“THE ONLY POSSIBLE RELATIONSHIP TO TIME  TODAY IS A CRIMINAL ONE."- Drenched Co.


Notes:  "I am with Boedi, doing fugitive work, on fugitive time, with errant fugitive moments on the run in the present. I am with Boedi, returning like the dead,  setting the present against some history that isn't regret, to remind us of yesterday's sense of tomorrow. I am with Boedi, as he folds, as he multiplies, as he pilfers a pause into the now, and future nows, stitching it through with repetition of drawn lines and captured light. I am with Boedi, the outlaw, as he counts the returns of history from death to life instead of life to death, his hands in multiple registers, thieving time into time marking the return of the dispossessed, the refugee and the immigrant. I am with Boedi! " - Raj

The quote above references Fred Moten and Stefano Harney's all capitals quote “THE ONLY POSSIBLE RELATIONSHIP TO THE UNIVERSITY TODAY IS A CRIMINAL ONE.” from their important book, 'The Undercommons'.
