Black Lens : Meteorizations (Humble Derives from Humus) : Amilcar Cabral’s Materialist Heritage

[Paris 10e • France]

 

Escaping, hiding, fighting from the shadows: Opacity, transmission and toxicity

 

A reading of Amílcar Cabral’s agronomic writings exposes the substrata of a syntax for liberation later performed in guerrilla language and struggle. It is a timely reminder in troubled times, a commoning of the humble — reclaiming soil as a rhizosphere rich in animated beings and inscriptions of oppression. A place to return to in order to regenerate a future multitude that was divided through the violent engineering of the Capitalocene. This take, on Amílcar Cabral’s agency as an agronaut, ventures through his soil cosmologies, mesologies, meteorizations, atmos-lithos conflict zones, celluloid compost, imperial consumptions — the sugar question. It matters what matters matter matters.
