think twice: power-full language
understanding powerstructures through discourse
Think Twice launches today. we are a collective of researchers, professionals and thinkers focusing on critical of contemporary issues in the still colonial contemporary academia and beyond. the collective works both as a news outlet and as publishing platform for critical essays. to encourage the proposition of fresh ideas, Think Twice has a yearly focus on specific topics, for which a yearly call for papers is published. a selection of these papers will be published on our platform.
the inaugural provocation of Think Twice addresses Language as a tool used in the construct of power in contemporary cultural discourse. the power of language is often explicit in the language of power, in canonized statements reflecting how society was shaped throughout the years.
by changing language, can we change the constructs of power? how can art translate language as an alternative discourse?
power-full language open debate proposed by Think Twice includes a series of actions taking place at the end of 2019 combining theory and practice through social participation and interaction. the group’s online platform, to be launched soon, will work as a channel through which interaction occurs and memory is documented. the laboratory of thought or provocations aims at bringing to life different topics analyzing language and power through the lenses of broader domains such as philosophy, literature, cultural history, contemporary art, etc. pro-creation materializes the discussion initiated by the laboratory of thought in the form of a symposium + workshop + public artistic intervention in which social engagement is the key factor.
we want to find new ways to understand culture, and we want them now.
