Raw ⇆ Ripened ⇆ Happiness

September 6 | 3:00 PM4:00 PM

PERFORMANCE | Hauptplatz 6
Anchi Lin (Ciwas Tahos) (TW)

A set of stereotypes and problematic expressions subtly exist everywhere. This colonial viewing system is nuanced, microaggressions permeate society and slip off the tongue unchecked, perpetuating the colonial perspective. Unconscious biases spread a romanticized notion of the outsider: their otherness, their body, their cultural perspective. Indigenous bodies operating within this system, perhaps without a solid cultural identity, become a tourist body or a romanticized body. These actions stamp out non-materialized oral indigenous knowledge and stories and are leading to vulnerability.
