Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos!

Antena is a language justice and language experimentation collaborative.

Antena does writing, art- and book-making, translating, interpreting, and language justice.

Antena views aesthetic practice as part and parcel of language justice work.

Antena explores how critical views on language can help us to reimagine and rearticulate the worlds we inhabit.

Shouts Out

...one of the most radical and radically inclusive experiments in literature I have had THE GREAT FORTUNE to witness in my lifetime. It was almost like SHELLSHOCK at first. It was almost too incredible to believe. You just wanted to weep from the possibilities it forecasts. THE POSSIBILITIES for all of us. That radical arm is for everyone. And Jen and John have lovingly put together something that admits and embraces the universal usefulness of literature. CA Conrad
Peoples who do not know each other should get to know one other in a hurry, like those who are about to struggle side by side. José Martí, poet and Cuban independence fighter
When interpretation was absent or of poor quality, I was either excluded from the conversation altogether or left with struggling to comprehend through a murky curtain. To the contrary, when the interpretation was strong, I felt what it was like to be fully present, engaged and included, even though I was a stranger to the primary language of the gathering. The contrast between these two positions — being marginalized from the conversation or carried into the heart of it — was like night and day. —Fran Ansley, law professor, immigrant rights and labor rights activist
Seeing things, the alternative seeing of things, the seen and seeing alternative, which a certain deployment of crisis is meant to police, is the crisis of genuine disclosure and generative disruption. Fred Moten
What good is art when people everywhere don’t have enough to eat? —M., member of Revolutionary Autonomous Communities, a mutual aid food organization in MacArthur Park, Los Angeles
