un abrazo for Marc&Christina!

Very important your commentary about migrations in America.
Is really very important.
I was 8 months last year in germany.
strongs feelings there, and one of them was the question about migration in argentina. 
Catholic - Jewuis traditions are very strong tradition in argentina, they are in the "heart" of our mixed / mestiza society.
Black people was killed, as slaves or "soldiers" during the war against Paraguay.

I imagine that protestant / calvinist, also paganismus is working in the migrations of North America.

Because of all this "migrations" I like very much to know more about pre-hispanic cultures in America. Is a central part of my investigation with artistic methods.

Very good the images of insite05!!!!! I like this! Thank you very much!

The last part of your mail is a very good devolution,
I can say 
YES YES YES, "we" CAN identify 
material conditions that need to be addressed 
without representing other! 

Because we will present them together,
like the blood of Genova in your mail. 
Those red material conditions(saddly)are present.

For me is really a big challenge to identify these "material conditions"
that have still a potence living or able to live.
My Walking Archives / Archivo Caminante tries to do this, not for putting them "in order", but to transport.

You are true Cara!!! precarity and starvation are central questions today.
In argentina, post-industry don't mean nothing. We didn't have NEVER a real national industry. Is post-nothing. 
but then... your question is also our question.
