Privileged Senses: An Intersubjective Anthropological Study of Body Senses’ Education on Bogota’s Upper Class.” Photographic and Video Installation.  Colombia.

Priviledged Senses was an experimental project that combined visual anthropology methods, ethnography, and self-ethnography with portrait production in analog photography. Traditional anthropology subjects became here active producers of the audiovisual outcome of this project, of which main objective was inquiry about body senses education in Bogota’s upper class education. The performative anthropological experience allowed us to stage six portraits that represent power legitimacy and body senses education in this specific context. It is the result of a very collaborative process whose formal structure pretends to counter balance the sociocultural structure that studies and represents.
