subject: another book rec


"if the argonauts can be said to have a primary concern, this is it: how to resist a conception of queerness that shoehorns complex lives into a neat dichotomy of normative versus not, and how to resist the unhelpful demonization of motherhood, domesticity, and the other supposedly reactionary forms that love can take."

from Moira Donegan’s review of The Argonauts by Maggie Nelson. 

I just started reading!

subject: relational aesthetics

not sure if you have already read the book that sort of set up what relational aesthetics are, but elise was able to give me the entire PDF of it :) she said it is kind of redundant and bourriaud's argument is slightly weak; she sees it as sort of an obvious thing. Just thought I would share it with you <3

subject: guten freaking tag!

I like how Beller traces how, while digitization tries to combat concepts of racism, there is still a capital that is being made from these forms of 'anti-racism' also, this article is just a nice read about the dichotomy of academia and "peasantry" and the idea of Utopia
