The first leg of the project Uniformity-Animality is a research journey to Guatemala and El Salvador. The project is lead by artist Per Huttner and fashion designer Emilia Rota. Together they will reflect on how dialogues between our rational selves and other potential and existing selves can or could co-exist. It is a journey into sexuality, power, patterns of the dominated and the dominating as well as how expressions of fear seep out in our everyday existence. The project takes its starting point from the idea in Mayan Cosmology that our beings are made up of three interconnected selves: the waking self, the sleeping self and the animal self. The participants will meet representatives of current Mayan society and how it expresses itself in.
