Building on her book “Choosing the Margin as a Space of Radical Openness,” author Bell Hooks identifies the margin as a space of resistance. She writes that the margin is “much more than a site of deprivation…it is also the site of radical possibility”… “a central place for the production of a counter-hegemonic discourse that is found not only in words, but in habits of being and living.”
We will try to make a mapping through the medium of photography, through micro-stories, micro-narratives, fictional or not, where we will try to convey your story and your points of view.
