Abstract (English)

"Monique Wittig’s 1969 novel Les Guérillères envisions the aftermath of a violent war of the sexes in a future where women have toppled the patriarchy. Santiago Muñoz’s work That which identifies them, like the eye of the cyclops, takes Wittig’s text as source of inspiration. Her three-channel video installation follows a group of real women—all friends and collaborators of the artist’s in her community in and around San Juan, Puerto Rico—as they tend to farm animals, play music, and occupy protest sites at government buildings, not as a speculative vision about what might be, but as a provocation of how an imagined future can be actualized in the present." -- Puplisher's website.
