Sayak Valencia
from March 12th 2020 to March 12th 2020
Lecture: The Body and Violence as Mass Media Language in Gore Capitalism

A lo largo de esta presentación, Sayak Valencia definirá el capitalismo gore y hablará de cómo se convierte en política snuff en las regiones fronterizas. Utilizará ejemplos de la manera en que los dispositivos audiovisuales y las redes sociales virtuales desafían y remodelan el régimen de la verdad, produciendo una subjetividad biohipermediatizada. De igual manera, examinará las formas en que el cuerpo contemporáneo se ha convertido en una plataforma para la producción de un nuevo lugar común difundido por los medios de comunicación, lo cual provoca cambios marcados en la subjetividad. Valencia analizará las tendencias, las modas, las apropiaciones culturales y corporales que se vuelven virales y que se cristalizan en cuerpos diversos, demostrando al mismo tiempo la influencia de las redes virtuales en la construcción del mundo material.
