en el entre / in the between : Selected Antena Writings

$24.00

Where does one person’s language end and another’s begin? Where does language live in our bodies? What is radical listening? What do we hear when we practice it, and how does it spark us to communicate differently? What does cross-language activist practice have to learn from experiments in poetic expression? Where might writing processes contribute to and be informed by social justice organizing efforts across language, race, nationality, immigration status, and other kinds of patently false yet perilously real borders?

Antena Aire

Antena Aire (initially known as Antena) is a language justice and language experimentation collaborative founded in 2010 by Jen Hofer and John Pluecker. Antena Aire activates links between social justice work and artistic practice by exploring how critical views on language can help us to reimagine and rearticulate the worlds we inhabit. Antena Aire has exhibited, published, performed, organized, advocated, translated, curated, interpreted, and/or instigated with numerous groups and institutions in the U.S. and across the Americas. Antena Aire publishes bilingual chapbooks and pamphlets through our Libros Antena Books imprint, and collaborates with Ugly Duckling Presse on the Señal Series of Latin American literature in translation. Antena Aire works in conjunction with two sister collectives dedicated to local language justice advocacy and organizing, Antena Houston and Antena Los Ángeles.

Description

Where does one person’s language end and another’s begin? Where does language live in our bodies? What is radical listening? What do we hear when we practice it, and how does it spark us to communicate differently? What does cross-language activist practice have to learn from experiments in poetic expression? Where might writing processes contribute to and be informed by social justice organizing efforts across language, race, nationality, immigration status, and other kinds of patently false yet perilously real borders? During the first ten years of their collaborative practice, Antena Aire founders Jen Hofer and John Pluecker have co-created manifestos, how-to guides, performances scores and improvised poems, translations, and essays—working from their home cities of Los Angeles and Houston respectively— which for the first time are collected here in one volume.
