right to be
The right to be.
A way of seeing: the same thing seen in a different way, from a different angle, transforms the territory - in the context of the struggle. How is this struggle made visible? An internal, epistemological transformation. Kanchenjunga [the himalayan mountain] land, seen as the firefly lights up in the dark. What form does this kind of autonomy take? What is the politics of this form of ephemerality, in contrast with the visualizing logic of a "development" project, which also simultaneously converts the earth's cosmological powers?
With a shift in perception the land becomes abundant (and not just resource-rich), earth appears beautiful (and not in a romanticized way), "labor" becomes non-instrumentalized, work becomes a form of care, the terrain lights up.
Reverse engineering an eviction, through a minimal form: what we could call “reproduction” and not “production”: by not cutting life off, rather allowing it to flow. A space of concentration, a space of subtraction. When we subtract ourselves from a dominant system of thought, a whole new terrain of potential opens up. Patriarchy disappears. The actuality of things emerge.
