With baka as the sense and practice of mistaking one thing/element with another.
As objects can be bought and sold; invested and owned -while ideas are less obvious to do as such. (hence the problems of intellectual properties and claims such as: you can destroy my body, but never the idea from which my life stems from!”)
It occurred to me that my “problems” with Objects are much todo – not all – with the invenstive-aesthetics objects have. eg – The quality that allows owning and selling objects.
This quality of objects, in my mind, lends itself for a rather easily implemented and worst – cultivated – socio-economic and cultural apartheid. Am using apartheid because its about prejudice and using that prejudice to divide and rule. A prejudice against a certain culture, or against a certain socio-economic sequence, and using that prejudice to gain social, cultural and economic advantages which, inevitably, go into politics and distributions of imagination technologies.
I thought that perhaps the usage of “apartheid” in a non south-african context might require some qualifications. Hence here are links to other usages of social, cultural and economic apartheid that are not south-african oriented.
