This thesis takes as its departure point the critique of the onto-epistemic coloniality of power that contests all forms of Eurocentrism, but rather than diagnosing a state of occidentosis or prescribing a de-Westernization process (as, for example, a certain decolonial theoretical matrix has done in recent years), it identifies, via a transatlantic logic elaborated from Latin America, an Other West: not the hegemonic paradigm of modern European thought and its supposed heterodox reception on this side of the Atlantic, but the lineage of a plebeian and vernacular Europe which has produced figures who disrupted the assumptions—techno-rationalist, eugenic, political, aesthetic, etc.—of 20th-century Western modernity. To this end, this dissertation will concentrate its efforts on the Latin American theoretical and creative reception of work produced by Pier Paolo Pasolini, Paul Celan, and the Bauhaus School of Design, problematizing issues such as the anthropological destruction of vernacular cultures in the hands of the consumerist standardization inherent to industrial society; the petrochemical economy of subjectivation; the differential—catechretic—condition of a transatlantic Jewishness; the poem as a heterotopic space for philosophical controversy in the face of historical abjection; and the capacity of ruin as a device for a critique of infrastructural modernity as exported from Europe.
