Léxico Familiar transforms the all-encompassing intent behind the idea of a “dictionary” into a more modest attempt to compile a few elements of the “family lexicon” that constitutes the language of the new movements. As per Heinrich von Kleist's idea of gradual production of thoughts whilst speaking, this vocabulary is revealed through the course of the conversation, framing and editing, which literally seek to show how thought is embodied. Just as political concepts that lead to dynamics of change (which can be appropriated by other subjects, and which circulate so as to be verified through different practices) don't arise through isolated gestures or thought ex nihilo, but from actual experiences and specific bodies and struggles.
