The word otherness causes goosebumps. The ones that remind us of an unimaginable adventure full of colors, and those that spring up when it suddenly cools down and we look for a quick refuge. Both reactions arise from today’s dichotomy: on one hand, us as global consumers of benefits, and on the other hand, us not letting anything in that could be regarding the other. The anticolonial vision of cross-cultural identities is the main goal of Mutual Otherness. The project has brought conversations with people of different origins with the experience of local space, while transforming their experience into formless movement. This experience then becomes a creative deformation, a process of creation and extinction of forms, but also an event that places forms on the border of visible and invisible, known and unknown, present and absent.
