Machete Group: Dictionary of the Present


Machete Group inaugurated their discussion series with an introduction to their ongoing project, Dictionary of the Present, which revolves around the question of whether there is a set of key terms, events, and images that can help us better understand our present condition. The aim of Machete’s “dictionary” is to point to the ultimately unstable, multivalent, and subjective nature of language. Each subsequent event unpacked a different word.
