Co-sensing with Radical Tenderness is a text Dani d’Emilia and Vanessa Andreotti began to write in 2018, based on thoughts expressed by the collective Gesturing Towards Decolonial Futures [GTDF]. Initially called “An Invitation to Radical Tenderness”, this text has been shape-shifting alongside their artistic-pedagogic collaboration “Engaged Dis-identification”, which attempts to translate post-representational modes of engagement into embodied experiments that reconfigure the connections between reason, affect and relationality. The current version of the text has been revised in June 2020. More information on GTDF here: www.decolonialfutures.net
Each copy of “Co-sensing with Radical Tenderness” is intended to be printed on re-used paper, making each copy unique. A portuguese version of the booklet is available from Publication Studio.
