Agamben’s idea that the clandestine dimension of private life is the significant political element of individual life pairs with Miguel Ángel Hernández’s thesis expressed in El don de la siesta. According to him, in the era of transparency and hypervisibility, siesta should be a subversive act. Hernández argues that siesta challenges the culture of productivity and constant exposure, offering a refuge for privacy and opening a pause in ordinary time. Through a multidisciplinary approach encompassing art, literature, and social criticism, the author advocates for a conscious type of siesta to reclaim time, body, and private space in an increasingly surveilled world. He sees this habit as an opportunity to redefine the relationship between public and private life, finding moments of evasion and disconnection amidst the frenetic contemporary life.

Abstract

Agamben’s idea that the clandestine dimension of private life is the significant political element of individual life pairs with Miguel Ángel Hernández’s thesis expressed in El don de la siesta. According to him, in the era of transparency and hypervisibility, siesta should be a subversive act. Hernández argues that siesta challenges the culture of productivity and constant exposure, offering a refuge for privacy and opening a pause in ordinary time. Through a multidisciplinary approach encompassing art, literature, and social criticism, the author advocates for a conscious type of siesta to reclaim time, body, and private space in an increasingly surveilled world. He sees this habit as an opportunity to redefine the relationship between public and private life, finding moments of evasion and disconnection amidst the frenetic contemporary life.
