At face value, the term “survivance” invokes, but suggests something more than mere survival or subsistence. Deconstructed, sur-vivance divulges a bursting forth of life. Sur: above and beyond, rhyming in intent with hyper, meta, super. Vivance: the French take on the Latin root for vitality, vigor, and vivaciousness. Thus, survivance: hyper vitality, super vigor. Surviving as thriving. Thriving as surviving.
Survivance is a collaboration between the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and e-flux Architecture. Editors Nick Axel, Natchee Blu Barnd, Black Quantum Futurism, Lindsay Bremner, Nikolaus Hirsch, Lesley Lokko, Amba J. Sepie, Troy Conrad Therrien.
