Malinche

Inspired by the essay Malinche and The End of The World by Franco “Bifo” Berardi in e-flux journal’s The Internet Does Not Exist published by Sternberg Press.

The myth of Malinche tells of a world ended and of a woman caught between two cultures, translating the words of conquerors and the conquered. As a symbol of colonization and cultural subjugation, she represents the loss of an indigenous way of life and the assimilation to the colonizers’ language and values. The myth speaks to the pain of a world lost and the struggle to understand and survive in a new reality.
