"“en sueurs” takes as its thread the transversal and transcalar notion of sweat: sweating concerns human and non-human agents, on different scales of time and space. It enables us to address ecological and social issues in a non-naïve way, without hiding the dirty and troubled aspects of the living. Paying attention to scorching processes already there, our sweaty approach appeared to be affective, embodied, relational and political."
