The “map of books” that we have read, come from, at most, ten countries in the world. Almost all of these books are concentrated in the US, Canada, and some parts of Europe.
These books, and countries, are full of institutions, fraternities of science and knowledge, and Nobel laureates. These spaces are inhabited by white cis-gender men whose names are constantly repeated which, in turn, builds a litany of word power, speech power, and publishing power.
These men tend to write a lot, but its difficult to imagine them cooking, cleaning, or caring. These White men who write, think, define and translate, ultimately dictate how the world ‘is’.
Lucia Egañas Rojas has a degree in art and has completed a Diploma in Aesthetics and Contemporary Thought, a Master in Creative Documentary and a PHD in Audiovisual Communication. As an artist, she works on collaborative projects, problematising the construction of social imaginary and sources of knowledge. Her projects have been exhibited in many different spaces, museums and institutions. Her creative practices overflow, permeating many different territories such as technology, pedagogy, writing and sexuality. In the educational field, Lucia moves between criticism and emancipatory pedagogies in formal and informal learning contexts.
Her main interests are related to feminism and trans-feminism, methodologies, technology, free software, north-south power relations, colonial and migratory processes, extractivism and error.
