AbstractA frankly unbreathable atmosphere is becoming our ordinary environment. Everyone feels it: we lack oxygen, health, calm, real connections, justice and joy. Because to breathe you need air, but you also need a whole quality of links, landscapes, futures and metamorphoses.
ObjectiveHow can we fight to detoxify our daily lives, this means also to fraternize in breathing, and to breathe at last with the others? This involves our ways of living in our territories, of thinking about the health of bodies and environments, the atmosphere, work, the city, the house, and even our ways of speaking or dreaming.
ContentA frankly unbreathable atmosphere is becoming our ordinary environment. Everyone feels it: we lack oxygen, health, calm, real connections, justice and joy.
It has almost become our natural condition (the characteristic of intoxicated environments almost everywhere), aggravated by a pandemic that attacks the respiratory system; our political condition too, crossed by violence and discrimination; our psychic condition itself: the breathlessness that comes from our violent tiredness, and from the cost of adjusting to an overheated world.
How can we fight to detoxify our daily lives, this means also to fraternize in breathing, and to breathe at last with the others? This involves our ways of living in our territories, of thinking about the health of bodies and environments, the atmosphere, work, the city, the house, and even our ways of speaking or dreaming.
Because to breathe you need air, but you also need a whole quality of links, landscapes, futures and metamorphoses: many other existences with which to breathe, in which to hope, and which can breathe in you.
