Culture has failed, only occultures remain for us. In the singular, this term points towards a fertile field of fusion between cultural practices and heterogeneous explorations of the occult and of the act of hiding as possibilities for being. An occulture is an ecosystem sheltered by a shadow conducive to the emergence of life-forms that would not be viable under direct sunlight. Bearing in mind that social spaces for cultural practices have been incorporated to the production of spectacles whose defining trait, according to Debord, is the certainty that “what appears is good and what is good appears,” it may be time for us to inquire into those spaces of sheltering and secrecy where life, action and practice can still derive from and establish operations that muddy and undo the dynamics of capitalist realism.
