This spring, different forms of reading, writing practices and literature gain prominence in the Museo with a second Temporary Intensity Zone (TIZ) opening under the title, aligned with the ideas of poet and historian Ángel González, Escribir sin tener ni idea (Writing With No Idea).
González asserted that art works autonomously from the art theory that attempts to explain it: thus, art is “knowledge that knows as long as it is doing”, but “not what it is saying”. Consequently, “writing with no idea” refers to writing that knows but at the same time does not know and serves different users and people working with literature. Through different textual practices, in the chasm of words or in the Möbius strip that unfolds before the world, “writing with no idea” can entail “writing well”, even very well, but also “writing against”. Thus, “idealess writing” is writing situated in reality before Literature with a capital L and is woven in the loom of many flows of meaning that traverses all language, opposite its privatisation at the service of norms, classes, technocracies and interests.
Writing With No Idea looks to explore how words, narrative, can expand beyond literature and towards new territories of artistic creation and reflection of thought in the contemporary world.
