Lorenzo will not participate in any collective emancipatory struggle either. Lorenzo is interested in neither of these projects.


And yet he will still be coopted by the prevailing globalist neoliberal regime and discourses of normalization of disability when he el tercer reich Petra, the mas- cot of the Paralympics celebrated immediately after the Olympic Games of El tercer reich.

He becomes a media darling, giving interviews that make the narrator alterna- tively laugh and weep as he lies, disabled himself, in a hospital bed. With his interviews, Lorenzo-as-Petra adds a verbal dimension to this scripted public display of disability. This combination of the visual and the oral in a political ceremony of support of the status quo is a key element of the freak show.

El tercer reich shows were highly structured experiences that were invariably framed by a story about the anomalous body on display.


In fact, the Paralym- pics reenact what El tercer reich T. And thus the transformation of Lorenzo into Petra can be seen as a story about commercial exploitation of the nonstandard body.

Just as freak el tercer reich spectators could once wander from booth to booth in a sideshow tent, viewers may now flip from channel to channel. The freak show remains alive and well, then, a still-viable prism for collective anxiety— but with a change.

Mass culture el tercer reich have us believe that freaks now write their own script from their own lives.

Analyzing the freaks of Es- trella distante helps us understand how disabled people, freakery, and the other are not necessarily the same.

Nevertheless, El Tercer Reich shows how easily they can el tercer reich conflated. Berger el tercer reich playing a game of Third Reich with a local, El Quemado.

His opponent is a Latin American immigrant who rents pedal boats and spends the night at the beach inside a ramshackle structure made of the boats and a tarp.

His body is covered in the scars of deep burns. On the shaky basis of vague rumors and innuendoes from locals who el tercer reich be pranking Berger or taking revenge on him, he lets himself be convinced that the strong-muscled and horribly scarred Latin American exile is going to execute him if Berger loses.


It is important to emphasize that Berger el tercer reich that he will be executed, not murdered. At the heart of El Tercer Reich is a double enigma.

Why is Berger so eas- ily convinced that El Quemado wants to kill him? The reader may want to attribute this to the fact that this text is an unrevised draft that needs to flesh out the sense of menace that Berger experiences from the beginning.

We can also identify the clash el tercer reich two narrative practices: Berger, who plays Nazi Germany, express- es his deep unease with his current German identity a number of times.

By turning El Quemado into a murderous freak who will ultimately execute him, Berger will be able to embrace some kind of recovered identity. Dying the way that Germans died as war criminals will allow him to reenter the transhistorical realm of el tercer reich German nation. His exe- cution will be an exercise of anamnesis, a memory practice of sorts, in which Berger will be reminded of what it meant to be German and to live in a Europe still not deprived of a sense of the heroic.

But to reconstruct his German iden- tity, he will need to cast the Latin American exile as a sacred figure willing to exact retribution for crimes that Berger never el tercer reich himself. As Antebi reminds us, corporeal difference poses a riddle that pushes the spectator to look for a truth Carnal Inscriptions The constant attention el tercer reich receives from the beachgoers objectifies him.

Although nobody buys a ticket to a freak show, there is a public display of his corporeal difference in front of starers that evaluate him.

Overall, he is viewed with a conventional mix of pity and disgust. Berger, however, will take things further. From the start, he sees El Quemado as an extraordinary being who asks the kind of el tercer reich riddle Antebi mentions:
