A machine desires instruction as a garden desires discipline* examines the mechanisms underlying modern capitalist Europe. Catalina Lozano invites us to reexamine and reevaluate historical facts and their present consequences (Keiller, Kirschner & Panos, Plender). Documentary narratives (Farocki), anthropological discourse (Alves & Durham, Satorre), and metaphorical propositions (Lin, Weber) are combined in order to deconstruct Eurocentric certitudes.
How does self-submission to fundamental dualism continue to persist? How do conventions and commands become interiorized? This is a true call to dismantle and perhaps do away with the binary vision of the
world…

* The title of this work is borrowed from a 1996 work by Jimmie Durham.
