MEDITERRANEAN AND TRANSATLANTIC ARTIVISM. COUNTER-ACTING NEO-COLONIALISMS IN THE PUBLIC SPHERE by Paola Zaccaria

Starting from a geo-political, geo-critical and intermedial reflection on the proliferation of walls and its effects on resident and migrant populations, the essay articulates the proposal of a dialogue shaped by the African American pattern of call-and-response which, by jamming Eurocentric theories / analysis and post-colonial, diasporic, creolized practices/theories/aesthetics, could hopefully contribute to a change in the public sphere of cultures touched by the so-called Middle Passage. The dialogue, inspired also by ARTivist thinking and poetics, should be able to envisage a transcultural MediterrAtlantic methodology opening up transcultural no-border wall horizons counter-acting neocolonial, anti-migratory drives.
Brief case study: the genealogical un-walled geo-corpo-graphies narrated by the African Caribbean Canadian writer Dionne Brand.
