Can the Subaltern Speak?
MACBA, Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona
This book is a translation of Can the Subaltern Speak? by Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, one of the texts that marked a turning point in post-colonial theory and contemporary theory in general. Manuel Asensi Pérez has translated the text and accompanied it with a critical apparatus consisting of notes that aim to make this cryptic debate accessible to general readers.
Paradox by Gerard Unger and FF Balance by Evert Bloemsma are the fonts used to give voice to Spivak’s text and Manuel Asensi Pérez’s comments, respectively.
