On Non, Minimalism, and Music

Part I: Non-Music, (N)Ontology, and Distinguishing Bubbles. It is important to remember from the offset that ‘non’ is not identical to ‘anti’ or ‘counter’, for example, ‘non-philosophy’ is not an ‘anti-philosophy’ in the sense of Badiou, although his work on…

The Seduction of the Real

The Hedonistic Imperative: The Seduction of Hypercapitalism

Baudrillard: Nach der orgie
