02.11.2022 h. 08.56 right before breakfast, with some coffee on the table writing fro Switzerland, ◯ Comp(h)osting Words I am thinking of these days, concepts I am learning or I encounter through my readings: critical spatial practice (Jane Rendell), comp(h)osting (I have to write something about this – it feels meaningful), hosting, critical care (Elke Krasny), hospitality, boundaries, commitment. 04.09.2022 h. 12.03 right with the bell ringing ◯ Undisciplined "Undiscipline practice is too busy with proliferating sensibilities, issues, demands, requests, complains, entanglements, methods, and questions to bother with the inherent etiquette of disciplinarity. It insists on a mode of thinking and making that is situated and ad.hoc. It is anti-solutionist and motivated by the need for rigorous uncalibrtion and disobedient action research." from Femke Snelting in "Making Matters" by Janneke Wasseling and Florian Cramer (eds.) 22.07.2022 h 13.11 before lunch ◯ violent death El critoleo del corpo fracassao – Litànie a la memoria de Pier Paolo Pasolini, Biagio Marin beautiful title, eng.

Is care always intentional? 19.06.2022 h 15.00 just finished to read Il paesaggio è un mostro by Annalisa metta ◯ lotta "La parola singola agisce solo quando ne incontra una seconda che la provoca, la costringe a uscire dai binari dell'abitudine, a scoprirsi nuove capacità di significare.
