think that we are at a time of realizing that globalizing
forces always to be thought in a dynamic with localizing forces.
There is really never one or the other, but a kind of oscillation
between the two. There are all kinds of contexts for figuring
this dynamic, from the cultural to the economic to the militaristic.
Artistic and cultural practices can offer a kind of illicit
traffic across the borders, conducting exploratory ventures
into the realm of the symbolic."
