On Dicta 2

The main focus in Dicta 2 is the concept of safewords, which are a way of reducing or stopping violent protocols. Dicta 2 dwells on the blunt and colorful set of meanings that differentiate the actual meaning of the safeword itself from the violent protocol it is intended to suspend. It takes this concept to form its own linguistic structure, upon which further poetical, political and relational layers are formed. Dicta 2 investigates language as a tool of oppression and control.
