The demonstrations this week in Minneapolis mark a historic watershed in the COVID-19 era. As we argued in March, there are some things that are worth risking death for. Perpetuating capitalism is not one of ...

Sound of the Abyss

31 Jan , 2020  

And from here we move yet another step, to a third type of sound. As one of the NASA scientists notes, in order to have enough galaxies in the universe to produce this sound, ‘you’d have to pack them into the universe like sardines […] There wouldn’t be any space ...

Black

6 Jan , 2020  

Laruelle often talks about the black universe and that philosophy is not dark enough. But what is black? Is black a colour and if so, can we see it?

Reza Negarestani has provided a mix of theory and fiction in his book Cyclonopedia, where he portrays the earth as a ...

Mille Plateaux: The Ultrablackness of Clicks & Cuts

29 Nov , 2018  

Clicks & Cuts

With Deleuze or Boulez we can speak of rhythm in terms of non-periodic clicked music. There is a transversal disjunction, which is articulated in the track intern and in relation to other tracks, and this achievs the transition of „Clicks and Cuts“. Transversality is originally a topological ...

Laruelle – Against the Digital (pdf)

21 Nov , 2018  

Channel that great saint of radical blackness, Toussaint Louverture, and return to the Haitian Constitution of 1804, which stated that all citizens will be called black regardless of color. Such blanket totality of black, such cataclysm of human color, renders color invalid and denies the endless dynamics of black-as-white or ...

Ultrablack of Music

6 Okt , 2018  

Politische Musik ist eine Musik ohne Worte (im doppelten Sinn). Sie orientiert sich nicht an der Welt (sie hat kein Objekt in der Welt, das sie einfängt), noch ist sie eine Frage der Perzeption. Politische Musik indiziert eine Nicht-Welt der puren Auto-Impression. Sie ist radikal schwarz.

Was Laruelle als immanent ...

White Purity

26 Sep , 2018  

… Among other things, whiteness is a kind of solipsism. From right to left, whites consistently and successfully reroute every political discussion to their identity. The content of this identity, unsurprisingly, is left unexamined and undefined. It is the false foundation of the prototypically American model of pseudo-politics …

Figures of the migrant: Structure and resistance

14 Sep , 2018  

More specifically, however, the primary confusion here is that I included denationalized  refugees in the category of the proletariat when in fact many, but not all, of these refugees did not work. While many worked illegally, there were and are today many refugees who would like to work but cannot ...

FANON: ABSORPTION AND COLONIALITY

10 Jul , 2018  

Fanon’s significance to the present moment seems to me to hinge in large part on his identification of the lumpenproletariat as revolutionary subject, an identification that was anathema then (and largely remains so now) to traditional Marxism. Surely all remember Marx’s magnificent litany in the Eighteenth Brumaire of “vagabonds, discharged
