“I'm fascinated with the difference between supposedly private and supposedly public and I try to engage with the issue of what it means to live in a society that's seemingly shock-proof, yet still is compelled to exercise secrecy.”
Barbara Kruger

WILL YOU MARRY ME? è una conferenza pubblica temporanea, il cui contenuto esplora alcune pratiche illegali presenti nella nostra quotidianità, e il modo in cui le si incorpora o se ne fa esperienza sulla propria pelle. Il testo parte da esperienze personali e condivise, raccolte tra Prato, Ramallah, Marsiglia, Madrid e Nyon, ed evoca alcune strategie e pratiche di disobbedienza usate da attivist* in diverse zone del mondo, per aggirare la legge senza trasgredirla, nel momento in cui questa lede al diritto. Partendo dal presupposto che la legge sia un parametro fluido, che cambia a seconda del contesto, del periodo storico e dei privilegi di cui godiamo, essa definisce ciò che è considerato morale, lecito, in altre parole, giusto. Distribuisce il potere e la percezione del potere nella società, definendo, normalizzando, dividendo e controllando. Concentrandosi sulla relazione tra illegalità e spazio pubblico, la conferenza invita a relazionandosi su questo bordo tra legale e non legale. Esplora come poter agire la disobbedienza sotto gli occhi di tutt*, per suggerire possibili forme di complicità e resistenza.

WILL YOU MARRY ME? is a site-specific and temporary public lecture. The content of the lecture explores some illegal practices present in our daily life and how we embody illegality itself. It comes from personal shared experiences collected between Prato, Ramallah, Marsiglia, Madrid and Nyon and it echoes some strategies and disobedient practices used by activists from all around the world as forms to circumvent the law without violating it, whenever these affects people’s rights. The lecture invites to relate with the boundaries between what is legal and what is illegal. Considering the assumption that the law is a fluid parameter, which changes depending on where we are in the world, the historical period in which we live and the sort of privileges we enjoy, the law defines what is considered moral, licit, in other words, what is right. It distributes power and the perception of power in society, defining, categorizing, dividing and controlling. The shape of the lecture itself investigates a specific portion of the spectrum of illegality, namely the relationship between illegal acts and public space. It explores how can we act disobedience before everyone’s eyes, suggesting possible forms of complicity and public resistance.
