Constructing collective maps for transformation
To research is to refuse to be satisfied with what we already know, because probably we don’t actually know it as fully as we think: there are always things that shift and facets we haven’t perceived. To research is to collectively draw maps that serve to situate us and to situate our political undertakings. It means using—with both rigor and flexibility—various methodologies that help us comprehend what we need to be looking at and—above all—to see those things that have been obscured because their invisibility is useful to the unsustainable and unjust systems we aspire to change.
In XXK we participate in research processes with the intention that these form part of broader strategies of action and impact. We like to think of research as a tool at the service of processes and subjects that seek to transform reality, working towards greater wellbeing and the construction of positive ways of being together.
