Miguel Ventura, How Shall I Love You My New Little One? (still), 2001.

Join us on e-flux Video & Film for an online screening of Miguel Ventura’s How Shall I Love You, My New Little One? (2001), streaming from Wednesday, July 7 through Tuesday, July 20, 2021.

How should I Love You, My New Little One? tells the story of a patient, the artist himself, who, with the help of his child therapist, hopes to overcome his weakness and transform his disease into something useful for the post-revolutionary society. The healing process involves eating thirty glyph-shaped cookies which will impregnate the patient with a new language.

How should I Love You My New Little One? is presented here as one of four films in Part Two | Gendering, Disgendering, Transgendering, the second of four programs in the online series Me, You, and Everyone We Know: Interrelationality, Alterity, Globalization programmed by Irmgard Emmelhainz for e-flux Video & Film. The series will run in four thematic parts from June 23 through August 18, 2021. Each part will include a two-week group screening, and a live discussion. 

Miguel Ventura (b. 1954, San Antonio, Texas) has been living and working in Mexico City since 1977. He has developed a body of work creating a new world with its own races and languages: NILC (New Inter-Territorial Language Committee). His atypical social model is presented through a series of video installations, objects, music, paintings, and drawings—employing parody and ridicule in order to label everyday patterns of societal behavior. His earlier work referred to notions of innocence, sexuality, and masculinity. In recent years, Ventura has reinterpreted symbols of the past—such as the swastika—in order to discuss current practices in the neoliberal world of finance, government, and art. His solo exhibitions include Oratorio de Arte Contemporáneo Neoliberal at the museum of the city of Queretaro (2011); Cantos Cívicos, un proyecto de NILC en colaboración con Miguel Ventura at the University Museum of Contemporary Art (MUAC), Mexico City (2008) and at the Espai d’art contemporani de Castelló, Castellon, Spain (2007); Como he amarte mi pequeñín? at El Ojo Atómico, Madrid (2005); The P.M.S. Dilemma at Carrillo Gil Art Museum, Mexico City (2002); and The New Fuck Me Little Daddy House at Museum of Mexico City, Flatland Gallery, and Impakt Festival in Utrecht (1999).
