There are many ways of being-with-one-another, many ways of sharing a particular time and space. The experience of mutuality generated by these ways of sharing is of public domain and produce relationships between people giving meaning to this interaction. 

SITAC XI will reflect on the notion of community. The word-phrase that entitles this edition comes from the idea developed by French philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy in his book Être singulier pluriel (Being Singular Plural, 1969), and works here as a trigger to approach different relations and associations between social and cultural phenomena, and artistic practices. In general, Nancy’s thinking inscribes within the Twentieth and Twenty-first Century philosophical discussions of the “being”. His essays are devoted to separate ‘singular’ from the individuality, and the politics of being autonomous. According to Nancy, “… The being has no meaning, but the “being itself”, the phenomenon of “being” is meaning that is in turn its own circulation –and we are this circulation.”
