Per una fotografia decoloniale: verso un approccio critico, situato e partecipativo alla memoria dei corpi subalterni

Nicola Lo Calzo (École nationale supérieure d’arts de Paris-Cergy)


This contribution proposes a reflection on decolonial photography conceived as a reflexive artistic practice in permanent dialogue with the human sciences, such as history, anthropology and photographic theory, as well as with queer, feminist and post-colonial studies. Through an interdisciplinary and situated approach based on the concepts of micro-history, subalternity, coloniality, positionality, participation, agency, care contract, body-archive and queer posture, photography can shape a critical discourse on the subaltern worlds, resulting in an ethic and denormative epistemiological aesthetics.
