Underground Intensities: The Gothic Marxism of Deleuze and Guattari

22 Feb , 2020  

taken from The Wasted World

Within the pages of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari’s collaborative works recur images of the most unsettling kind. Writing of capital’s endless thirst for living labour, they remark that it “is no longer the cruelty of life, the terror of one life brought to bear ...

writing Capital, which leads ...

Brief Histories of Invisibility

18 Okt , 2018  

I would like to begin by contrasting Andrew’s project with the following passage from Jacques Rancière’s On the Shores of Politics as a way of grasping the discrepancy between the two aspects of socio-political power. Rancière writes,

“Police intervention in public space is less about interpellating demonstrators than it is ...

NO SELVES TO ABOLISH – AFROPESSIMISM, ANTI-POLITICS, & THE END OF THE WORLD

5 Jun , 2018

Theory Talk: Dark Deleuze

18 Mai , 2018  

…So, for me, I think secrecy is absolutely important. And yes, this goes against certain democracy theories and certain social-democratic approaches to Marx’s politics, but there have been a lot of communists who have operated in secrecy.

May ’68 Did Not Take Place

8 Mai , 2018  

In historical phenomena such as the revolution of 1789, the Commune, the revolution of 1917, there is always one part of the event that is irreducible to any social determinism, or to causal chains. Historians are not very fond of this point: they restore causality after the fact. Yet the ...

ON GIVING UP ON THIS WORLD

28 Feb , 2018  

Thomas Dekeyser: I read your book Dark Deleuze as a two-fold intervention: into Deleuzian scholarship and into radical political thought. I would like to first hone in on the former. You suggest the majority of Deleuzian scholarship has been overwhelmed by a ”canon of joy” that “celebrates Deleuze as ...
