Carnaval

Cos i ritual en l'art contemporani

“Carnival in our sense [Left Cultural Critique] is more than a party or festival; it is the
oppositional culture of the oppressed, the official world as seen from below; not the mere disruption of etiquette but the symbolic, anticipatory overthrow of oppressive social structures. On the positive side, it is ecstatic collectivity, the joyful affirmation of change, a dress rehearsal for utopia. On the negative, critical side, it is a demystifying instrument for everything in the social formation that renders collectivity impossible: class hierarchy, sexual repression, patriarchy, dogmatism, and paranoia”

Com definir el carnaval, el fet carnavalesc? Potser com un espai de llibertat respecte les normes establertes, on el cos es pot transfigurar, i deixar-se portar per l'energia de la festa. Un espai d'iniciació i transformació, alhora creatiu i proteic.
