A lyric essay on the Latin-American avant-garde that critiques the aspiration to immovable truths in Western forms of writing. This triptych describes an alternative landscape where private and public forms of intimacy coalesce in their relationship with uncertainty and the unforeseeable. This alignment of artistic and social practice responds in a humane and compassionate approach to the question: what does it mean to share space, breath in union, even while enduring economic and social isolation? This is a poetic manifesto for a Latinx avant-garde’s capacity to shelter and give voice to those othered by history.
