Manifest about living and surviving.
Here we inhabit the dimension of survival, and not of living. Living implies having certain basic needs resolved and being able not to question their vital capacity. On the contrary, survival keeps us in direct connection with it, with the concern and action revolving around not dying, around surviving;
surviving with pandemic
surviving without pandemic
surviving becoming sick
surviving unsafe abortion
surviving extreme inequality
surviving the confinement with your assailant
surviving the debts
surviving choosing art as a trade.
(There’s a silence)
A global stage, a global platform.
We’ve seen the fear.
The invisible – the unknown.
A fiction that disarms and locks up humanity. It detains it.
And in it, what seemed essential to us before.
From what point do we define the future?
Isn’t this the future maybe?
What do we do with this reality now? We don’t have the answers, just a pile of questions lined up to be answered by the great scholars of the academic world. Only they would dare.
What do we do with this reality now?
Sometimes, between collecting the dead, letting wounds heal and surviving, we take to the streets and sing our rage.
