The activity of research and creation "The archive between poetics, politics, and violence of history" addresses the issues of the archive through a cross-border cycle of meetings and interventions, with the collective creation of an oral online archive of proposals for historical, theoretical and poetic approaches, exchanges and discussions, and the elaboration of an associated documentary corpus.
The proposal takes a look back at recent conflicts and social movements and their genealogies, as they drew new geographies across borders in the context of globalization, from corpora produced in their present and whose Movement of places from south to north, that of the People's Springs, or the transnational feminist movements could give the model.
The temporality of political upheaval is that of a break within the continuity of an abstract, homogeneous and empty time of capital. Conversely, the chronopolitics of capitalism and its dream of global synchronicity find its ultimate realization in the crisis, which has become a mode of governmentality.
What if we take the question from the notion of subjectivity as it relates to an agency, that is to say on politics in a given place and time, according to a point of view that was not interchangeable?
Western political modernity had at the same time excluded any other notion of politics than that in which political activity was rationalized in the State, in a sharing of so–called statesless peoples, also called without history, and others, any other construction than that based on the model of identity and difference and included as its margins the other possible versions of human life.
The starting point of the research is in the expressions of traveling theories which, where a conceptual chain was lacking (exiles, wars, and displacements, situations of subalternization in life, law, and the language, separations), is written in a cartography of narratives where statements and utterances can not be disjointed. These narratives are the concrete syntagms resulting from the encounter, the forms of life, their persistence, and the form of their historicity.
