Donald Trump’s Wet Dream: The Frontrera Tech Noir Landscape of Alex Rivera’s Sleep Dealer (2008)

A public lecture with Felipe Quetzalcoatl Quintanilla

Alex Rivera’s cyberpunk dystopia, Sleep Dealer (2009), envisions a nightmarish near-future mapped across the imagined border spaces of Tijuana/San Diego. This is a 
scenario that is only made possible through a full commitment to the militarization and corporatization of the American nation-state, but most importantly, through the
mainstreaming of a new cyberwork medium, facilitating, in turn, the crossing of labor sans the originating brown bodies.

The particularity of Rivera’s vision lies in the imagining of a futuristic scenario we can only term as Donald Trump’s wet dream, where the body of the putative wetback no longer
crosses into the body politic of the nation.

Date: Thursday, October 6th, 2016

Time: 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Location: Panorama Room Lower Commons

Open to the public. If you are in need of a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this event, please call Dr. Bibiana Diaz at 537- 3670 to make arrangements prior to Oct. 3rd, 2016.
