Short description: 

No Legacy || Literatura electrónica (NL||LE) presents a collection of works of electronic literature in Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan, and English together with print works of the 20th-century avant-garde and contemporary post-digital experimentalism.

No Legacy is a radical critique of the history of literature through a reflection on recursive temporalities. With no linear history, all literature is contemporary in No Legacy’s archaeology. No Legacy questions the languages of literature. Poetics bypass words. In No Legacy ideas take any form or are represented by just the one. In No Legacy, ideas are not means to explain the world around us. Rather, they are the objects that comprise the No Legacy world. In this ecosystem the literary is but an idea enacted across language, media, and time. No Legacy challenges your learned definitions. It proposes a universe of likely knowledge, rather than the absolute.
