    During two sessions, we will focus on translation, both as a traditional tool of power and inequality and as a potential space for sharing, transformation and resistance. The workshop proposes a collective translation of an excerpt from the book Lectura Fácil (Cristina Morales, 2018), imagining and deciding on our own tools and methods. This activity will be the excuse to think on our mother and acquired tongues, opening debate through readings both from academic and non academic sources, plus any other content proposed and shared during the sessions. These materials will ease us into topics such as hybridity, polyphony and silence, how we leave and erase traces when we speak. The results of the workshop will contribute to the ongoing project escribas modernas.

  Sara Santana López, alumnae from Dirty Art and Maria Paris, alumnae from Approaching Language. Sara is an artist based in Amsterdam working with collaborative libraries and experimental publishing. Conversation and encounter determine her process, establishing a direct space of negotiation swinging between the intimate and the collective.

  Often through installations and writing Maria Paris’ work raises questions on how poetics can be a radical political tool. Concepts of absence and removal are entangled in various forms, reflecting on the emotional and political nature of places and language.
