In this brief essay I reflect on the interactions between the real and the unreal, with a particular emphasis on comics and the city. Comics originate in the emerging city of modernity, and are shot through with both actual cities (in their sites of production and, often, consumption) and virtual ones. Further, few media are as useful for considering the role of the unreal, the held back, the around-the-corner-but-never-in-view, as comics. This reticence is productive, not only of narratives but also of the subjects who read them. Practices of reading comics, when applied to the city itself, highlight the unreal ...

In this conversation that occurred before her presentation at New York’s Left Forum, Tings Chak and I discuss the historical and contemporary racialized treatment of migrant bodies in North America and Europe.

What does that mean at a legal standpoint to be incarcerated not for punishing reasons but for administrative reasons? How does architecture unfold violence upon bodies through its very physicality? What would that ...

Sarah Mirk and I had this conversation in the offices of Bitch magazine where she works as online editor.

In The Secret Life of Gitmo Women, she and Lucy Bellwood created a comic book that recounts the life of two female veterans from the US Navy when they were assigned in Guantanamo Bay. We also talk about prisons and her experience teaching playwriting there, as well as the interesting inmate personalities that ...

This conversation is an interview I did with graphic novelist Marc-Antoine Mathieu for Chicago-based architectural journal MAS Context (Issue 20: Narrative). The interview was made in French as you will hear, but for the purpose of Archipelago, this version is dub with the English version given by Liduam Pong. Marc-Antoine and I speak about his fascination to design labyrinths in which he can loose his characters, his readers, and himself as well. We also evoke the specificity offered by this unique medium of the graphic novel, as well as the way third and fourth dimensions can be considered and imagined through this ...
