We have compiled a reading list of texts, books and audio/video material in collaboration with #LydiaOurahmane  to accompany her exhibition, 'The you in us' at #ChisenhaleGallery . ⠀ ⠀ This week's pick is #ÉdouardGlissant 's book of collected poems, 'The Collected Poems of Édouard Glissant' (1994/2005). ⠀ ⠀ "[...] one is struck by the power of this poetry, the extraordinary persistence in its original inspiration and the manner in which it announces and then exemplifies the theories developed in 'Poetics of Relation' or 'Caribbean Discourse'. Glissant's poetics eschews the idea that the text should express an interiority. The poetic text reflects materiality and movement of things and histories." –– #JeanKhalfa , Literature and Arts of the Americas Journal⠀ ⠀ The reading list expands on ideas raised through Ourahmane’s new commission. Visit the Exhibitions page of our website to download the full bibliography, link in bio. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ -----------------------------------⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ 64 Chisenhale Road, London E3 5QZ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ -----------------------------------⠀⠀ ⠀ @emogirl4  #chisenhalegallery  #eastlondon  #london  #readingmaterial  #readinglist  #poeticsofrelation  #collectedpoems  #poetry

Jeudi 12 avril 2018 #ÉdouardGlissant  1928-2011 "Chacun de nous a besoin de la mémoire de l'autre, parce qu'il n'y va pas d'une vertu de compassion ou de charité, mais d'une lucidité nouvelle dans un processus de la Relation. Et si nous voulons partager la beauté du monde, si nous voulons être solidaires de ses souffrances, nous devons apprendre à nous souvenir ensemble."

#wednesdaywisdom . “Making History” is a 2008 documentary directed by Karen D. McKinnon and Caecilia Tripp. “Édouard Glissant is widely acknowledged as being one of the most important Caribbean writers of past half-century and was nominated for the Nobel Prize in literature. Linton Kwesi Johnson is the father of dub poetry and in 2002 became only the second living poet and first black poet to have his work published in Penguin’s Modern Classic series. These old friends meet on a summer’s day in New York…” The film will be screened at the BRIC Flix: caribBEING Film Fest TODAY, Wednesday, 12/16/2015. #édouardglissant  #lintonkwesijohnson  #documentary  #film  #nobelprize  #dubpoetry  #nyc  #diaspora  #caribbean  #nyc  #martinique  #jamaica  #caribbeing  #iamcaribbeing  #jesuiscaribbeing  #caribpolitan  #bebold  #becolorful  #becaribbeing  #watch  #discover  #engage  Image Credit: www.pamm.org

#Repost  @amplify285  (@get_repost ) ・・・ This week Toni Morrison became an ancestor, and that is difficult to process. There is of course much to say, and many people will be saying many things. I will be one of them. But for now I just need to read, think, and touch. So, with that in mind, I’m sharing “assembly,” a page from .break .dance, which is an interactive digital project published in a recent issue of Small Axe Archipelagos. This is a page that you might arrive at towards the end of .break .dance, depending on the combinations of breaking and dancing paths you choose to follow. It offers a meditative approach to thinking alongside #BabySuggs ’ sermon in the Clearing, in the #ToniMorrison  novel #Beloved . The gaps are here for a reason, and the purpose of the experience is not to make a flowing essay, but to feel what emerges out of the gaps, and also what must, inevitably, fall into them. Read, think, touch, play, think. Which is to say that this is the dance in the break, the dance after the break, the dance in lieu of, in the site of, the break. The counterclockwise motions of grounded flesh set against the sharp edges of Sethe’s attempted final flight. This is the power represented in a tendwa cosmogram materialized through dancing, laughing, and weeping bodies. The ring shout. At the end of this experience, you might also find some words from #ÉdouardGlissant , to bring you safely home. #breakdanceglitch  #sxarchipelagos  @irlhumanities  project at: https://mp285.com/assembly read more at: https://mp285.com/nb/ancestors

The Library of Glissant Studies's team wishes to pay homage to the Cuban poet and essayist Roberto Fernández Retamar, who died yesterday in Havana at 89 years old. He was an emblematic figure of contemporary Cuban culture, and the director of la Casa de las Américas since 1986. The author of "Caliban" was also a thinker of the Caribbean, and a faithful friend of Édouard Glissant, whom he called "my brother", as shown by these few words written for the 1979 Carifesta. #edouardglissant  #édouardglissant  #robertofernandezretamar  #casadelasamericas  #poetry  #poet

LoGS's Log : L'équipe de la Library of Glissant Studies est heureuse de vous annoncer la publication des actes du colloque "Antilles/Louisiane : Un espace-temps partagé" organisé à Baton Rouge en 2016 sous la direction d'Alexandre Leupin et Dominique Aurelia. Dès son installation en Louisiane, en 1988, Édouard Glissant avait oeuvré à rapprocher ces deux espaces des Amériques dont il évoquait la relation poétique en ouverture des "Grands Chaos" : "Au large du Meschacébé, Père des Eaux. Le paysage, horizontal à vertige, qui suit le cours de la rivière Atchafalaya. Il rencontre celui, obstiné en hauts et abîmes, qui en Martinique va de Balata au Mont Pelé, par la route de la Tracée". Dans son sillage et en une manière d'hommage à sa pensée, cet ouvrage interroge et examine sous diverses perspectives (culturelle, sociologique, historique, philosophique, anthropologique, esthétique, littéraire) les liens constitutifs de cette "nouvelle région du monde" toujours à venir. #edouardglissant  #édouardglissant  #louisiane  #louisiana  #antilles  #martinique  #guadeloupe  #caraïbes

John Akomfrah, Vertigo Sea, 2015. Video still. © Smoking Dogs Films. Courtesy Lisson Gallery. John Akomfrah, CBE (born in 1957) is a British artist, writer, film director, screenwriter, theorist and curator of Ghanaian descent, whose "commitment to a radicalism both of politics and of cinematic form finds expression in all his films". The Restless Earth (La Terra Inquieta), an exhibition curated by Massimiliano Gioni and co-produced by the Fondazione Nicola Trussardi and Fondazione Triennale di Milano, as part of the Visual Arts Program of the Triennale directed by Edoardo Bonaspetti in 2015. The Restless Earth borrows its title from a collection of poems by Édouard Glissant, a Caribbean writer who probed the question of how different cultures can coexist. The exhibition shared in Glissant’s project a pressing and necessary one that describes this unstable and agitated present as a polyphony of voices and narratives, charting both experiences and perceptions of migration and the current refugee crisis as an epoch-making transformation that is reframing contemporary history, geography, and culture. Through installations, videos, documentary images, historical sources, and material artifacts, The Restless Earth explored real and imaginary geographies, reconstructing the odyssey of #migrants  through personal and collective tales of exodus inspired by varying degrees of urgency and longing. The exhibition revolved around a series of geographic and thematic lines of inquiry – the war in #Syria , the state of emergency in #Lampedusa , life in refugee camps, the figure of the nomad or stateless person, and Italian migration in the early 20th century – which intersect with works that serve as #visual  metaphors for conditions of mobility and precariousness. source: fpmagazine.eu . #JohnAkomfrah  #VertigoSea  #SmokingDogsFilms  #LissonGallery  #installation  #art  #arts  #bookofkhidr  #arte  #artist  #artists  #artjournal  #artcurator  #artcurators  #artcollector  #artgallery  #ÉdouardGlissant  #refugee  #refugees  #UK  #Ghana  #FondazioneNicolaTrussardi  #FondazioneTriennalediMilano  #EdoardoBonaspetti  #british  #Caribbean

Caribbean poetry pile. I was rewrapping Césaire when I decided to ‘inventory’ my titles from the region. High number from Cuba is pretty self explanatory. Most of these folks lived very cosmopolitan lives, primarily due to the circuits of (neo)colonialism, so might as well include Espada in here. Speaking of circuits, didn’t include the network the Cuban Revolution ushered in, would have to include Cardenal, Benedetti, Gelman, Dalton, so on. I wish I invested more on these back then, considering the regional parallels of the Caribbean and Southeast Asia.

"In the southward trek of lands. In the salty frost of morning. In the energy of clay earthing over this fate. In hands their palms now obsolete. In the voice of infinity through deserts and torrents. In the echo with neither wave nor roar. In begging. In a wound deep into dark greens. In the mud uprooting bamboos from cement, and in a naked old man alert all night for lightning. In a dead body scooped up in the trucks. In crawling. In a crazed driver leaving his tractor pale. In preciosity. In the jaws of a political and lying fish. In the heart-pang of rocks your whole heart. Where every land has come to you." - Edouard Glissant, 'Country', from the collection Yokes (1979).

✨Meilleurs vœux ✨ Avec qqs inspirations pour 2019 : 📍Pour donner de la force au quotidien : "Agis dans ton lieu pense avec le monde" 🙏 #ÉdouardGlissant  (📚 Le Tout Monde, Le Discours antillais, Poétique de la Relation...) 📍❤️" Je vous souhaite d'être follement aimé " et d'aimer encore&encore. 🙏 #Aragon  (📚 Le fou d'Elsa) 📍 Pour ne pas perdre de vue ses rêves : "Rien n'interdit de donner une forme concrète et généreuse à la beauté de nos utopies" 🙏#NadiaYalaKisukidi . 📍Pour rebondir quoiqu'il arrive : "Personne ne l'a vu, mais je suis une étoile filante qui n'a pas encore touché le fond, la fin du ravin, malgré la chute. Encore une fois j'émerge du péril. Je survis. Je fête. Je vis. J'ultravis" 🙏 @aminatacauris  (📚Je suis quelqu'un) 📍Folie et humilité au quotidien : "La vie c'est une bonne dose de folie et beaucoup d'humilité.... La folie permet de se liberer...

Le début donc en 2018 d'une nvlle vie de journaliste freelance avec de belles collaborations en cours et à venir 🙏. Et le Hors-Série alors dont j'ai parlé ici ?, me demandez-vous.

Lydia Cabrera and Édouard Glissant: Trembling Thinking On view at Americas Society @ascoa  until January 12, 2019 Curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Gabriela Rangel, and Asad Raza This exhibition is organised in partnership with the Cuban Heritage Collection of the University of Miami and focuses on the theories advanced by the well-known Caribbean thinkers #LydiaCabrera  and #ÉdouardGlissant . Both modern and contemporary artists were selected for this exhibition, among them #WifredoLam  and #RobertoMatta , the estates of both of whom are represented by Galerie #Gmurzynska . The exhibition deals with defining culture in a literary way, similarities and differences, opacity and diversity in a cultural context. “Édouard Glissant was one of the most important writers and philosophers of our time. He called attention to means of global exchange that do not homogenise culture but produce a difference from which new things can emerge.” – Hans Ulrich Obrist Images: portrait of Lydia Cabrera Wifredo Lam “Portrait of Lydia Cabrera,” 1940s, University of Miami, Lowe Art Museum @loweartmuseum  #HansUlrichObrist  #Obrist  #AmericasSociety  #Serpentine  #Matta  #Lam  #Raza  #Rangel  #TremblingThinking 

Please join us tomorrow, Friday, November 16th in the Elebash Recital Hall and the James Gallery (12:45 to 7pm) at @thegraduatecenter  for “Édouard Glissant's Tout-Monde: Transnational Perspectives,” a day-long interdisciplinary symposium honoring the legacy and transnational reach of Édouard Glissant, who taught at the Graduate Center, CUNY from 1995 to 2011. The symposium brings to the fore scholars and artists, including Mary Ann Caws,Mohit Chandna, Nathalie Etoke, Paul Fadoul, Emmanuel Bruno Jean-François, Jarrod Hayes, Sylvie Kandé, Cilas Kemedjio, Francesca Canadé Sautman, Barbara Webb, Christopher Winks, and Pedro Zylbersztajn, who apply Édouard Glissant's theories to shed light on inter-communal relations, expose the power dynamics of the privileged versus the marginalized, advocate against boundaries while acknowledging difference, contest dominant hierarchies of race, ethnicity, and gender, and show how texts normalize some groups and make others “other.” #ÉdouardGlissant  Free and open to the public, visit our website centerforthehumanities.org to rsvp, full schedule and more information. This symposium is organized by the Center for the Humanities, the Henri Peyre French Institute, and Americas Society, and is co-sponsored by Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC), the Ph.D. Program in French and the Institute for Research on the African Diaspora in the Americas and the Caribbean (IRADAC). @iradac_gc  @americassociety.visualarts  # Image Credit: Photograph from the private collection of Olivier Glissant.

Bonne "Journée internationale de la langue et culture créoles"! Brassage de langues du monde entier, le créole est parlé par plus de 13 millions de personnes aujourd'hui. Chaque région a son propre créole. Des langues qui sont nées à la fin du XVIe siècle et indissociables de la traite des esclaves. Le créole s’est fait une place dans la littérature francophone grâce à des auteurs comme Édouard Glissant, Aimé Césaire, Frantz Fanon ou encore Daniel Honoré. Longtemps bannis des lieux d’apprentissage, les parlers créoles de #Guadeloupe , de #Guyane , de #Martinique  et de la #Réunion  sont reconnus comme faisant partie du patrimoine linguistique de la Nation en 2000. #ÉdouardGlissant  #AiméCésaire  #FrantzFanon  #DanielHonoré  #créolité  #créolisation  #kreyol  #Kréol  #créole  #creol  #kreol  #Seselwa 

On November 27, 1958, only a few days before the final recipient of the Renaudot Prize was decided, the famous and influential critic Maurice Nadeau published "À l'intention des jurys littéraires" in the newspaper "France Observateur". In the section entitled "Édouard Glissant : la condition de l'homme colonisé", Nadeau praised Glissant's first novel "La Lézarde". Glissant had been a collaborator of Nadeau's journal "Les Lettres nouvelles" since 1954 and had published his first article in June 1955. He was also a member of its editorial board from 1956 to 1959.

Écrit par Glissant pour combler le vide béant d'une Histoire qui n'a pas été dite - une Histoire "sous-marine", celle de l'esclavage - Le Quatrième siècle est un récit entre invention et Histoire. ● Glissant y raconte l'histoire, telle qu'elle aurait pu être consignée, des africains "déplacés" et réduits en esclavage ainsi que des rebelles qui, une fois sur l'île, ont "marronné" en s'enfuyant dans les montagnes. ● Ce roman raconte les jours "[n]on pas enrubannés dans l'artifice savant d'un tricentenaire, mais noués au sang méconnu, à la souffrance sans voix, à la mort sans écho[1]". ● Glissant y aborde la névrose qui touche les générations suivantes, condamnées à vivre sans mémoire collective car comment se construire sans passé ? Le poète et romancier pose cette question qui hante tant d'ouvrages littéraires : comment retrouver la mémoire ? Veut-on vraiment la retrouver ? ● "Qu'y a-t-il eu pour nous, sinon un grand trou que le temps a sauté d'un seul coup ? Et aujourd'hui, voilà, combien de trous sont ouverts dans la terre au moment même où je parle, et qui sait combien d'hommes sont devenus fous avant de mourir[2] ?" . ● Glissant écrit en creux, sur du vide. Seules les "racines de la relation", celles qui nouent les multiples histoires individuelles et toutes les voix de ce roman choral entre elles, peuvent fournir des fondations. ● Le Quatrième siècle est un très beau livre, formidablement écrit, où la forme poétique est très influente. Un livre forcément violent et très complexe aussi, qui ne se livre pas facilement et demandera de nombreuses relectures. Il ne faut pas hésiter à circuler entre les pages pour établir les liens que Glissant ne fait parfois que suggérer et ainsi déterrer les racines de l'histoire. ● Le travail de Glissant interroge notre conception de l'historiographie et le lien qu'elle entretient avec la littérature. Cette terre à retrouver, finalement, serait-elle dans le roman ? ● "Mais l'éblouissement lui-même n'était plus à eux. Le bruit de la chaleur n'était plus à eux. [...] Il n'amène à rien d'avoir un peu de terre, quand toute la terre n'est pas à tous[3]." ● Références en commentaires ⏬ ⏬

…He’s from Martinique, and he says when these islands—Martinique and around Martinique—are in dialogue with each other, you of course change when you are in dialogue with the other. But it does not necessarily mean that you lose your own identity, but a country where an identity becomes richer through that exchange, and I think thats what art can do, what the encounter of art can do. And that’s what we can achieve with exhibitions . A global dialogue that creates “créolisation”, as Glissant says, which respects differences and which isn’t afraid of this togetherness, of this common future… #sentencesnearby  #ÉdouardGlissant  #hansulrichobrist  speakingwith #charlotteburns  #inotherwords  #artagencypartners  #whatthecamerasees  #crossingthefield  #thingstothemselves  #kimpieters  #otago  #newzealand  #haftakeover  #desireisaconstellation  #theimageofthought  #theimageofsense  #snappingthewire  #subjectivelyobjective  #newtopographics  #ifyouleave  #lensculture  #paperjournalmag  #somewheremagazine  #ainbadmagazine  #aperturefnd  #flakphotorepost  #fisheyelemag  #studioflowers 

Opacity (2015) from The tangled web of belonging.⠀⠀⠀⠀ From Edouard Glissant who wrote about the right to opacity, the right to not be read. He spoke about how one does not need to understand the other to respect and live together with the other. To avoid categorisation and systematisation into a western logic one can instead embrace opacity. The racist is the person who despises what he/she does not understand. Glissant writes beautifully.

Jeudi 12 avril 2018 #ÉdouardGlissant  1928-2011 "Chacun de nous a besoin de la mémoire de l'autre, parce qu'il n'y va pas d'une vertu de compassion ou de charité, mais d'une lucidité nouvelle dans un processus de la Relation. Et si nous voulons partager la beauté du monde, si nous voulons être solidaires de ses souffrances, nous devons apprendre à nous souvenir ensemble."

We have compiled a reading list of texts, books and audio/video material in collaboration with #LydiaOurahmane  to accompany her exhibition, 'The you in us' at #ChisenhaleGallery . ⠀ ⠀ This week's pick is #ÉdouardGlissant 's book of collected poems, 'The Collected Poems of Édouard Glissant' (1994/2005). ⠀ ⠀ "[...] one is struck by the power of this poetry, the extraordinary persistence in its original inspiration and the manner in which it announces and then exemplifies the theories developed in 'Poetics of Relation' or 'Caribbean Discourse'. Glissant's poetics eschews the idea that the text should express an interiority. The poetic text reflects materiality and movement of things and histories." –– #JeanKhalfa , Literature and Arts of the Americas Journal⠀ ⠀ The reading list expands on ideas raised through Ourahmane’s new commission. Visit the Exhibitions page of our website to download the full bibliography, link in bio. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ -----------------------------------⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ 64 Chisenhale Road, London E3 5QZ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ -----------------------------------⠀⠀ ⠀ @emogirl4  #chisenhalegallery  #eastlondon  #london  #readingmaterial  #readinglist  #poeticsofrelation  #collectedpoems  #poetry 

Édouard Glissant, (born September 21, 1928, Le Lamentin, Martinique—died February 3, 2011, Paris, France), French-speaking West Indian poet and novelist who belonged to the literary Africanism movement. Glissant was a disciple and fellow countryman of the poet Aimé Césaire, who founded the Negritude movement to promote an African culture free of all colonial influences. Glissant recorded the awakening of colonized peoples in his verse collection Un Champ d’îles (1953 “An Expanse of Islands”) and in his epic poem Les Indes (1956 The Indies in bilingual edition). His novel La Lézarde (1958 “The Crack” Eng. trans. The Ripening) won him France’s Prix Théophraste Renaudot (1958), an important annual award bestowed upon a novel. In Le Quatrième Siècle (1964 “The Fourth Century”), he retraced the history of slavery in Martinique and the rise of a generation of young West Indians, trained in European universities, who would reclaim their land. The narrative structure of his novel Malemort (1975) interweaves the colonial history of Martinique with an examination of contemporary experience, a technique he used again in La Case du commandeur (1981 “The Commander’s Cabin”). Glissant’s other verse collections include Boises (1977 “Woods”) and Pays rêvé, pays réel (1985 “Countries Dreamed, Countries Real”). The collection of poems Le Sel noir (1960) was published in English translation as Black Salt: Poems. Glissant’s play Monsieur Toussaint (published 1961) is about the Haitian hero Toussaint-Louverture. His book about William Faulkner, Faulkner, Mississippi (1996), appeared in English translation under the same title. #BlackHistoryMonth  #ÉdouardGlissant  #CarterGWoodson 

Vous étiez nombreux au rendez-vous que nous avions pris avec M.Patrick Chamoiseau. La discussion autour de son ouvrage "Frères Migrants" 📙 et de concepts de mondialité, de relation, de tout-monde fut enrichissante, stimulante et inspirante. Alors pour toutes ces raisons nous tenons à vous remercier.

Der Komfort-Kuppel-Komplex January 17 –> March 17 // Tue - Sun : 11 am - 8 pm This is a themed exhibit! For the current event we are not exploring the question of how a “European revolt” would look and what might happen after such a highly energetic act, rather we are setting up an experiment with the help of the philosopher Slavoj Žižek: Some time ago he designed the image of a “dome” in which those who profit from globalisation are in charge. He is pursuing an idea first suggested by a colleague of his, Peter Sloterdijk – the idea of a “World Interior of the Capital”. It might conjure up images of the visionary Buckminster Fuller’s “Dome over Manhattan” (ca. 1960). And yet one would have to imagine this creation in a glassy, superdimensional form as it spans the entire Western World. Within the dome, there are things sprouting up, which are sometimes strange and often frightening. The things which one or two generations have striven for and now take for granted are questioned. And cherished notions of the liberally-minded are captured and often leveled against their creators. How to react? What to do? For starters, become aware of one’s own stories: Who are we? Where is the light? Where is the air? And the ground? Do we want to remain under glass, or does someone have the key? Using historical artifacts and pieces derived from the visual arts, film and design, this associative exhibition showcases the most diverse facets of our glass-dome-existence.
