The Apatride Society of the Political Others: Introduction to the Society of the Indigenous
with Max Jorge Hinderer Cruz, Nelli Kampouri, and Margarita Tsomou

Konstantinos Doumpenidis, Escape Route, 2015

By establishing the notion of ithageneia (the Greek word for “indigenous”) as a condition, The Apatride Society tries to go beyond a Eurocentric perspective, while encouraging the observation of the shifting forms and territories of contemporary colonialities and new imperatives in the production of global and local subjectivities. The Apatride Society aspires to become a forum for debate, addressing how political Otherness (including the conditions of migration, precarity, dispossession, and statelessness as well as political, racial and sexual minorities) can be articulated today through occupations, resistance, and acts of citizenship.

Max Jorge Hinderer Cruz is a Bolivian-German writer, editor, and philosopher specializing in materialist aesthetics, colonial economy, and the history of Latin American art. Since 2014 he has been a founding member of São Paulo’s Seminário Público Micropolíticas and cocoordinator of P.A.C.A. (Program for Autonomous Cultural Action).
