XXXXXXX

XXXXXXX

XXXXXXX is part of a yearlong project of generous relation and episodic publication on borders by Christopher Rey Pérez. Updates appear every month throughout three-month cycles. The first update presents a curated selection of materials, usually involving an excerpt of contemporary writing, an artwork, and a third variable related to books and the experience of reading them. The second update collates disparate annotations that are beginning to amalgamate in resonance with the presented materials. Every 3-month cycle culminates in a third update, which offers an essay that has surfaced from the durational and expansive nature of the project.

This is the first update of the first cycle.

XXXXXXX features original works by Ed Steck and Tala Zeitawi, as well as some images surrounding Claude Lévi-Strauss’ Tristes Tropiques.
