Red lines mark the out of bounds of the squash court, forming an odd horizon that signals the limits of the playing field. Instead of facing one another on opposing sides, the players share the same space; they challenge the same wall: their game culminates in a perpetually concussed flirtation of rubber balls with the out-of-bounds.
The riso-print zine accompanies the sixth show at Squash Editions—a series of exhibitions hosted within a squash court in Santa Maria La Ribera, Mexico City. An “anthology” of texts and images by artists and writers is published alongside theory and other literary and visual formats that speak to ecstatic queer temporalities, arranged as excerpts and fragments, in English and Spanish.
“To see queerness as horizon is to perceive it as a modality of ecstatic time in which the temporal stranglehold that I describe as straight time is interrupted or stepped out of. Ecstatic time is signaled at the moment one feels ecstasy, announced perhaps in a scream or grunt of pleasure, and more importantly during moments of contemplation when one looks back at a scene from one’s past, present, or future.” (José Esteban Muñoz, Cruising Utopia, 2009)
