The art of homotranssexual life in Damata related to the history of the aphrodisías




Interdiction of Genres. Freedom in Living Practices. Worlds that Intertwine.


The uniqueness of the subjects' way of life, in the device of sexuality in Damata's work in the middle of the military dictatorship where the main territory is the city of Rio de Janeiro, with the experiences of the people linked to the Brazilian Navy, brings up the issue of homosexuality of this class in particular, at different times of their lives and in regards of the preference for being active or passive, which without mention in the work, makes the question of gender arise. This issue goes back to the fact that over 6,000 years ago, the theme was approached as a social, political and moral lifestyle in antiquity and that it is transformed and has contours of interdiction in the Christian era and in moments that passed society over time as in the Dictatorship and in regimes of exception. The purpose of the work when analyzing the body's relations with questions of morality and attributes of passage from one stage of life to another, time opens up that the issue of sexuality is still today a form of interdiction where the subject abdicates his life to live a way of life that the other imposes on him, being issues to be resolved and that Ancient knowledge can be used so that the different genres that are not binary can win, fight and resist, transforming their finite modes of existence in life as their own master.
