The authors are distinguished thinkers and doers such as artists, curators, art critics as well as scholars in the social sciences and the humanities, agents of growing global networks which are building communities based on love instead of on competitiveness, liberating aesthesis from the prison house of modern aesthetics while healing colonial wounds inflicted by racism and sexism, nationally and globally.  This book presents the first Spanish translations of two iconic Pan-African thinkers, Erna Brodber (Jamaica), and Fatima El Tayeb, (Germany). It is published by Ediciones del Signo, in Buenos Aires, in a collection entitled El Desprendimiento (Delinking) initiated and directed by Walter Mignolo which promotes decolonial delinking in all spheres of life (economic, political, artistic/aesthetic, spirituality/religion, racism/sexism, knowing/understanding). Launched in 2000, the monographic series entered in its second cycle in 2014, under the editorial vision and energy of Malena Pestellini.
