This stable is now infiltrated and taken over by a poetic resistance reacting to (and against) the antibacterial soap that has tried to whitewash these walls in order to eliminate the unwanted and keep the illusion of a strict distance between humans and nature. The KRÆ Syndicate works in extension of the crumbling contemporary belief that the basic democratic and humanistic structures established by Modernism has led to war, camps, and walls that divide bodies between life and death as its ultimate consequence. At the same time the basic conditions for life on our planet is threatened by the same growth and productiveness that was meant to secure its maintenance. The KRÆ Syndicate work with the connections between death in culture and the representation of the radical other; the refugee, the creature, the weed, the violence, the grotesque, the bacteria, naked life: […]
