Bekristen / Christians

Chapter I. Domestication

La domesticacion La pharmaco 01
Neo-liberalism is a new form of colonisation: it imposes its agenda of customs and beliefs with a radical violence, and condemns the colonised body to a life oriented around its values: youth, success, asepsis, and non-locality. As with old-school colonialism, the last thing it seeks is the independence of the colonised body, its freedom, and as such it demands amnesia and rejects any notion of a different future.

 

 

Neoliberalism is the perfect fiction, an impeccable application of the Aristotelian concept of verisimilitude.

Through domestication, various bodies compete to achieve the ideal that will rescue them from their own body: from hunger, death, fear, memory or illness. Bodies are convinced of the need to become “genuine” and allow themselves to be diluted by cosmopolitanism in exchange for suffering the most contemporary of tragedies: awareness of leading a day-to-day existence constructed through acts that are destroying the world.

 

 

Domestication is the first instalment of Bekristen/Christians, a trilogy that emerges from a project begun in Equatorial Guinea in 2016 that reflects on human need, social trauma and collective failure.
