“At some crisis times like this one” writes Lauren Berlant, “politics is defined by a collectively held sense that a glitch has appeared in the reproduction of life. A glitch is an interruption within a transition, a troubled transmission. A glitch is also the revelation of an infrastructural failure.” Recent events have exposed weak structures and in facing their flimsy nature, it is becoming urgent to summon a form of infrastructural imagination that would be applied to the repair or rethinking of what holds and regulates our forms of life in common.

The dialogue between Céline Condorelli and June Crespo is an attempt to call for the type of imagination that brings infrastructure to the fore. Their work functions as a poetics, an aesthetic and a politics of support. What is to be seen is what sustains, that which holds together, the conditions that make a relationship possible, either in a literal sense – a material confluence – or in an affective or conceptual sense.
