“RETCONNED” by Luis Enrique Zela Koort


In “Retconned,” Luis Enrique Zela-Koort recombines economic, biological and industrial flow charts of contemporary society in order to map the flows of modern desire there where it becomes flesh, and also machine. But in the process of depicting these flows, there is also a promise: to liberate desire itself, of intervening in its flows, of offering a different future (and present). We could call this exercise hyperstition: that, by virtue of fiction itself, of showing how things also are and could be, reality is altered, like a self-fulfilling prophecy, an exercise in retrocontinuity.
