Points of View


In every cooperation project, different points of view come together: opinions, interpretations and perspectives, which are formed through lifeworlds, socialisation and individual experiences. 


Through adopting alternative points of view, we make new discoveries and rediscover familiar phenomena differently. Thereby, new insights are generated and provide a more nuanced view of reality. Getting involved with other points of view means questioning one’s own. 


There is a vision behind our points of view concept: the exclusive interpretative authority of the European modernity perspective should be rejected and instead different perspectives and voices should coalesce. Multiperspectivity and plurivocality are required.
