‘Acts of Translation’ takes a position against the idea of translation as derivative. Instead, it proposes that the act of translation serves not the original but the liberation and release of its potential. Translation changes the original beyond its initial state, revealing or producing the translatability that is its ‘essence’. Translation becomes an entanglement that has no beginning or end, but is something that is always tentative, approximate, and incomplete.
