SHAME (=_=) SHEIM

WEDNESDAY 9 MARCH 6:30 PM
BOYA ~célula x Seminario Euraca (*)

Who feels ashamed? Who says it and how, if it can be said? Modern tradition and the radical individualism that sustains our capitalist present have educated us to think that whoever feels is always an I, and that the more intimate that feeling is, the more unconfessable or secret it is, the more it belongs to you exclusively and excludingly. But who is this I, and who does it exclude? With respect to which normality or common sense does it feel ashamed whenever it strays from it? And how can someone specific, who uses the pronoun I, take responsibility for its shame and use it in its own favour or in the favour of everybody? Is it even possible for it to do so?

We believe it is, and we look at certain usages of language and certain verbal art practices as opportunities to deprivatize shame and to understand its social dimension. In other words, as a hinge-feeling that connects the intimacy of the subject with the social norm that distinguishes and rationalizes pleasure, value, possibility and luxury. And also as an emotion able to signpost this interiorized and therefore invisible norm, in order to draw attention to it, to name it and as a result be able to change it.
