…the potential of productive withdrawals as instances of social and political creativity revamping existing infrastructures and giving shape to new institutional assemblages.
…the understanding of the table as the smallest – injectable – social architecture; to perceive a seating order not as a preset of social relations and invitation to vampirism, but as a caring context to serve different mindsets
and digest agonistic menus.
… service as a strategy of love; to discard any value system which looks at any task that is related to ‘service’ as devalued but instead celebrate it as the strengthening of our capacity to know compassion and deepen our insight.
…the healing of the wounds of binary representations and check box systems and the reclaim of the tools of scarification and branding.
… symbolic overproduction not as a form of escapist formalism and distinction but as a form of empowerment and complexity; to apply an overuse of style which might lead into its contradiction.
…the act of exiting not as an act of passivity; to believe in defection as a modification of the conditions within which the struggle takes place, rather than presupposing those conditions to be an unalterable horizon.
… abject and abjection as safeguards, which billows on the edge of non-existence and hallucination, of a reality that annihilates certainties.
…the process of affirmation and circulation as multi-faced potentials being all additive, subjective, romantic, imaginative, personal, autobiographical, whimsical, narrative, decorative, lyrical, architectural, sculptural, eccentric, local, specific, spontaneous, irra- tional, private, impulsive, gestural, handwritten, handmade, colorful, joyful, obsessive, fussy, funny, funky, vulgar, perverse, mannerist, tribal, rococo, tactile, self-referring, sumptuous, sensuous, salacious, eclectic, exotic, messy, monstrous, complex, ornamen- ted, embroidered, articulated, spatial, light-filled, delicate, warm, open, questioning and sharing.
