INDEXING MY MONOLOGUE, 2020, video excerpt









INDEXING MY MONOLOGUE merges and redacts the English language, its institutional records, teaching, and control of bodies within the context of US immigration history. The video reflects on language and its relations to power, diaspora, and translatability by blurring the lineages of pedagogy, bureaucracy, and literature. The work indexes towards opacity and imagined bibliographies.
