Hapticality or Love

Key words:

How do we care for each other in these times of pandemic isolations? When the borders and social distancing are locking us in our own bodies forced to be detached in the small bordered units prohibiting us to meet the other. Hapticality is denied by the only contact we have through screens. We need to touch, to feel the other and through the other. In their book Undercommons  Fred Moten and Stefano Harney draw on the theory and practice of the black radical tradition as it supports, inspires, and extends contemporary social and political thought and aesthetic critique. Or as Denise Ferreira da Silva writes : "In this intimate and intense example of affected writing—writing which is always already other, with an other—Harney and Moten dare us to fall." Rereading Undercommons in isolation is to recall the hapticallity within the other.
