been silenced remains vast, and there are many people who fight for finding the words with which they tell their own story.
