In thinking about critic and curator Okwui Enwezor’s lecture at MFAH. Intimacy. Fear. Proximity. Disturbing nearness. Loss of shallow distance. Contamination. Enclosure. Enclusion. Exclusion. Exception. Empire of Secrets. Endless waiting. Out of place. Out of time. Out of tune. Profound unsettling. Mode of eradication. Intolerance. Non-recognition. Residue. Degeneration of public space. Artificial enclosure. “…The ‘state of emergency’ in which we live is not the exception but the rule” (walter benjamin).
