A collection of photographs,
“That a political reality can be essentially spatial presents something of a challenge to the modern understanding.
First, because we’ve been accustomed to think of politics as that abstract dimension where positions and discourses are distributed, from left to right.
Second, because we inherit from modernity a conception of space as an empty, uniform, and measurable expanse where objects, creatures, or landscapes occupy their place.
But the sensible world does not present itself to us in that way.
Space is not neutral.
Things and beings don’t occupy a geometric position, but affect it and are affected by it.
Places are irreducibly loaded—with stories, impressions, emotions.”
