Doxa

This body of work is inspired by Stuart Hall’s research and Pierre Bourdieu’s essay Forms of Capital. Pierre Bourdieu, in his Outline of a Theory of Practice, used the term “doxa” to denote what is taken for granted in any particular society. The doxa, in his view, is the experience by which “the natural and social world appears as self-evident”. That which “goes without saying because it comes without saying.”
