M2A(2M...) or a cosmotechnics of (e)viscerality
M2A(2M...) or a cosmotechnics or (e)viscerality is a lecture performance that traces the individuation, distribution, and collectivization of viscerality and its evisceration through the lens of two pills: the 'missile pill' and the cabsulih. Examining the link between Pillcam—a camera ingested to surveil gut health whose origins lie in technologies of Israeli combat—and the cabsulih—a makeshift pill created by Palestinian political prisoners to move their letters, poems, and books across carceral borders by hiding them in the depths of their bowels—M2A(2M...) traces a (patho)physiology of anticolonial resistance and colonial hunger through the visceral fold. In the pursuit of health in illness, and the fight against the illness that is occupation, the work asks that we turn our viscera into a weapon which operate in solidarity with the fight for Palestinian freedom.
An edited version of the transcript, along with a visualizer inspired by the medical graph, is published on Decolonial Hacker under the title A Tale of Two Pills.
