On The Exercise Of Authorship Power In Intercultural Contexts

The experience of intercultural work in the quilombola community, in Sertão of Pernambuco (Brazil), has allowed the group of artists who develop a collaborative work of art education to question the exercise of subliminal power that the status of artist confers to these protagonists.
More than sixteen years of collaborative work in the quilombola community of Conceição das Crioulas allow us to look at the way of political and artistic relationship of the group of artists who regularly go there.
Inherent to the artistic act is the self-legitimation of the performance conferred by the artist’s status as an author. This possibility of internal legitimation is assumed, in the intercultural terrain of educational relationship as an exercise of power, nourished by the know-how and know-think of art, ‘specialized’ fields that isolate themselves from common knowledge.
Understanding the educational work in general and in particular inside intercultural contexts as a non-authoritarian terrain, but as a space to promote the construction of the subjects, it is considered that the actors are required to suspend their power to establish a horizontal relationship of hearing, listening, of freedom for the exercise of the artistic.
It is intended, therefore, not to establish a one-way teaching relationship but a space where everyone, including the artists who are present, carry out their learning, valuing all the knowledge and flavors present.
