David Yubraham Sánchez pasado por el trazo de Violeta Ospina

David Yubraham Sánchez (b. Managua, 1980) is a Nicaraguan-born, Barcelona-based cultural manger and mediator. His various forays into and out of academia and the residue of his readings and frustrations have left him with a strong sense of being, above all, in transit. Perhaps that’s why David himself describes his current mediation practice as a “mechanism for transmission” of people with situated initiatives, views, and knowledge that are inconvenient to the hegemony of Western culture.

In this podcast, David Yubraham Sánchez expands on critical thoughts formulated in educational spaces, in constant conversation with others—an exercise in examining racist and colonial patterns in order to dismantle fictitious equivalences in the name of diversity. Thinking-by-doing—with collective work as his main methodology—gives rise to a profusion of tips, strategies and objectives to guide the work of anti-racist mediation, education, and cultural programming. This involves problematising the hollowing out of rights and cultural policies, identifying absences and erasures in democratic memory and national heritage, and implementing the political practice of listening.   

Conversation: Violeta Ospina and Anna Ramos. Script and sound production: Violeta Ospina. Voice over: Violeta Ospina. Sounds: RWM Working Group from the collective library "Bodily sounds".
