The idea of “departing from the desert—ecology on the border” aims to measure itself in the established geo-historical context. The purpose is to present itself as a weak language (Delez) within the biennial system and pass it. The Archeology of Knowledge (Foucault) method responds to the urgency of the contemporary world (not only China).
