Gabriel Giorgi, New York University
Recent reconfigurations of political subjectivities in South America gave impulse to the new rise of the right, in which hate infuses the public sphere. These changes are inseparable from transformations in technologies, circuits, and publics of writing. Recent art installations in Argentina and Brazil explore the intersections between online writing, hate, and wars of subjectivity. This talk will examine the tentative mapping of these reconfigurations, their new scenarios, and the reimagination of democracy they impose.
