SKINS OF COLUMBUS: A DREAM ETHNOGRAPHY by Edgar Garcia
140 x 220mm, 120 pages, colour printing, perfect bound, 2019
Colonial violence is a sticky phenomenon, gumming up the associational matrices of our daily lives and dreamscapes. Edgar Garcia intervenes with a poetic experiment: Every night of the three months of Columbus's first voyage to the Americas, Garcia read his corresponding journal entry before sleep. Asleep, his mind sutures displacements, migrations, and restorations into an assemblage of hemispheric becoming.
