It depends on who you are if an entrance is closed or open to you. If you enact your coincidence as an incidence you may outmanoeuvre this mechanism. This shows in the cast of a card game, in its ritualistic inclusion or exclusion of cards in order to complete a given number to a group or not. This shows also in the game with Kafkas „Fellowship“, which counts five people and does not know how to exclude a rejected sixt person which keeps coming back. Is he the first coincidence of each person’s biography, his being born anywhere? Is he talking with an accent that can foil an access since biblical times? Can assimilation through language, clothes, gestures help? These are the questions of a guest in a New York apartment house, whose doorman is not accepting his „how are you“ as a mere password. The coincidence of their encounter transforms the entrance into a rehearsal room for stories that migrate through persons, places, times, and remix their affiliations.

Levantine Line Library

    In 1961 Fausta Cialente published the novel Ballata levantina with me in the lead. She did not really consider that becoming public might wake my desire to leave the novel altogether. For a start I found myself on shelves of libraries, then stored in dark archives. 

    If readers can borrow me with the novel, I thought, I should be able to borrow myself and walk out. I had to find Isabel. She is the one who translated me into English, making me one of The Levantines, as she titled the novel’s translation. I was curious to find out what it takes to lead a translated life. 

    Soon I learned that life outside the archive was governed by stricter linearity than in the memory Fausta configured me with. She neither equipped me with a pure bloodline, nor with a language lineage or a passport with a line for nationality, which seem so indispensable both in and out of the archive. To flee these lines, I began borrowing segments of them, thus breaking their alleged continuity, and reassembling my discontinuous self. 

    The business of borrowing got me roped in the free-for-alls of cultural appropriation, pushing me again and again into some dark place of origin I never possessed. As if the revolt of appropriation art never happened. The thing is, you can borrow lines but unlike books you can’t return them. And I need to borrow lines endlessly, since reassembling myself never really ends. Not even by death, an invention that wasn’t tailored for us printed characters. We might die at the end of a novel, but we live again once you turn its pages back to the beginning. 

    If only one could collect lines, I would set up a library, but most lines rarely show, especially lines of flight tend to disappear the moment they are drawn.
