...tastes like a reversed-post-rebetiko in my eyes...so...how can you claim this multi-sensuous terra you invent , being no-man's?
it is a photo of two brothers. armenians, who died in a non-battle, in a borderless (non)zone(rather an area they cosidered to be their country but which ws usurpes by another country)and has never been officially documented except thru non-papers transferred from government agencies.
"no man's land" is not a gender isssue
beyond genders, borders, or any form of definition,no man's land appears before me,not as absence,but as a plateau of inexporable possibilities,that of assuming multiple identities,even a voluntary non-visibility...
the problem with no man's land is that it leads to a non-visibility(which is enforced and so one does not have the choice of it being a voluntary act) and in most)if not alll caases) it leads to inexplorable possibilities that drive one to extinction.rarely(one would say never) does it led to self emancipation
let us revisit words,let us dwell inside questions.beyond the obvious,beyond the preconceived,what is it to exist, what to become extinct?random acts, give rise to unexpected experiences.
still,dialectics,can always remain negative.
i am afrid that these are interesting, and yet theoretical points. i would suggest that perhaps you might want to speak to aomeone that is a "refugee". then perhaps you will not change you view point on the poetics of exclusion/inclusion.what are dialectics to a man(woman) that has walked for 40 days with a plastic bag and water to arrive in a foreign land, to be a strnger in a strange landthat ultimately , never becomes his(her) own?
the only language/text that i can imagine in the case of exclusion is:the logistics of painwhatever this might mean to anyone
