Someone Else’s Discomfort: On Gregg Bordowitz

“Bordowitz figures himself out in real time, drawing on philosophical lineages and artistic legacies that speak to me but also make me feel like an outsider, a visitor to someone else’s home. Yet there’s something across the chasm of times and bodies that I find irresistible about the act of monologuing, about Bordowitz’s digressions and riffs, which intersect and accumulate until they resemble the arc of a life. I’m familiar with the drive and reluctance to assimilate; I catch echoes of my own interactions and fixations, my own desire for new affiliations and accidental solidarities, my own draft of a narrative.”

Read Hua Hsu’s introduction to Gregg Bordowitz’s Some Styles of Masculinity (Triple Canopy, 2021) in the Nation.

How the writer, artist, and activist exposes what is fraught in masculinity.

Triple Canopy – Some Styles of Masculinity Book Launch by Gregg Bordowitz & Fred Moten

Join Gregg Bordowitz and Fred Moten at Artbook at MoMA PS1 (and streaming) on October 2 at 6 p.m. to celebrate the launch of Bordowitz’s new book, Some Styles of Masculinity (Triple Canopy, 2021). Bordowitz and Moten, friends and frequent correspondents, will discuss the performance and consumption of ethnicity in music and comedy; the story of Exodus and the promise of diaspora; and the role of culture in combating bigotry and claiming rights, especially in times of upheaval and plague.

A conversation about how people are shaped by assimilation and marginalization—and by rock stars, rabbis, and comedians.

Watch documentation of a conversation between Zakaria Almoutlak, Karthik Pandian, Andros Zins-Browne, M. NourbeSe Philip, and Evan Calder Williams. They considered how lives and histories are defined and reconfigured in the creation, circulation, destruction, and reconstruction of monuments, especially given the recent efforts to dismantle those honoring agents of colonialism and slavery. https://bit.ly/3szdcPb

Triple Canopy – RAGE (After Tokyo 2020) by Mars89

Listen to “RAGE (After Tokyo 2020),” a mix by Japanese DJ and activist Mars89. Mixing industrial noise, protest music, and deconstructions of traditional Japanese instruments, Mars89 channels the widespread anger in and beyond Japan not only at the Olympics—a self-aggrandizing indulgence pushed through by the country’s elites during a pandemic, at incredible cost to the people—but at Japanese conservatism.

He describes the government’s campaign to bring the Olympics to Tokyo (while concealing the extent of the Fukushima disaster), and to go on with the Games despite the dire circumstances and popular opposition, as a “death voyage”—and as in line with the country’s deep-seated crony capitalism, sexism, xenophobia, and racism, among other defects. But the mix also includes music that provides Mars89 and fellow dissenters with the energy (and soundtrack) to pierce the telegenic facade and expose the reality beyond the empty stadiums, antiseptic dormitories, and lurid pageantry.

A mix in response to the Tokyo Olympics, and in opposition to hollow celebrations of national identity and false displays of unity.

Triple Canopy – Imagined Minorities by Mahmood Mamdani with Ratik Asokan

“The great claim of the state is to deliver rule of law to everybody who lives within the territory, right? In that sense, the state doesn’t distinguish between citizen and non-citizen. The nation, on the other hand, claims to represent a group that exercises ‘self-determination.’ That group is defined by culture—whether through religion, ethnicity, or tribe—and identified with a piece of land. As a result, the nation-state produces minorities that live within the state but do not belong to the nation.”

A conversation about the colonial roots of the nation-state, the fabrication of “timeless” identities, and the purging of minorities.

On Tuesday, August 17, at 7 EDT, we’re hosting a virtual listening session with Harmony Holiday and Fred Moten. To mark the tentative return of public gatherings, they’ll listen to recordings of live performances and ask: why do we yearn for the experience of seeing performers (and joining audiences) in the flesh?

A listening session that asks what we hear in live music in the pandemic era, after months without sweaty audiences and deafening speakers.

Triple Canopy – Healing of the Nations by Ilana Harris-Babou

Now online: Ilana Harris-Babou’s “Healing of the Nations,” a series of videos that examine the vexed legacy of Dr. Sebi, one of the world’s most famous (and mythologized) dieticians. His brand of herbalism for Black people amounted to a vision of pan-Africanism, attracting charges of fraud—and a cult following that has continued to grow, even after his suspicious death in 2016.

“Four Songs without Z,” published in our new issue, is a suite of songs that is part of a years-long collaboration between the artists Karthik Pandian, Andros Zins-Browne, and Zakaria Almoutlak—a sculptor from Homs who joined the Syrian revolution in 2011 and later fled to Belgium, where he now lives—that renders Almoutlak’s experience through sculpture and vocal performance. The singers, Ganavya Doraiswamy and Aliana de la Guardia, improvise as they move between lyrics, weaving fragments of Almoutlak's life together, migrating his stories into melodies from a range of popular, folk, and classical genres.

Triple Canopy – Outside by Natasha Soobramanien & Luke Williams

“She thought: Above all, I will talk about the Chagossian people, the former inhabitants of the island and archipelago, the living, the exiled—in Victoria, Port Louis, Manchester, Crawley—as well as the generations of dead; I will connect the social death forced upon the Chagossians to the structures of intercontinental superexploitation too deep to trace through fiction…”

A fiction about two writers and best friends who spin personal and political connections to a remote, militarized atoll in the Indian Ocean.

Excerpt from Untitled by Jibade-Khalil Huffman

Light Shows—a program we presented with Wendy's Subway to celebrate two recent publications by Benjamin Krusling—is streaming on our website. Krusling created a video that incorporated excerpts from his debut book of poems, Glaring (Wendy’s Subway, 2020), and his digital series of poems, “i have too much to hide” (Triple Canopy, 2021), as well as new work. Asiya Wadud and S*an D. Henry-Smith contributed videos that feature readings of poetry, and Jibade-Khalil Huffman and Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste created new video and sound works.

Triple Canopy – Family Matters by André Naffis-Sahely

“The ‘new man’ conjured by Fascism seems paradoxical in theory, but my grandfather embodied the type: he fetishized individual strength and self-reliance but always seemed to be waiting for someone to tell him what to do, to deliver him from the confusions of democracy. He was frightened by the plurality of ideas and opinions, the gristmill of doubts and uncertainties. Even as a child I could tell that, for all his posturing, Giorgio was deeply insecure: the fall of Fascism left him without a sense of purpose or progress, so he clung to ideas he’d imbibed in his adolescence.”

An essay on the inheritance of fascism and the trials of becoming a “new man,” whether through conflict, reckoning, or rebranding.

Triple Canopy – A Note on Unknown States by Matthew Shen Goodman

“Nations continue to tell and retell the foundational stories that bind people together by fostering competition and coherence, animus and pride, whether in official statements or popular entertainment. But they must expect those stories to be demeaned as too fictitious, and the nation to be dismissed as too much—or too recent—an artifice.”

An essay on fictional homelands, Potemkin nations, and wonders of the industrial world.

Triple Canopy – Dual Nationality by Nina Yargekov with Daria Chernysheva

“Which is real, Yazygia or France, and to which of them are you lying?”

In Nina Yargekov’s “Dual Nationality,” the narrator consults a stuffed animal and a basil plant—and weathers prying questions from haughty Parisian concertgoers—while choosing which country, France or the semi-fictional Yazygia, to claim as a homeland. Read a new translation by Daria Cherneysheva.

https://www.canopycanopycanopy.com/issues/27/contents/dual-nationality

A fiction about an amnesiac who must choose between two nations, two languages, two identities. Translated by Daria Chernysheva.

Tonight at 5:30 p.m. EDT, we’re presenting Liner Notes 2, the second in a series of virtual events organized by Karthik Pandian and Andros Zins-Browne in conjunction with “Four Songs without Z,” a suite of songs published as part of our twenty-seventh issue. Written with Zakaria Almoutlak and performed by Ganavya Doraiswamy and Aliana de la Guardia, the songs tell the story of Almoutlak, a Syrian sculptor who fights the regime and then flees to Belgium.

Pandian and Zins-Browne will be joined by Almoutlak, M. NourbeSe Philip, and—via video transmission—Evan Calder Williams to consider how lives and histories are defined and reconfigured in the creation, circulation, destruction, and reconstruction of monuments, especially given the recent efforts to dismantle those honoring agents of colonialism and slavery.

Triple Canopy – Unknown Soldiers by Elizabeth Schambelan

Considering the Capitol rioters and Three Percenters—as well as ideologues such as the GOP phenom Madison Cawthorn and the anonymous manifesto writer known as Bronze Age Pervert—Elizabeth Schambelan’s new essay for Triple Canopy dissects the myth of the warrior-fraternity and the paramilitary symbols and creeds that have dominated the far-right nationalist imagination.

https://www.canopycanopycanopy.com/issues/27/contents/unknown-soldiers

An essay on reinventing the nation as a brotherhood of wolves—and what to wear to the civil war.

06/10/2021

We’ve just published the first contributions to our twenty-seventh issue, Unknown States.

https://www.canopycanopycanopy.com/issues/27

The issue asks: How do fictions give rise to nations and nationalities? How do those fictions work, and for whom? Unknown States considers the narratives that organize people (and capital) along national lines, which manifest in constitutions and flags, but also in novels, paintings, homewares, garments, industrial parks, diets, and PR strategies. Given the recent rise of nationalist and populist movements around the world, Unknown States asks how these fictions might be dissected, revised, and rewritten—not only to question the bonds imposed by nations, but to facilitate radically different ways of understanding and organizing people.

The first installment of the issue includes essays, fictions, and songs that address Potemkin homelands; the roots of white nationalism in ancient fraternal orders; imaginary friends and European countries; the inheritance of Italian fascism; the fictionalization of exiles from a militarized island in the Indian Ocean; and stories of statelessness told through song and stone. The issue is introduced with an essay by Triple Canopy senior editor Matthew Shen Goodman. Contributors include Elizabeth Schambelan; Nina Yargekov (translated by Daria Chernysheva); André Naffis-Sahely; Natasha Soobramanien and Luke Williams; and Karthik Pandian and Andros Zins-Browne with Zakaria Almoutlak, Aliana de la Guardia, and Ganavya Doraiswamy.

More contributions will be published—and public programs announced—in the coming weeks. We look forward to reading, listening, viewing, and thinking with you.

06/09/2021

How might the story of a life be told through song? How might collective improvisation act as a vessel for endless variation, remaking tradition, and retelling old stories (in order to imagine new ones)?

Tomorrow, June 10, at 5:30 p.m. EDT, the artists Karthik Pandian and Andros Zins-Browne will address these questions in a virtual conversation, listening session, and concert with Hanif Abdurraqib, a writer (and, most recently, author of A Little Devil in America: Notes in Praise of Black Performance), and Ganavya Doraiswamy, a singer and performer. The event will be presented in conjunction with the publication of a related audiovisual work—previewed here—by Pandian and Zins-Browne with Zakaria Almoutlak, Aliana de la Guardia, and Doraiswamy in our twenty-seventh issue, which launches tomorrow.

In case you missed it: all six episodes of the first season of our new podcast, Medium Rotation, are now available. The first season, Omniaudience, emerges from a public engagement residency of the same name at the Hammer Museum . The six episodes ask how we understand ourselves and others through listening—and what the obstacles to listening reveal about our society.

Co-hosts Nikita Gale and Alexander Provan speak with—and present compositions, monologues, and oral histories by—Harmony Holiday, Derica Shields, Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste, and Tashi Wada. Topics include: the revelation of arena concerts; the relationship between Black music (and silence) and legacies of enslavement and segregation; the welfare state as experienced by Black people and listening as a means of combating stigma; technologies that muddle the distinction between human- and machine-made music; the uses and abuses of bass (as a way to repulse people or bring them together); and the role of the music industry in determining whose voices are amplified and whose are silenced.

Listen wherever you get your podcasts.
