Esse x Art Volt Writing Residency

We are happy to share the result of the second participant in the Esse x Art Volt Writing Residency: “Pedagogical Entanglements”, an essay by Marcela Borquez.

“During my residency, I was drawn to authors who initiated conversations regarding how our ways of doing and thinking permeate beyond singular artworks toward the ways we conceive ourselves as artistic communities, shaping our practices, narratives, and institutions. The texts I discuss evidence a drive to generate opportunities for dialogue and encounter that necessarily asks us to consider whom we address through our work. This, in turn, entails a recognition of the other and their voice, a redistribution of power through the possibility of enunciation.”
