“CONFINEMENTS. A Corrosive Evaluation”

[Discourses _ Conversations_Performances. Demosthenes Agrafiotis, Alipio Carvalho Neto, Dimitrios Trikas ]

With the closure of the events/activities: “Confinements”  questions arise regarding the principles and procedures of the overall organization, the degree of satisfaction of the multiple expectations, the fruitful or not co-articulation of diachronicity and synchronicity in the understanding of extreme social situations (madness, asylum, surveillance, violence) and for the t(r)topological limits in the connections of the arts with exclusions and confinements.
