The back cover: “In the 1970s, when we asked “who speaks?”, we were questioning the legitimacy of forms of authority, identity politics, science and its procedures, representative institutions, and even the history of cinema or literature. But today, in the age of the Anthropocene, the silent voice of the world has caught up with humans. Asking the question “Who is speaking?” nowadays means to enlarge the stage of knowledge and politics to all those who, because they do not have the ability to speak, were not included – animals, plants, objects or machines. Aliocha Imhoff and Kantuta Quirós answer this question with a manifesto for a politics of silence that is also a cartography of its possible means: that of the processes of translation, of the new forms of citizenship, of eco-diplomacy, of attention or spokesmanship with which activists, artists and thinkers seek to give a voice to what has none.”
