GIORGI, Artur de Vargas. Dust, polvo, people: archaeologies of monstrosity. ARS (São Paulo) [online]. 2016, vol.14, n.27, pp.107-122. ISSN 1678-5320.

This short essay juxtaposes some figures of what might be called a people. If certain aesthetic experiences - visual and literary - tend to homogenize the effect of such nomination, crystallizing it a priori or as result of a synthesis that would appease its heterogeneity - its monstrous aspect -, others give power to its unrepresentable singularity. Here, the texture of the fragments doesn't represent a totality, although elects a number of figures. The meaning of people shows itself subjected to tensions which, after all, concede an ethical and a critical position of the counting of voices that is always unequal, exclusive, but pretend to be inclusive and democratic.

Palavras-chave : people; dust; archaeology; monstrosity; contemporary.
