Example text

The “democracy of agreements” made consensus its normative guarantee, its operational key, its de-ideologizing ideology, its institutionalized rite, and its discursive trophy. What overflows did the consensus try to limit, in attempting to force a unanimity of voices and conduct related to the formal and technical rationalization of the agreement? An overflowing of names (the dangerous revolt of words that disseminate their heterodox meanings in order to name what is hidden-repressed outside the official networks of designation); an overflowing of bodies and experiences (the discordant ways in which social subjectivities break the ranks of identity normalized by the political script or the publicity spot with its zigzagging imaginary lines of escape); an overflowing of memories (the tumultuous reinterpretations of the past that maintain the memory of history open to an incessant struggle of readings and meanings).

32 The discourse of the social sciences organized the symptoms of the crisis using a language that restored processes and subjects: a language, therefore, incompatible—in its will to rebuild a normativity—with what had been broken, separated, a landscape of divided social and cultural subjectivities. Meanwhile critical texts on art and literature that were contemporaneous to these technical analyses being undertaken by alternative sociology sought to create equivalent expressions that were in tune with the correlation of signs clustered about the categorical disaster of the system of social representation with a language made up of incomplete sentences, errant vocabularies, and unraveling syntax.

What are the first renunciations and surrenders that make L. Arce and M. A. Merino traitors: giving up the first name under torture, or later becoming DINA officers in exchange for their freedom, or their subsequent repeated and complicit efforts to finally be accepted and recognized by the power of the military hierarchy? 6 We never know exactly where the limit of reliability of their repentant words lies, or in which unjudgeable margins of the narrative the testimonial truth of repentance disintegrates.
