Toronto Experimental Translation Collective is
Benjamin de Boer
Combining the formats of seminars, workshops, and performances, the Toronto Experimental Translation Collective (TETC) renegotiates relationships within and across languages and media.
We use methods of homophonics, transcription, field recording, algorithmic distortion, and cross-disciplinary hybridity to create spaces for heterotopic pedagogy.
The texts, recordings, and performances produced document our unlearning of prior assumptions around communication.
These activities develop strategies for withdrawal from the instrumentalization of language systems. In addressing the hegemonic power of major languages, TETC brings to the fore language’s potential in play and protest.
