I’m Going To Tell You About My Life is a performative action conceived by Spanish artist Esther Ferrer. The piece brings together a group of volunteer signers and non-signers, speaking in sign language and in various spoken languages, who introduce themselves to an audience.

Taking a different meaning each time it’s performed, the piece advocates for a pluralist society by presenting language as a palpable manifestation of diversity. “The less languages we are able to speak,” believes Ferrer, “the easier it will be to impose a single way of thinking”.
