Intimacy Across Divisions
In this chapter, the author explores how the intimate emerges through the face and speaks across unbridgeable gaps. Drawing on his multiple-channel video installation Nothing Is Missing, the author addresses the encounter with faces as negotiated universality as well as the tension between intimacy and the consequences of globalization. He also uses the combination of motherhood and migration to reflect on the confrontation between globalization and intimacy against the backdrop of a nonoppositional binary of singularity and universality. Through a discussion of Nothing Is Missing, the author examines the meanings of the act of facing as they relate to intimacy on terms that allow for the strategic use of universalism (“motherhood”) as well as for the foregrounding of differences (“migration”).
