Could we create an instruction manual to give a conference? Is there a narrative that precedes the creation of any speech? In this section, a philosopher in another country designs a series of instructions for a conference that will be held in Argentina. These instructions draw up a sort of dramaturgy that proposes several steps to follow in order to approach any subject. So, three local speakers, specialists that come from different backgrounds, carry out their talk by following the rules of this singular manual.
About Paul B. Preciado’s manual
The conferences are written and performed following an instruction manual which was crafted by Paul B. Preciado, who, by intentionally increasing or decreasing the presence of linguistic marks and cultural codes behind gender production, aimed to enhance the cognitive emancipation of the audience/spectator. The question veers towards the onlooker and the listener: why repeat the gender which has allegedly been assigned to me?, would it be possible to introduce variables of change?, does the world change if I change gender?
