We and others, we are the others

For an identity beyond racism.

In collaboration with Mediterranean Meetings of Procida.

The space of free thought BPER Agorà

The theme of the essay Classify, separate, exclude. Racisms and identity (Einaudi) by Marco Aime is essential to understand how racism, a widespread and insinuating phenomenon, continues to incarnate and does so in increasingly new forms. If it is true that the first gesture of the construction of identity seems to be to draw a line between us and others, it is also true that no one can disregard the relationship and the otherness, and that the universality of human events and feelings has always been sung in literature. So we are the others? A meeting that traces the historical forms of racism and the declinations of contemporary racism, to offer a critical point of view and finally go beyond.
