Hélio Oiticica’s Parangolés: Nomadic experience in endless motion

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


We tend to define diaspora cultures as nomadic and migrant, products of con­ stant movement, of living in the “between,” of seeing the world from an inside/outside perspective. The duality of the nomadic experience, how­ ever, according to Gilles Deleuze, does not necessarily involve geographic displacement: Some voyages take place in situ, are trips in intensity. Even historically, nomads are not necessarily those who move about like migrants. On the contrary, they do not move; they stay in the same place and continually evade the codes of settled people.
