FALCONI, Fernando. Creative and aesthetic resistors of protest: about actions and activisms in the public space from social and community contexts. Índex [online]. 2019, n.8, pp.202-209. ISSN 2477-9199.

This article consists of a review of various manifestations, gestures and actions from civil society in general, and from indigenous sectors and communities in Ecuador and Mexico in particular, linked to social protest in the public space. I make a contextual study of these protests, as well as the creative, aesthetic and poetic of them. I am interested in dialogues, relationships and tensions that may have with activism, artivism and art, both in its background and in its form, as well as its visibility and impact on society in general. The struggle for human rights and those of nature, or protests against racism, the abuse of power of a system or the exploitation of resources, are elements of mobilization of these sectors that develop creative strategies and policies linked to the staging of the body in space, and in most of the cases analyzed, with an ancestrality and rituality from indigenous cosmovisions. In that sense, they are linked to a Philosophy, Ethics and Aesthetics of Liberation.

Palabras clave : protest; rights; aesthetics; indigenous; civil society.
