Review on "Arts in the Margins of World Encounters"
Congratulations to Willemijn de Jong, Eriko Aoki and John Clammer, the editors of the book "Arts in the Margins of World Encounters," for receiving a review from Paola von Wyss-Giacosa appearing in 'Anthropos,' 118.2023.1. (pp. 226-228):
All chapters in the volume demonstrate the epistemological relevance of the idea of “margins,” be it by asking where they are to be located, who determines or redetermines them, or whether a particular attention to them may transform them, their aesthetics and potential, their strength and power, which should not be underestimated. Margins, or peripheries, however conceived, may be described as a zone for demarcation, for transgression, for resistance, as dynamic spaces highlighting– if by contrasting and challenging them – conventions and norms. Precisely because they can be constructed and indeed are constructed, and this by different actors with different agendas, “margins” can open thinking spaces.
