Untranslatable Terms Of Cultural Practices - Shared Vocabulary
Publisher: Archive Books
Untranslatable proposes a new vocabulary of terms that remain untranslated in their original language. These are words that convey cultural practices, attitudes and value systems and are explained from their respective language and word canon. Terms are presented that broaden perspectives, facilitate new perspectives, and thus enrich collective thinking as a global community. The "Shared Vocabulary" presents an expanded cultural and etymological understanding of the world and our cultural actions.
