RED: History and Temporality

This pamphlet explores primal history, natural history, formal methodologies, and (meta)histories of progress and catastrophe. It is prefaced with an email from Puerto Rico, written in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, a reminder of the politics of natural history. The pamphlet then moves to a discussion of the architectonics of the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris where Benjamin worked on The Arcades Project, sheltering from the catastrophe of the world outside. It then turns to utopian plants, women in mirrors, obscure allegories and defamiliarised angels, locomotives with screaming brakes, ruffles on dresses and wrinkled hands. The pamphlet ends with an appendix of appendices.
