The main authors on the theoric grid are Peter Sloterdijk (1993, 2000), Giorgio Agamben (2006, 2009), Slavoj Zizek (2003, 2010), Christine Greiner and Helena Katz (2005, 2010) and Lakoff and Johnson (1980, 1999, 2002). The metodology includes, beside the theoretical research, a videographic research that discusses the creation of a new kind of text, a new audiovisual writing, that internalizes in its production the nature of the research to be documented, that is, the underground histories that never end, even when burried and banished to invisibility.
