Boaventura de Sousa Santos – Spaces of Transformation: Epistemologies of the South at Tate

Boaventura de Sousa Santos at Tate Modern, London 28 April 2012.

Video in English.

Topic:  Spaces of Transformation: Epistemologies of the South

This video is part of a panel that explores counter-hegemonic transnational networks, global voices and cartographic practices that map the abyssal line between epistemologies of the North and the South. Reinventing social emancipation opens the processes of democracy to heterogeneous outside, de-territorialising universal topoi and spaces of power. These emancipatory processes are expressed in the struggles for participatory democracy manifest in the Arab Spring, the growing occupation movement and the landless workers movements. Another form of knowledge is possible.
