Extremo1 Pero, nuevamente: ¿no es la dislocación una condición diaria y universal para todo mundo en este planeta? ¿No es que estoy sencillamente seleccionando representaciones de la dislocación que descontextualizan, o de cierto modo marginalizan el tema hegemónico de dislocación, que es un tema psicológico y privatizado al nivel del yo singular, con su ilusión […]

Simultaneously Familiar & Unrecognizable: Ben Fama, Johannes Göransson & Sarah Gerard

At Entropy, Christopher Higgs reviews three “new notable books” by authors Ben Fama, Johannes Göransson, and Sarah Gerard. Higgs uses a screenshot-Tweet from Iggy Azalea as an epigraph! This makes sense. Later, he writes: All three are very much timely, relevant, and compelling. But they’re also something else. Something like Aidan Baker & Tim Hecker’s […]

Entidades Los Angeles, California. Febrero 18, 2015. Perdidamente, estoy pensando1 en la entidad como una alternativa a la identidad. Algo subterráneo, bajo la identidad; algo aéreo, sobrevolando más allá de la identidad. ¿Un aire? ¿O una sustancia? Otro cuerpo más allá del cuerpo categorizado. Una manera de ser, o de no-ser.
