Do observation (!) and question (?) notes for both Suheir Hammad’s poem “Exotic” and the selection from Sarita Echavez See “An Open Wound: Angel Shaw and Manuel Ocampo” in The Decolonized Eye : Filipino American Art and Performance. Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press. pp.1-9 [38-44 in the book version].
Brief, beautiful sentences. Two observations. Two questions.
Also notes on this key question which we’ll discuss in class: Why does See argue that the performance artists choose to speak with the body instead of language, logic, and official archives?
By Monday 8pm.
