On October 18, 2019, the Chilean people woke up and took to the streets to claim for 30 years of injustices and for profound changes to recover their dignity. The posters of this revolution begin to circulate around the world. Artists who have chosen anonymity to work today are mobilized for a change, printing and pasting their work in the streets of Chile. Today in our country printing is resisting.

Two chains of portraits that are read in the opposite direction; on the one hand, famous Mexicans who flood the press with their faces; on the other, portraits taken at random of countless disappeared in Mexico that flood their posters, posts and street walls. It seems that some are made to make others invisible.

Colorless Green Ideas Sleep Furiously

Jerónimo Rüedi
artist's book

You make rock candy by supersaturating boiling water with sugar, dropping a string into it, and letting it cool. This is what Jerónimo Rüedi (known best as a painter) has done in his books, but by dropping his mind into our world supersaturated with images and information. And instead of candy we get something sweeter than those crystals of pure sugar: books that —in how they shit on false prophets; in how they weaponize dark humor against globalism’s fatally accelerating greed; in how they damn the very foundations of how we make sense of our world— remind us to ground our lives in the parts of the world that haven’t been sold off yet, that still, in the face of it all, prioritize real attention. Colorless Green Ideas Sleep Furiously is a primer on how to break apart the platitudes of one’s time in order to piece them together again in a radically new vision, based on personal convictions rather than passive consumption. Whether you’re Steve Jobs or Aristotle, sleep with one eye open: you’re not making the sense you think you are.

Mother, We All Have Been Lonely and Lovely Places serves as a trajectory of personal history, narrating the various stages of female dependency in a patriarchal landscape. As the book intimately examines emotional and sexual behavioral patterns of relationships that (re)formulate in accordance to the inevitable process of aging, its readers not only witness adopted gender performativities within society, but gradually begin to notice the universal longing to unearth purpose in hopes of outgrowing human loneliness.

Tercera persona

Verónica Gerber Bicecci
artist's book
narrative

Written in braille, Tercera Persona is a discussion that takes place between ‘him’ and ‘her.’ The reader witnesses a conversation of misunderstandings, the impossibility that is communication and everything quotidian.

Veronica Gerber Bicecci (MexicoCity, 1980) reduces language into a less complex framework, so everything we cannot understand — but that which haunts us everyday — becomes again what it actually is and always was.

"Since the early 2000s, I have been making daily photographs with digital cameras. Each day this archive of digital files would grow bigger. I had no intention to exhibit these.
In 2018, in a culture over-inundated and amassed with photographs (mostly digital) and with eroded attention spans, I decided to start erasing my photo archive. This erasure became an art-work I titled it NOSTALGIA. The passages in this book are descriptions of a selection of digital photographs that have
been deleted."

PHOTOGRAPHY

The photographs in this book are part of the photographer Alberto Flores Varela's archive and most of them were taken at the request of the Cuahtémoc y Famosa Society, an institution created in 1918 by Cervecería Cuauhtémoc, founder of the modern Monterrey. It should be remembered that the context of those years was one of revolution. The business elite was totally threatened by the addition of labor rights contained in the new constitution of 1917, and which included the right to strike.

Reunion are various acts that involve conversing, reading and writing; quotidian yet strange acts that always implicate being next to one another. Zelko writes down poems that others dictate to him. After completing his homework of how to listen and how to write, he edits the books within the next coming days. In a round of nine people, the writings are presented to the author’s neighbors, friends, and family. The writer reads his poems; he listens to himself while he is being heard by others.

The second part of the project consists of an extension of the first project, in other places. In a round of nine chairs, the writer’s poems are read by spokespeople, emissaries who lend their bodies, eyes and voices. It is a chain of situations and encounters: subjects dictating and reading, reading and writing; books and poems. All these are actions and proceedings in order to be together.

This edition, titled North Border, was realized between September 2017 and October 2018, taking place in Mexico, USA, and Canada (Tijuana, Veracruz, Texas, Florida, New York, Princeton and Toronto). The cover’s photograph was taken just before the presentation of Maritza’s book. Maritza read her poems aloud to her caravan friends. Then they gave away some books to people who passed by, and walked to the USA in order to seek political asylum.

MANIFESTO

Buildings are not empty containers awaiting their inhabitants. They are composed of a large and ever-changing array of objects. During construction, prioritizing certain objects — like walls, floors, roofs, etc. — limits appropriation itself. In order to increase the opportunities of appropriation, objects that are traditionally dealt with by architects to encompass the possibility of object — such as a wall, sink, chair —would need to be augmented.

performance

In a landscape where the technologies governing our lives are increasingly obscured, this publication aims to reveal the underlying processes of a machine learning program. It seeks to mediate the “gaze” of the machine and human comprehension. The book documents the technical capabilities of an algorithm trained to analyze the formal patterns of the alphabet while it imagines other letters from that knowledge.

The resulting outputs — letters without semantic value — embraces and emphasizes the meaningless results of the machine: it is the human input and framework that imbues “sense” to these forms. Combining expository exercises with surreal typographic characters, Latent Space: Notes on Seeing Letters Like a Machine is a grounding text on the mechanics of machine learning and a visual celebration of formal possibility.

Domestic Orbits is a speculative essay that explores how the domestic space is configured around orbits of exclusion that shape the trajectories of domestic workers. How is the space articulated according to gender, class, or race? Organized through a series of case-studies that range from 1950s until today’s Mexico City, the book looks at the different scales in which domestic labor gets erased by architects and planners.

It reads the architectural plans of five well-known projects, giving a perspective that aims to highlight social and economical relationships. Domestic Orbits sketches a counter-history of modern architecture, questioning the duality that exists between the visible and invisible — those who count, and those who don’t.

When I had my daughter, I asked my boss if she could live with me and she said no because the house isn’t big enough. The room we sleep in is very small, so I haven’t been lucky enough to live with her.

News: 3 The Radical Ally

Bouchra Khalili

poetry

In 1984, when Jean Genet was preparing the edition of his most important articles, he chose to start with a text that did not belong with the rest of the collection. The Declared Enemy — which would become the title of Albert Dichy’s reference edition of Genet’s articles and interviews from 1964 to 1986 — was written in Tangiers the same year that Genet was invited to encourage support and bear witness to the repression suffered by the Black Panther Party (1970). Bouchra Khalili’s The Radical Ally is a visual and textual investigation on the work she undertook in Twenty-Two Hours (2018).

She follows Genet’s traces during his stay with the Panthers, and questions what remains of the party’s political memory. Through other important voices, Bouchra interrogates the different layers of history that have engulfed the struggle for liberation to which the characters in her video have committed their lives to. In this publication, we explore the position of the radical ally as the reverse of the declared enemy. To become the radical ally, as Khalili reminds us in her interview with Jackie Wang, Genet had to destroy the white man in him.

It is a form of resistance,
reclaiming history from the power.

Nonverbal is a book of drawings in which animals, everyday objects and parts of the body serve as short narrations that communicate physical sensations without words. Employing a similar economy that is writing, the content considers the lyrical genre, paralinguistics and the overall language of cartoons. Due to such close proximity to literary creation, the drawings are read as poems, jokes or refrains.

In La manzana no espera, the Argentinian poet and artist Ricardo Carreira (1924-1993), member of “Tucumán arde” collective, experiments with the boundaries of words— a space that escapes common language so it may liberate sound; where purpose and image get to be experienced as if it were the very first time; but as well as space that demonstrates a game’s mechanism — the active margin that opens like a semantic whole in-between them.

The line, the lie, and the lice is a book of divination that is governed by one idea: all complex ideas are composed of simple ideas.

Four ideas: error — neither the one or the other, but something much worse.

The book collects unpublished photographs that the American artist Zoe Leonard has taken along the Rio Grande (or Río Bravo) in 2017. As well, it includes commissioned texts by the Mexican poet and activist, Dolores Dorantes, who has been exiled to the UnitedStates for years.
  It is an immersion into the physical context, the actual barrier; the very heart of the border between Mexico and the US: the waters of the Río Bravo or Rio Grande. A number of figures appearing in the water recall something else though: skin, scars, wrinkles, genitals, the writing of an unknown language.
   It is a visual-textual attempt of conversationthat explores the tensions between thesimple, ever-changing but continuously-fluidflow of water, and all the terrible complexitiesaround, above and beneath it.

We were power, or we were once.
The water isn’t an attribute of your
circumstances. Crossing over isn’t
an attribute of your circumstances.

In more than 1400 laconic arguments, the Argentinian Malena Pizani describes an artist’s process of becoming. The statements— lacking verb in each sentiment — depict an artist that is petrified between two moments that for now does neither act, nor do, nor execute, nor intervene. It only thinks of itself, or sees itself through the gaze of the other.

An artist who looks out of the corner of his eye / An artist who looks out of the corner of his eye and also eavesdrops / An artist who looks out of the corner of his eye and makes comments in passing so that everyone else will hear / A mean-spirited artist / A dark energied artist / A dark-energied who has power / A dark-energied artist who has power and distributes it among other dark-energied artists.

For a Collaborative and Interdisciplinary
Lexicon of Cultural Agents

Doris Sommer
manifesto

In this book, Doris Sommer, Director of the Cultural Agents Initiative at Harvard University, proposes an array of semantic neologisms in order to understand the new dynamics of our world that is in constant acceleration; how to create new ideas and new construction tools. It is a double invitation: on the one hand, it develops definitions that articulate an interdisciplinary lexicon. On the other, it suggests missing words. It is vital for the new lexicon’s intuitions to move into public discourse.

Color
Structural element in the Renaissance of Tirana, Albania, Edi Rama.

Common sense
Intersubjective agreement based on aesthetic judgment, Immanuel Kant.

Connectionist
Agent who fosters collaborations, Pedro Reyes.

Constraints, hard and soft

manifesto

In her manifesto, the young Mexican author Gabriela Jauregui thinks about the blood-soaked war of drugs. Simultaneously, she proposes a communal organization, a resistance against individualism and isolation. As a type of game, Jauregui borrows words from other manifestos. The result is a manifesto-remix, unleashing a different and new political potential.

The Combahee River Collective Statement

Combahee River Collective
politics
manifesto

Combahee River Collective, an African-american feminist collective, presents a testimony of the reflective work since the1970s in the United States. The book discusses four major topics: the genesis of contemporary black feminism and the particularity of this very policy; the problems and the history of the collective; the black feminist practice and their issues. As feminists and lesbians, they know that sexual politics under patriarchy is pervasive in black women’s lives, as well as the politics of class and race.

We will discuss four major topics in the paper that follows: (1) the genesis of contemporary Black feminism;(2) what we believe, i.e.,the specific province of our politics; (3) the problems in organizing Black feminists, including a brief her story of our collective; and (4) Black feminist issues and practice.

Untitled Manifesto

Juan Caloca
Manifesto

Starting with the exclamation mark assumes that there is an exit on the other side. Untitled Manifesto asks: what is decomposition made off? In other words, does it take an exclamation mark in order to understand a question is taking form? For example, who can believe in the queries translated by Google? These are not questions without answers, but answers without questions. With his manifesto, the artist Juan Caloca shows how much knowledge we lack, and how little we know in order to imagine.

For the sake of humanity:
Burn this and all manifestos!
To see if someone remembers us
only with the oral memory.

Autoerotism Exercise:

1) Subjects were visited at the location they have chose to take the photographs.

2) The camera was mounted on a tripod and synchronized to work remotely: the camera shot photographs at fixed intervals of time.

3) Subjects were left totally alone with the camera and thus were able to direct, select wardrobe and choose the duration of their sessions. They also had the choice to stop the sequence and restart it as many times as they required.

4) When they were finished, the equipment was recovered.

There are roads leading to secret treasures, inquiring the ultimate philosophical question of our origin and the self. Square by square, word by word, page by page, we are left to solve the riddle and its mystery. Or are the diagrams architectual maps of long forgotten places?

POLITICS

The deliberate use of merchandising strategies in presidential campaigns and governmental communications have in the past decade sought out ways to close the gap between the people and their candidates or government officials. The epitome of such strategies can be found in one section of the official web site of the Mexican presidency entitled “My picture with the President”. Now six years into his devastating presidency, it seems clear that the only thing president Enrique Peña Nieto has been interested in all along was looking his best with his fans.

This confrontation left 8 people dead and over 108 people injured. Specialists concluded in their opinion that most of these deaths were caused by firearms.

This is the diary of a curious, unsettled Athenian. The daily register of an overworked documenta employee. The notes of a bewildered art enthusiast. This is a memoir—a documentary—an anecdote—a flashback. And a dissonant guide to a so-called «hot» city and its residents, as they encountered or reacted to a major art event. All photos and quotes presented in this book were found and collected from documenta 14 press material, exhibition reviews, online blogs, social media, and the streets of Athens and Kassel.

POETRY

"Something is moving beneath the surface of the land. It´s a rabbit digging rapidly a hole along the countryside. The bunny gets out of the hole and opens up a map to check his whereabouts. He says to himself: “Let´s see now. Through Azusa, turn left at Cucamonga… till you hit Los Angeles. The straight out Wilshire Boulevard to the La Brea Tar Pits. I knew I should of taken that left turn at Albuquerque.” It´s a Warner cartoon form the nineteen forties seen once too often in my childhood, dubbed in Spanish. The left turn at Cucamonga, or more precisely, the word Cucamonga scintillated like a strange jewel, pronounced once and again, nonsensical and bombastic. I didn´t know then that it was a valley in San Bernardino. It also explains why it was used in a Warner cartoon. You´re driving down a highway in southern California and you read a sign of the next exit. You read it out loud: “Rancho Cucamonga”, you use it in a Warner cartoon, you used as a title for a concrete poetry book as nonsensical and bombastic as the word. You say the word, you inhabit the word, you make a habit of the word -any word- you choose it at random, then you choose another and another, making a sound pattern that means one thing and the next. Words run along –never moving, never standing still- between content and expression, between Deleuze and Guattari: an abstract machine, an abstract monster, an abstract."

14 195 causas de muerte


politics

Exhaustive list of all causes of death registered by the Ministry of Health of México. Meticulous and exhaustive taxonomy of decease; classified by type, gender, family and circumstance. Instruments usually employed to produce a death certificate, an eloquent part of the bureaucratic codification of life and death, are here subordinated to a different aim. A critical purpose of denunciation in the context of a country, México, where over the last years people disappear by thousands —mainly as victims of necropolitical agents, corruption networks and necroeconomical agents— For these people, a registered cause of death is another stolen Right, and this book is a humble form of vindication and homage.

En Obra it is a graphic memory of Mexico City that portrays the rise and decay of its modernization project until the democratic and citizen awakening through the collection of the Museo Archivo de la Fotografía. What we see here is the material of a little explored, almost unpublished file, which was protected for several decades. In it you can find images that go from the registration of infrastructure works such as water, drainage, paving, and lighting, to the transformation of public markets. It offers a look at reformatories, prisons, hospitals, fire stations, driver education programs and traffic police actions. It also shows many of the symbolic elements of power, its monuments and civic rituals. This book thus constitutes a self-portrait of the State and in it the history of the governments of the city, the birth and evolution of the urban trace intersect with the transformation of the daily life of its inhabitants.

A photo essay about the ecology of evil in contemporary Mexican cities and, by extension, in the cities of the underdeveloped world. A road movie turned into a massive book that portrays the outskirts of Ciudad Juárez, the industrial city bordering the United States, which became one of the most dangerous places in the world. A portrait, maybe not of one of the unintended consequences of the neoliberal globalization project, but perhaps the portrait of the project itself.

Each Muñoz Santini’s image documents in an excellent way the disaster and the extreme of a State of Things: modest houses that are built as a bunker (with windows painted on the walls to evoke another way of life); Constructive projects made beforehand to be abandoned; Ghosts of the victims of feminicide in the evocation of the leaflets that pray for them in the posts; Car graveyards and junk in both degraded art; Desolation of ruins, irons, monuments, tires, bricks that constitute open-air questions that nobody answers.

Henry Osman
artist's book

The proliferation of internet cafes seemed at one time a necessity, however, as they were built, they quickly showed the contradictions that the private use of the internet and the exhibition of being in full view posed. Henry Osman, a young American writer, was surprised by this activity that still exists in Mexico, which has a certain connection with the public desks of yesterday.

Andrea García Flores
artist's book

Intrusive thoughts are unwanted, involuntary thoughts, unpleasant images or ideas that can become obsessions that are difficult to manage or eliminate. The life plant cycle starts all over again is a two-voiced reading exercise where these thoughts are interrupted, meet, disappear and at the same time desperately seek meaning. Life, death and what's left in between. With illustrations by Andrea García Flores.

research

Criminal process of the Holy Office of the Inquisition, against Don Carlos, main Indian of Tezcuco. Historical document written just eighteen years after the conquest of Tenochtitlán, in which the grandson of Netzahualcóyotl addresses the newly born nobles of New Spain as if they were macehuales, among other important things.

En 1539, 18 años después de la destrucción de México y en el mismo año que llegó la primera imprenta, fue juzgado por idolatría Don Carlos, cacique de Tezcoco, hijo de Netzahualpilli y nieto de Netzahualcoyotl. El juicio que presentamos le costó a la Santa Inquisición, por orden de la corte imperial de Carlos V, la expulsión temporal de México durante el siglo xvi. ¿Qué fué lo que tanto le molestó al primer obispo de la Ciudad de México e inquisidor apostólico, Fray Juan de Zumárraga? ¿la idolatría del acusado o su rebeldía frente a la iglesia? ¿y cuál era la prisa por dictaminar un juicio sin darle una nueva oportunidad de defensa?

Cuando el tren se detuvo, las interminables separaciones que habían comenzado en esa estación llegarón ahí mismo a su fin en el momento en que los brazos se envolvían, con ansia desbordante, los cuerpos que ya habían olvidado. Rambert no tuvo tiempo de mirar la forma que corriendo hacía él caía sobre su pecho. Sujetándola con fuerza, estrechó una cabeza de la que solamente veía los rizos tan conocidos; lloró sin saber si las lágrimas caían por la felicidad presente o por el dolor tanto tiempo reprimido, seguro, al menos, de que ellas le impedirían comprobar si la cara oculta en el hueco de su hombro era la de aquella con la que tanto tiempo había soñado, o, al contrario, la de una extraña.

With The Book of Pleasures, Vaneigem puts before himself, by means of the notion of pleasure, the old idea that usury destroys man and, from joy, builds a devastating text of our society erected at the opposite extreme. This essay shows a much more propositional side of situationism, which is dissipated by means of a less judgmental style before an a priori: pleasure.

Intense pleasure means the end of exchange in all forms

María Sabina is an art book that consists of three parts: the photographic series that Gusmano Cesaretti made in 1982 during his ten-day stay at the curandera's house; a testimony in which he narrates his experience with entheogens known as holy children and a selection of photographs from said series intervened by the artist that convey aspects of an experience that is difficult to communicate with words. In this account, the rich images of the Italian photographer help to fill empty spaces in the myth of the wise old woman.

"I am like an waiting apple." In this indolent tone, Kayal Ahmal recalls the history of her wandering nation, which she compares to Adam before Eve's arrival. The memory of the Kurds, in his opinion, is rocky, it seems to have never begun; However, she talks about what a woman, in the midst of a history of spoil and massacre, feels; feels after giving birth, after falling in love or in the middle of a divorce, to be able to think of something different.

In Marea de tormentas Shirko Birkas builds a world where the pagan elements of nature are desired, pursued and seduced, while men contemplate their objects and remember that life begins and ends on earth: the rest is a testament .

Si quitas las flores de mis poemas, una de mis cuatro estaciones morirá.

8ez Steps

Gusmano Cesaretti
PHOTOGRAPHY

8ez Steps by renowned artist and photographer Gusmano Cesaretti, is a reprint of a book he originally published in 1972 with Art Povera, LA Photo Book. In the style of the conceptual works of the seventies, this work takes as its pretext the process of depilation told in eight steps to reflect on the relationship between man and his tools.

By creating a series of eight images that reveal a progression in time (six photos of the mons veneris of the model from the moments prior to shaving to fully shaven, and two photos of the instruments used: shaving brush, razors, and scissors) Cesaretti’s sequence generates a forward temporal movement in its successive depiction of stages of a process.

Why did you shoot me? it is a sculpture in the strictest sense of the term. A solid question impacted by the firing of a medium caliber weapon. It is, perhaps, a hard and forceful statement about fear and about the loss of the freedom to ask, to know. It is a book about the vulnerability of the book itself and the possibility
–nullified– of being replicated.

The Praise of Laziness

Mladen Stilinovic
essay

Mladen Stilinovic is one of the most notable Croatian artists of the second half of the 20th century. Actions, photographs, drawings, installations, sculptures, objects, groups, texts and meetings are part of the repertoire of his work. In this short text, The Praise of Laziness, which is nothing more than a minimal sample of his anti-systemic, revolutionary and political-aesthetic legacy, Stilinovic leaves us a manifesto-reflection on laziness and the universal right to it, as a form creative, revolutionary and anti-capitalist. A text that many contemporary artists–given heart and soul and credits to excessive productivity and efficiency– should have in mind before continuing on their stubborn path to well-behaved success.

Laziness is the absence of movement and thought, dumb time - total amnesia. It is also indifference, staring at nothing, non-activity, impotence. It is sheer stupidity, a time of pain, futile concentration. Those virtues of laziness are important factors in art.

Perhaps Liz Mevill is very angry, perhaps Cioran realized too late how terrible her affiliation with Nazism and nationalism, but the fact is that this compendium of portraits of enraged, rabid and almost diabolical Chihuahuas puppies, paired with sentences of the philosopher of the Carpathians, translated into Albanian, results in...

Ornament and Crime

Adolf Loos
essay
architecture

Adolf Loos proposes in this sharp and critical (sometimes a bit totalitarian) discourse a return to simplicity, to the essence, to the elemental form and function of design and architecture, against the ornamental excesses of Art Nouveau.

Even greater is the damage done by ornament to the nation that produces it. Since ornament is no longer a natural product of our culture, so that it is a phenomenon either of backwardness or degeneration, the work of the ornamentor is no longer adequately remunerated.

Design and Crime

Hal Foster
essay
design

Hal Foster extends, with this essay, the discussion started by Adolf Loos in 1906 in his text on Art Nouveau entitled Ornament and Crime. Foster explains the current uber domination of design, incorporating, into the confusion between genres foreshadowed by Loos, the dehumanization advocated by Musil in Man without attributes, that is, the objectless subject. To understand the path that has led us from Guimard to Steve Jobs it is essential to read Design and Crime.

A world of qualities without man has arisen, of experiences without the person who experiences them, and it almost looks as though ideally private experience is a thing of the past, and that the friendly burden of personal responsability is to dissolve into a system of formulas of possible meanings. Probably the dissolution of the anthropocentric point of view, which for a such a long time considered man to be at the center of the universe but which has been fading for centuries, has finally arrived at the “I” itself.

Two bodies hang on a large paper surface. Armed with graphite bars, they draw what their momentum, in constant struggle with the force of gravity, traces as a circular, rough and at the same time fluid route. A choreographic, graphic and editorial work that turns logic upside down.

Taking ownership of the cabañuelas, an ancient method of predicting the agricultural cycle, a group of personalities never assembled and scattered across the globe, build from observation and reflection on the environment, a calendar of omens that points out and foresees collisions criticism in some cases, seasons of tremors in others, violent revolutions or migrations of birds and capital.

Through the cracks of our times, the contemporary curse was dictated by a whispering voice before the creepy becoming. It was years ago when it began to take shape and be slowly dictated like the groan of a monster buried in a mountain about to explode.
Silent, enormous spread among us, a curse dedicated to all those authoritarian and neoliberal regimes that only bring destruction and restlessness: The Others is our revenge.

We will remember you as what never should have been.

We will
completely forget you afterwards.

You are

poetry

Thought as a single poem, Espejos by Tania Carrera pursues, through fragmentation, the latent construction of an identity in equivalence: the formation of the two sides of the mirror runs parallel in time, in and out. The zero point, the point at which both sides should intersect, seems to meet and contract in the multiplicity of the broken, gnawed, fragmented, multiplied, and broken mirror.

Manuel de Landa
essay

Manuel de Landa, is an artist, academic, writer and, in his own words, "street philosopher without credentials". Concepts such as self-organization, anti-markets, artificial life, the internet and non-linearity are so new that it is just beginning to see what they are able to show about our behaviors. A light but deep talk of the ideas that build the author's thinking of Mil años de historia no lineal.

The lines are fuzzy but only when you compare viruses with, let’s say, crystals. Crystals also grow by replication, viruses also grow by replication. In a way, a virus is just a fancy crystal. But when you compare creatures farther away from the border, say, what we call higher animals like ourselves, you can see the difference with hurricanes. The command component in the mixture increases with evolution and the higher you get in the evolutionary tree the command component increases. We call it “higher” but we are not any higher than bacteria, we just happen to believe we are special. So to use the organism as a metaphor is wrong.

Aforismos

Abdelmadjid Benjelloun
POETRY

Abdelmadjid Benjelloun, Moroccan writer, poet and historian, presents in his Aforismos, brief definitions that go to the point or that go to the neck; they leave nothing out, nothing unexplained, following the old arrangement of geometry that warns that the shortest distance between two words is happening. The whole universe fits in one word; understanding its complexity is a matter of conjugating and arguing it, alone and dry, with the stone, the sky, the streams, the men, the silences, the women, the shadow, death and the sea.

Mi muerte es un asunto entre el silencio y yo.

Adiós

Oriol Vilanova
POETRY

One morning, the city of Paris wakes up and the Louvre museum is no longer there. In its place is a mountain of rubble, broken works, pieces from the museum's collection: gravel of the modern mixed with the old. The theater-performance piece by the Catalan artist Oriol Vilanova is a monologue that challenges the viewer and the bourgeois idea of ​​culture and heritage. A long accusatory sentence dictated by a girl, by the museum itself and by Hubert Robert, who saved his head from the guillotine and after the French revolution became the first curator of the Louvre.

You are sorry.

Ya no vas nunca al teatro, de hecho ya estás allí.

EROTICA

What can be after Youporn, but a trail of wonderful images: a micro world full of small deaths that parade between erect, winged and equine totems through the meadows of these small antigravity gomorons inhabited by pussy cats with round and soft buttocks, flying horse-penises and rivers of semen and slime. Choreographic vaginas wide open and a sexual-porno-erotic animalario misbehaved but delicious fruit, from the perverse hinge and the bold and delirious eye of Andrea García.

¿A dónde va la poesía?

Bernard Nöel
POETRY

Wondering Where does poetry go? it involves unfolding the writing back and forth, to its future and its past; it implies reflecting on the destiny that lies ahead but also looking for the “missing link” between prose and verse, between linearity and verticality and between mouth and hand. Bernard Nöel traces this brief history from the disposition of poetry on the page, less as an anthropology of writing than as an archeology of mental spaces, place and surface of creation and perpetual emancipation.

Once Poemas

Mahmoud Darwish
poetry

The voice in inner exile, in metaphysical introspection, in the undulating fluidity of the words: revolving around love, daily life and the hope that rises even when the tower falls. Mahmoud Darwish, is considered the Palestinian national poet and one of the most significant contemporary Arab writers.The first lines of this book say “Write that I am Arab, and the number of my card is fifty thousand: the references and the feelings are palpable”, with this image one can clearly imagine the situation in some border. Palestinian, Mahmoud Darwish manifests, in eleven poems, his condition of exile, and from there, in the confines and at a distance, the horizon folds between absence, despair and some hope recovered. 

Escribe que soy árabe, 
y con mis camaradas de infortunio trabajo en la cantera. 
Para mis ocho hijos arranco,
de las rocas, el mendrugo de pan, el vestido y los libros. 
No mendigo limosnas a tu puerta, ni me rebajo ante tus escalones. ¿Te enfadarás por ello?

Esta condición llamada exilio, 
o llevar bellotas

Iósif Brodsky
poetry

A reflection on what it means to write and breathe in exile: flight, search, his position in the world, fantasy, writing as a weapon, as a defense, as a construction.

¿Por qué el escritor exiliado tendría que valerse de cualquier otra cosa, por qué habría de molestarse en vislumbrar el futuro de otra manera si a final de cuentas éste seguirá siendo impredecible? Aquel viejo caldo de cultivo le sirvió de algo por lo menos una vez: le ha ganado el exilio. Y el exilio, después de todo, es una clase de éxito. ¿Por qué habría de ser de otra forma? ¿Por qué echarle un poco más de agua al caldo?

Consejos a las mujeres

Ovidio
essay

Love between women and men, thought of as a struggle, requires weapons and a strategy. Leaving her devoid of formation is as much as abandoning them to their fate in the face of an enemy that seems well prepared. Through famous couples taken from greek mythology, Ovid’s advice seeks to remedy this disadvantage, not only to seduce them, but also to enslave and deceive them; because only a woman educated in these arts will be able to find a cultivated and non-gross man who continues to fight his Iliads.

Ovidio ha dado armas a los hombres para que, en amor, luchen con las mujeres; ahora las dará a éstas para que se defiendan y, a su vez, puedan combatir contra ellos. Así, la batalla se empeñará con medios iguales, y vencerán quienes fueren alentados por Venus y Cupido.

Amapola's flowers from which opium and heroin are derived and a collection of portraits of drug traffickers adorned with mustaches. The former are sought to be transformed into illegal substances, the latter sought by the world police for their equally illegal business. What will be the relationship between flowers and mustaches? It is perhaps probable that none, however, in the landscape of the war against drug trafficking in Mexico, those with the mustache appear more times on the covers than the beautiful poppy flowers. The relationship between these two species is one: in both cases they are the most wanted.
