Poetics of Relation

Curator Reviews

Hans Ulrich Obrist

Glissant is a writer I read every day for 15 minutes. His poetry, novels, and philosophy have such urgency today. Here, he focusses on the Caribbean archipelago, an island group with no center, just a string of different islands and cultures that shapes his concept of “Archipelic thought,” elevating diversity as an antithesis to continental space, which makes a claim to absoluteness and tries to force its world view on other countries.
