"Doubts about Ableism and Other Questions" is a book that shares a glimpse of my experience as a sister, friend, caregiver, and collaborative artist with individuals with disabilities. It explores the conflicts and joys I encountered along the way. The book particularly delves into my childhood experiences of ignorance, pain, discrimination, and exclusion towards my sister.[+]
I spent a considerable amount of time studying to find appropriate quotes to share with my sister, allowing both of us to expand our understanding of our bodies and sensitivities in light of our experiences. This opened up a beautiful world for us, when we began to explore the concept of "disability" without pity or compassion.
The zine is a compilation of various quotes from body anthropology, speeches by individuals with disabilities, texts on medicine, bodies, education, and philosophy. Additionally, I have translated the text "Teletón: Temple of Ableism" by edu O, Anahí Guedes, and Manoela Back.
