Holobiontes, simbiontes y otras sutilezas – Genealogía tra(n)shumante de bichos de compañía (Holobionts, Symbionts and Other Subtleties – Tra(n)shumant Genealogy of Companion Bugs)
A speculative exercise that travels through our transoceanic genealogies, exiled and migrated between Abya Yala and Europe, so as to recognise ourselves among companion bugs. It develops from a transdisciplinary, transfeminist and anticolonial perspective in multiple formats and critically returns to methodologies from biology and anthropology. Genealogy is a journey through five of our generations, but what we are going to recount are the lives of the bugs that accompany people. Who are these companion bugs? Living beings from all kingdoms: bacteria, fungi, plants and symbiotic beings, among others. Bugs journeying in the body of the human animal and on the objects we carry, travelling in the air or with other non-human animals, fermenting bread or the food we eat.
