Ecofascism & Migration in the Americas

This talk will be focusing on the context of Central and North America, this talk examines practices rooted in eco-fascist interpretations of migration movements and migrants. To do this, I study contemporary art and literature that expose, defy, and interrogate dangerous and wide-spread eco-fascist narratives.

Fiamma di Montezemolo

In this video-essay contemplative images, confessions, theoretical reflections, and an enigmatic electronic musical motif merge to form a meditation on border life between the United State & Mexico. Based on both years of ethnographic work in Tijuana and an ascetic shooting schedule of 24hrs, the artist and anthropologist refracts her own experience in the region by attempting to sculpt a textured living portrait of the Wall that separates Tijuana and San Diego. Images of a rusty wall, unruly topography, decaying surveillance structures, furtive moments of undocumented migrant crossings, and dystopian landscapes are interwoven with a mournful voice-over enunciated from a different time and place.
