Artist Nadia Mazzoni reads German dramatist Heiner Müller’s text Denken ist Schuld, which is published in the recent issue of Subaltern. “Judging from the capitalist structure, the ant is the ideal human being. The human being itself is a distraction. Therefore, she must sometimes be eliminated when she can not be fully mechanized and thereby emptied of her own basic needs and advantages…”
Working diary – In each issue of Subaltern, artists from different disciplines write about their working processes instead of presenting completed work. Christian Ekvall, translator and writer, reads from his text about the new translation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby.
