In this conversation, Budapest-based journalist and editor Tamás Bodoky unfolds for us the nationalist politics deployed by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán since the beginning of his second term in 2010. We begin with the establishment of a law allowing the government to easily control the press. We then evoke the reform of the Constitution that enforces Christian values and identity in the legal framework of the Hungarian society. But the most important part of the discussion questions these politics in relation to the important migratory movement of Central Asia and Middle East refugees through East Europe. The new hermetic fence built on the border with ...

For many years, Stuart Elden has thoroughly examined the concept of territory. In order to enter into this quasi-exhaustive research, I invited him to talk about the idea of volumetric territory, both in general and in the specific case of the occupied Palestinian territories. We borrow the notion of “politics of verticality” from Eyal Weizman in order to describe how sovereignty enforces itself onto subterranean, surface, and atmospheric spaces. Later, we use the work of Paul Virilio and Claude Parent and their architectural concept of oblique to challenge our common perception of territories in their flat cartographic interpretation. Finally, we discuss ...

In this conversation, Yael Lerer introduces us to her work as founder of Andalus Publishing, which used to translate Arabic literature and poetry (Palestinian Mahmoud Darwish, Lebanese Elias Khoury, Moroccan Muhammad Choukri, etc.) into Hebrew. The balancing act of this venture consists in gaining the trust from the authors — a polemic was thus created in Egypt when Yael approached some writers there — and preventing at all costs the normalization of what Yael calls herself the state of apartheid enforced upon Israel/Palestine by the Israeli government. We also discuss about Yael’s role in the foundation of the Balad, a Palestinian political ...

This short conversation with Marjetka P. has the particularity to be recorded in the ‘thickness’ of the border between Slovenia and Croatia, where a new fence materializes and drastically filters the access to the Schengen space — Croatia is a member of the E.U. but not yet of Schengen. In this discussion in situ, we address the current situation both locally (i.e. in Slovenia) and more broadly, at the scale of what is legitimate to call “Fortress Schengen.” This conversation is followed by an even shorter one, recorded with Matija Kralj, who has been documenting the spatiality and activity of the Dobova refugee ...

This conversation with Mehammed Amadeus Mack is centered on his book Sexagon: Muslims, France, and the Sexualization of National Culture (Fordham University Press, 2017). In it, we discuss two types of injunctions. The first one is addressed to queer Arabs and Banlieusards; it is produced by homonormativity that imagines limited modes of being queer centered around the act of coming out and the centralized urban territoriality it ensues, in opposition of clandestine and peripheral praxis of homosexuality. The second injunction we discuss is a (homo)nationalist European one that consider Muslim queers to be in necessary conflict with their communities while setting the ...

This conversation with Maryam Monalisa Gharavi can be divided into three chapters, all corresponding to one physical aspects of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank in relation to Palestinian bodies. We begins with the physicality of the wall and compare its securitarian spectacularity with the ones built at the edges of Rio de Janeiro’s favelas in the last decade. We then address the question of the ground and its ability to shake our convictions when no longer providing the resistance to the entropy named gravity, like during the 1755 Lisbon earthquake. Finally, we talk about the colonized atmosphere on the ...

This conversation with Banu Bargu is centered around the concept of “weaponization of life” that she coins in her book, Starve and Immolate. In it, she describes political self-destructive practices as political practice, in particular in the context of the leftist prisoners’ fast death struggle in the 2000s Turkey. We associate to these practices the concept of human shield to which she also dedicated a research. Through these various forms of voluntary incarnated precariousness, we discuss the spectacularization of the action, the economy of life implied by it, as well as the mode of biopolitical sovereignty against which it is deployed. Banu Bargu is associate professor ...
