After what? Parallel Histories / ¿Después de qué? Historias Paralelas

After what? Parallel Histories [Historias Paralelas (Parallel Histories)] is a reflection on the dialogue about the way in which common knowledge, experiences and history affect us, taking into account that there is a dichotomy between “official history” and lived history: multiple parallel histories. Guatemala is a fragmented country. Its culture, economy and politics are divided in multiple Guatemalas. These histories and lives probably will never link but still interconnect in the chaos. Every individual action affects the lives of others. We propose to continue this dialogue, contributing to reconciliation as a society, a nation, generating a future pluriculture, a future that is yet to be defined.
