The Winter issue of frieze d/e features Édouard Glissant’s final statement on Opacity – in the first English and German translations, taken from his last book of essays Philosophie de la Relation (Philosophy of the Relation, 2009).
‘Why must we evaluate people on the scale of the transparency of ideas proposed by the West? … As far as I’m concerned, a person has the right to be opaque.’
Édouard Glissant (1928–2011)
Curator and critic Ulrich Loock takes stock of Glissant’s legacy in contemporary art theories and practices.
