Decolonial (re)mediators editorial manifesting – book(s) launch with Decolonial (re)mediators by garaje school

@MATERIAL, Klingenstrasse 23, 8005 Zürich, Switzerland 

“In our intense time as part of the SoC we saw our project go from “expectations” to “reality”. We started by proposing an online platform for translating texts related to decolonial theory, and along the way, we were surprised by the experience of collective translation, by the immense possibilities of marginalia, of unbinding books, of shaping pens without hands, of undertranslating. So, to manifest our vague desire to become an editorial, we want to stage a book launch: to seize this opportunity to share and materialize some of the materials that resulted from our undertranslation workshops in Utrecht, Zurich, London, Rotterdam and Bogotá: La cocina situada by Marina Monsónis, Barranquilla 2132 by José Antonio Osorio Lizarazo, Cuando los subalternos entran en el museo: desobediencia epistémica y crítica institucional by Paul Preciado and two chapters of Un mundo ch’ixi es posible. Ensayos para un presente en crisis by Silvia Rivera Cusicanqui (“Palabras mágicas. Reflexiones sobre la naturaleza de la crisis presente” and “Micropolítica andina. Formas elementales de insurgencia cotidiana.” It will be informal, there will be freshly printed publications, spirits and wines that are also publications, merch, beers and snacks and more than probably, reggaeton.” – by garaje school (María Angélica Madero + Santiago Pinyol)
