la isla

Instalación cum Performance de Clemente Padín en A MORIR, Sábado 12 de Julio, 2008, de 13 a 17 hs., en Martínez Trueba y Durazno

Almuerzo: Guiso Carcelario

LA ISLA en tanto instrumento de control de la sociedad carcelaria. El castigo que nos espera si no se cumplen las reglas y normas. Marcar el paso. Al parecer todo agrupamiento social exige de leyes para su funcionamiento, es decir, exige una conducta adecuada que autorice el buen desempeño del sistema económico determinante. Todo lo que impida el “normal” ejercicio de las piezas del sistema está condenado al castigo.

Por ello cuando el sistema quiebra, debido a las causas que fueran, se habla de “revolución”, es decir, de la instauración de nuevas normas y procedimientos, de nuevas leyes o “reglas de juego”. Por ello los sistemas suelen establecer mecanismos de control que aseguran la preservación y continuidad de sus procesos. Estos mecanismos, a nivel socio – económico ya fueron estudiados en los 60s. por Althouser, en aquellos libros clásicos que, sin duda, hemos ojeado en nuestras lecturas juveniles.

El tema no es la discusión de si tales leyes son necesarias o no (ello nos retrotraería a mucho tiempo atrás). El tema es cómo se imponen en la sociedad, si por convencimiento o por compulsión. Si es por convicción exige que las leyes sean discutidas y que cada miembro de la sociedad las acepte
convencido de su condición necesaria para poder vivir en sociedad, sin los desbordes de nuestra naturaleza animal.

Así, por su rendimiento y competencia, la coacción que ejerce el castigo por el incumplimiento de las leyes o costumbres es la vía aceptada por casi todas las sociedades. Así, cada miembro de la comunidad, va sufriendo, sucesivamente, la influencia de su familia, el barrio, la escuela, la religión, las normas sociales, el Estado, etc. Los transgresores se le castiga directamente y se les recluye en la cárcel. De tal manera se intenta controlar la conducta de los miembros de la comunidad a través de la coacción y el autoritarismo. Y, cuando falla la ley, la propia sociedad suele imponer sus castigos, cruentos o incruentos.

El penal es una pequeña sociedad que reproduce, palmo a palmo, a la macro sociedad. El poder ejercido por los militares con su cadena de mandos es tan arbitrario como el de las clases adineradas en la nuestra aunque, en ambos casos, la legitimidad del ejercicio del poder devenga del Estado. Las leyes que intentan asegurar el cumplimiento de los plazos de reclusión impuestos por los jueces militares son similares a las de nuestro Código Penal. Y, también, lo son los mecanismos de control dentro de los cuales, LA ISLA, fue la estrella indiscutible del Penal de Libertad, destinado a los presos políticos durante la dictadura cívico-militar en el Uruguay. Este instrumento asegura, en un tiempo mínimo, el mayor de los castigos, tanto físico como psicológico: el aislamiento total, la noche de los tiempos, el silencio de la muerte, la confusión temporal y el desorden espacial propios de la locura, el frío de la soledad, la pérdida del yo…Pero, por sobre todo enseña a “marcar el paso” a los internados, a aceptar y cumplir las reglas arbitrarias que imponía el poder, en aquel caso, de los militares.

the island

Installation cum Performance of Clemente Padín in To DIE, Saturday 12 July, 2008, from 13 to 17 hs., in Martínez Trueba and Durazno, Montevideo, Uruguay

Lunch: Guiso Carcelario

The ISLAND in so much instrument of control of society of jail. The punishment that waits for us or else they are completed the rules and norms. Marking the pass. To the view all social group demands of laws for its operation, that is to say, it demands an adequate conduct that authorizes the good acting of economical dominant system. Everything the one which impedes the "normal" exercise of the pieces of system is convict to punishment.

For it when the system breaks, due to the causes that are, speaks of "revolution", that is to say, of the establishment of new norms and procedures, of new laws or "regulation of game". For it systems are accustomed to establish mechanisms of control that secure the preservation and continuity of its processes. These mechanisms, to level social - economical were already studied in the 60s. by Althouser, in that classical books that, without a doubt, we read in our juvenile readings.

The topic is not the discussion if laws are necessary or not (it would return us to much time behind). Topic is how they are imposed in the society, if for convincing or for compulsion. If for conviction it demands laws are argued and that each member of society accepts them convinced of its necessary condition in order to could live in society, without overflows of our animal nature.

So, for its humility and competition, the compulsion that exercises punishment for the noncompliance of laws or customs are the accepted road for almost all the societies. So, each member of the community goes suffering, successively, the influence of its family, district, school, religion, social norms, State, etc. To those that don't complete the law it discipline you directly and confines them in the jail. It´s the manner are attempted to control the conduct of members of community through compulsion and authority. And, when law fails, society is accustomed to impose its own punishments.

Jail is a small society that reproduces, span to span, to our society. The power exercised by the military with its chain of controls is as arbitrary as the of the wealthy classes in the our although, in both cases, the genuineness of the exercise of come from State. The laws that attempt to secure the execution of the terms of reclusion taxation for the military judge are similar to our Penal Code. THE ISLAND, unquestionable star of Liberty Jail (in Uruguay), was destined to political prisoners during the civic-militar dictatorship (1973-1984). This instrument secures, at one time minimum, the senior of the punishments, as much physics as psychological: total isolation, night of times, silence of death, temporal confusion and spatial disorder of madness, cold of solitude, the loss of self. But, the most importantis to teach to "mark the pass" to the internees, to accept and complete the arbitrary rules that power impose, in that case, of military one. Nowadays there are other means in democracy....
