MANSUR CAO, Nara et al. Textures. Recial [online]. 2023, vol.14, n.23, pp.236-290.  Epub 30-Jun-2023. ISSN 2718-658X.

In this selection, we bring together different productions that speak of Havana with a singular grammar, an atlas-texture that integrates images, knowledge, and languages. From photography, documentaries, music, cinema, performance or theater, we organize a montage of images that will collaborate to the task of unarchiving and reinventing a city. Therefore, we envision not only a space to talk "about" literature, but also an archive of multiple materialities. Within them, readers will discover a collection of six artistic materials - carefully chosen for this exhibition - that go beyond the generic boundaries of poetry (Nara Mansur), narrative (Martha Luisa Hernández), plastic arts and muralism (Yulier P), photography (Kaloian Santos), scenic performance, theater, or the preservation of demolished buildings (Habitar el gesto and Documental urbano de la fiebre) transforming into methods of intervening, emptying, and renaming Havana. The combination of these materials calls for a reconnection with the heterogeneous, complex, and sinuous materiality of the city, enabling exploration through the solidified layers of the visual archive to question how the city becomes a body and bodies interact - walking, discarding, piercing, inscribing. In this way, the textures shape the city's assembly, a craftsmanship that is both unique and communal, that is not exclusively based on human form-factor, but rather executed in a heterogeneous way (non-anthropocentric) utilizing the actions, sounds and knowledge of the sea, wind, trees, burials, and manufactured columns.
