an a-z beginner's guide to south america

as any other political entity, south america is a fiction, an imagined object (which is not to say false) appearing in the individual and collective consciousness as a game of intertextuality. each of us is expected to construct this fictive object for herself, and failing to do so is a serious political crime.
an a-z beginner's guide to south america aims at playfully engaging the texts we build our south america(s) from, in the attempt to explore the often obscured discursive processes that ground our socio-political "realities".
the project will comprise a minimum of 26 works, one for each letter of the english alphabet, that will be uploaded in different online locations, with a complete list of links available here.
you are welcome to propose your own deconstructed south america by sending us the link and any additional information at postoffice@dalpofzs.com

finished in august 2017
