DIALÉCTICA DE LA FELICIDAD A COMIENZOS DEL SIGLO XXI

I am not usually very clear about where a project is going when I start it. And it was no different when I started Dialéctica de la felicidad. There was an idea of a territory that would be brought into conflict and, in this case, it was the relationship between discontent and crisis. Two words are enough to start a game of relationships, which becomes a gateway for a series of materials (copy, imagery) all scattered around each other at the outset like a gathering where nobody knows anybody else. That is when—during intertextual analysis of the material—the purpose appears. This procedural work is not only important for determining the direction of the project, it is the project itself, as neither images nor copy offer themselves up openly. It is not that they contain a hidden truth that has to be uncovered, but the reading and relating of the material moves it away from mere ideas and reactivates it in the shape of specific components with which you can start to work (Pablo Marte, 2018)
