In the workshop the participating performance artists will use their own embodied experiences to revise their notions of knowledge, examine the power relations of today and amplify silenced voices in the future through performative acts. The focus will be on materialising and dematerialising memory, history and heritage. At the core of the workshop, participants are welcome to broaden the perspectives of decolonisation of knowledge with queer strategies looking into perspectives of normative structures in humans and animals as well as human relations to animals.
