Wait Forty Years: Innu Women’s Resistance to Plan Nord

17 Jul 2013, Posted in Articles, Short FUSE, 0 Comments

Whenever anyone speaks about the Plan Nord, territory, ancestral rights, the eyes of children haunt me. Are we going to leave fifty more years of struggle for the next generation? If we do not act now to preserve the future for our children and refuse the Plan Nord, it will destroy our territory. — Denise Jourdain

The See by Jessica MacCormack

Jessica MacCormack’s The See delivers me back to my childhood, and to my childhood feelings. My individual illogical logic, overlapping explanations, memories and dreams. Intense isolation and longing, mixing pain in with everyday life. — Sarah Mangle

Another Atlas

Critical analysis of the traditional functions of mapping has grown significantly in recent years, such that acknowledging maps as politically subjective cultural artefacts, and map-making as an act of imperialism, will seem quite obvious. — Milena Placentile

Making it Work — All Ecologies Have Predators

26 Jun 2013, Posted in Articles, Column, 0 Comments

“What does it mean for arts institutions to be small, withdrawn, repetitive, vulnerable and maladjusted?” At first, I thought the answer might be demonstrated by the workings of any number of Toronto’s artist-run centres. The question evoked a condition common to local artist-run spaces: tongue-in-cheek submission and resistance to bureaucratic demands and financial precarity. — Maiko Tanaka

The reports of our cultural deaths have always been greatly exaggerated.

Next to losing the land, I cannot think of a factor that more threatens our collective existence as Indigenous peoples than no longer being able to talk our talk. —Chelsea Vowel

As we follow the artists on their hunts in Modest Livelihood, it’s unclear whether they’re showing us a way of life in which either feels entirely at home. They may well identify strongly with their ancestral livelihoods, but that matters little for how these films play out. — Lucas Freeman

Cannibalized Images

This is, in essence, the story of a single photograph. The image, a group portrait of six individuals accused of cannibalism during the brutal Soviet famine of 1920–22, has been used by historians as a mute testament to the horrors of the Russian Civil War and the period of War Communism. A closer look at the photograph, however, reveals that it is hardly a transparent document. —Kathleen Tahk

Close Readings — Marie Watt at the Tacoma Art Museum

Marie Watt has located her career in the middle of a deceptively perilous intersection. Not a simple four-way stop, but one of those multispoke Parisian intersections with lanes of traffic wide and narrow converging from all directions. This fact isn’t immediately evident. The work does not beat you over the head with audacity; her signature materials — reclaimed blankets — are comfortably familiar and the hand that manipulates them is clearly guided by a sensibility that is gentle, thoughtful and refined. — Richard William Hill

36-3/Editorial

In this issue of FUSE, we queer the notion of apocalypse and examine the kinds of practices either engendered or obscured by apocalyptic mindsets. While apocalypticism is ostensibly about the impending future, what concerns us here is the type of present it fosters. While we are busy predicting and preparing for a variety of elaborately imagined disasters, what are we are building in the present?
