We were getting coffee. Discussing the use of organizing. Of kinship. The ongoingness of the non-phenomenal. T…

  • Leila Awadallah and Asma Ghanem, My Garden Is a Security Threat. Photo by Galen Fletcher for Walker Art Center, Minneapolis. I’m a bilingual writer who primarily writes in English. The practice of creating my body of art—that is, a process of creation through which the art becomes, in itself, a separate entity from the artist—is a practice of self-translation. I modify the bending of my tongue to produce only a partiality. This process of creation separates my body of art from my corporea…

  • To be black is to be injured. An injury is a status, a commonly held social belief that one is not in good health. What it means to be to healthy depends on your place. We only speak of health when things aren’t well.  To be injured is to move closer to death. Injury is a liminal space and time where life transitions towards death, modern medicine. We call it modern because those in power started to care about populations,[i] their populations. Medicine develops not to prevent injury but to i…

In describing the Black Arts Movement in her essay “Black Post-Blackness: The Black Arts Movement and 21st Century Aesthetics”, scholar Margo Natalie Crawford describes a pliable blackness: a blackness which can be shaped and unshaped. Crawford states, “Black post-blackness is the circular inseparability of the lived experience of blackness and the translation of that lived experience into the world-opening possibilities of art.” (2) The world-opening possibility brings wi…
