21 Aug , 2017  

24/7 metric and algorithmic governance are important features characteristic of automated and financialised capital that Jonathan Cray and Berns/ Rouvrey understand also as a new kind of technological performativity. In his book “Social Media Abyss” Geert Lovink – founding director of the Institute of Network Cultures in Amsterdam – speaks ...

A Short Introduction to the Politics of Cruelty

23 Jul , 2017  

Hostis is a negation. It emerges devoid of ethics, lacking any sense of democracy, and without a care for pre-figuring anything. Fed up with the search for a social solution to the present crisis, it aspires to be attacked wildly and painted as utterly black without a single virtue. In

NONCONCEPTUAL NEGATIVITY: ADORNO+LIFE+DELEUZE

20 Jul , 2017  

NEGATION OF NEGATION vs AFFIRMATION

In Difference and Repetitioni, particularly in sections written on negativity, Deleuze, discussing the distinction between “being and non-being” and “being and non-being” rejects the consideration of the latter under the aegis of Hegelian dialectics. He is talking about Plato’s The Sophist and according ...

From a Philosophically Clean-Shaven Marx to a Philosophically Decolonized Deleuze

21 Jun , 2017  

[This is a really rough outline/introductory sketch for the third chapter of my dissertation, which takes up the relationship between the persisting residual eurocentrism in specific interpretations of D&G’s political project, and how D&G themselves constructed a framework by which to eradicate its lasting traces in both thinking and revolutionary ...

Dark Deleuze / Sound & Vortrag

26 Apr , 2017  

“Der Dunkle Deleuze hat einiges mit dem Schwarzen Laruelle gemein. Es geht darum aus der Perspektive des Schwarzen zu denken, das die Farbe in der letzten Instanz determiniert, jedoch nicht limitiert. Blackness befindet sich jenseits der Ontologie, sie ist keine Absenz des Weißen, keine Negation der Farbe oder einfach nur ...

I. Deleuze, Guattari, Accelerationism

There’s been a lot of talk about Deleuze and Guattari around both academic and activist scenes for quite some time. Sometimes they are objects of unfounded derision (decried as “holy fools” by traditionalist socialists like Richard Barbrook), and other times they are the beneficiaries of overtly ...

Dark Deleuze: Netzwerkpessimismus, radikale Ökonomiekritik und subtraktive Negativität

10 Mrz , 2017  

Beitrag gehalten am 27.3.2017 bei bbooks Berlin

Soweit es um die Deleuze-Forschung geht, ist Dark Deleuze wahrlich eine Studie der Häresie, insofern Andrew Culp Deleuze keineswegs wie so viele andere Kommentatoren, die dem kalten Rausch der Transformation des poststrukturalistischen Denkens in eine akademische Heimindustrie frönen, als einen toten Hund behandelt. ...

Alfie Bown: Your book is just 77 pages long but your project and its scope is huge. Your aim has been to recover Deleuze from those who saw him as the philosopher of “joyous affirmation” and who experienced his work (without perhaps always admitting it) as vitalist, life-affirming and even ...

“We do not lack communication,” Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari wrote in What Is Philosophy?, their final joint text. “On the contrary, we have too much of it. We lack creation. We lack resistance to the present.”[1] During the course of an interview with Antonio Negri, Deleuze raised a ...
