AESTHETIC EXPERIENCE, SHARED PRODUCTION OF KNOWLEDGE AND POST-HUMANISM: THE MURAL ART ON KAINGANG LAND

August 12, 2019

Abstract

The aim of this project is to create a real and/or virtual mural composition as a collective aesthetic experience with the Kaingang indigenous group from Palmas (PR). The production of scientific knowledge is put into question in a sense of reviewing the forms in which the Western, white and European world represented and represents the other/Other equal to me and different than me. The form the aesthetic experience (Dewey, 1980; Gadamer, 1999; Heidegger, 2000) can influence the meaning and the production of artistic "representation" or "presentation" of the indigenous ethnicity on the mural made by the Kaingang themselves is examined. From the production methodology shared by knowledge (Bairon, Lazaneo, 2012; Bairon, Batistella, Lazaneo, 2017; Lazaneo, 2012), the indigenous people do not distinguish themselves as research objects, but as research subjects. Such integration is made under the post-human idea of situated inclusivism (Ferrando, 2013; Braidotti, 2013), related to the symbolic cultural changes in which the collective and individual dimensions can be combined without cultural losses.

Key-words: Mural. Kaingang. Aesthetic Experience. Shared production of knowledge. Post-humanism.
