BÏTCH, Welcome to America!

Woman, immigrants, latinos… many groups at many times carry the
weight of the system on their shoulders. The are promised rewards (for them, or perhaps their children) as long as they conform. What is the promise? Assimilation, acceptance and wealth.

This video-installation explores the mundane horror of a human being reduced to an “animal” through behavioral conditioning. There has been a lot of (in our opinion, not enough) resistance to it. Just as the current fashion holds that everything is “information”, or the older philosophic fashion of “utility”, Skinner’s behaviorist regime only works if you throw away much of what makes us human.

Window Installation of YTAELENA LOPEZ & CARLOS BUENO

La mandíbula se le desencaja al hablar
En voz baja
Como si contuviera el vómito de mil años de silencio

El pecho ulula con cada latido
De su conciencia
Creando nubarrones de fluidos negros
Arteros
Dulzones
Calientes
Titilantes
Con cada inclinación obligada de las pestañas ante la presencia
Del otro
A quién solo alcanza a adivinar sus pies descalzos.

¿Acaso le tememos tanto al vecino?
Si tan solo es el reflejo sobre una ausencia seca.

(Foto y poema de Ytaelena López)

Nunca lo hubiese imaginado…

!Mi BÏTCH recomendado por el San Francisco Weekly!!!!!!

Estoy super contenta, aunque algo presionada. Pero si puedo mover a la gente, al menos a los panas a ATA, para mi es suficiente…

Quiero ver si reaccionan frente a una latina esclavizada por el esposo a punta de coñazos… en ficción.

Algunos se indignaron, otros ya quisieran volver a esos tiempos.

¿Y tu?
