Art and Craft Lectures: Liisa-Rávná Finbog: The Language of Kinship - duodji, aesthetics and practice
In this lecture, Liisa-Rávná Finbog (University of Oslo) will discuss the language of kinship within the context of duodji and Sámi aesthetic practices, and the importance of Sámi paradigms and analytical tools when engaging with processes and expressions of Sámi Indigenous identity and sovereignty.
The language of kinship–the act of making your relations kin–is a basic principle in many Indigenous philosophies, expressing that the world is made up of an infinite web of relationships that expand beyond the humanocentric; generating ties that apply to everyone and everything, to things and objects, to land, to waters and other-than-human beings. Indigenous knowledge systems [epistemologies] and concepts [methodologies] materialize from this system of kin as ways of being, knowing and doing. In this lecture, Finbog will be discussing the importance of Sámi paradigms and analytical tools when engaging with processes and expressions of Sámi Indigenous identity and sovereignty within the context of duodji and Sámi aesthetic practices.
