How can we deploy our interventions in situated contexts, ensuring our well-being in the process and their potential to investigate and communicate horizontally with one's own and the surrounding reality?
Looking at ourselves, thinking and talking “in an acceptable way” combines a threefold problematisation: ethical, political and methodological. To work in an acceptable way demands that we think about the conditions of that work. Four lines of work are proposed:
• “If we remember”: Start from previous experiences, both successful and unsuccessful, our own or those of others; registering, contrasting and questioning what did (not) happen.
• “If we stop”: To actively question productivism by boycotting its rhythms and rules. And to do this, examine the realms of rest, games and the useless.
• “If we multiply”: To specifically break from the idea that we all, or at least many of us, make up one unit, to emphasize the existence of different starting points, trajectories and perspectives.
• “If we were bodies”: To dis-abstract rational, administrative and instrumental logic, and to focus on the situated dynamics of bodies and their affections.
