THURSDAY, DECEMBER 10th
2:30 pm - Language as a Battlefield
In English and streamed
To name is to focus thought. Words shape reality. While diplomats and politicians negotiate hard over the removal or retention of a single word in a final agreement, some words seem to dominate the debate without being questioned: innovation, growth, universal, adaptation... This discussion, intersped with performances, will attempt to deconstruct linguistic hegemony and will question the realities that hide or reveal our discourses.
With Heidi Quante and Alicia Escott of the “Bureau of Linguistical Reality”, artists (USA), Magali Daniaux & Cédric Pigot, artists, (FR), Nathalie Blanc, researcher and David Christoffel, of La Maison des Ecrivains et de la Littérature (FR), « les écrivains pour le climat ». Moderated by Shannon Jackson, Head of the Center for art Researches at Berkeley University, (USA).
