Frédéric Neyrats Atopias

24 Jan , 2018  

Neyrat führt den Begriff der Koalition ein, der niemals auf identische Interessen oder Intentionen reduziert werden kann, vielmehr für ihn ein Ensemble von Seienden ist, ein Ensemble der Unsicherheit, das aber die Möglichkeit des Miteinander-Seins nicht ausschließt. Die Subjekte, die sich in Koalition befinden, nennt Neyrat „Trans-jekte“. Gerade als Agens ...

Synthetic Fabrication: The Myth of the Politics-to-Come (Part 0: Introduction)

13 Jan , 2018  

Missing

The Millennium is ten years out, but for Baudrillard it might as well have already happened. The eclipsing of the communists’ historical dream by globalized flows of floating capital and information ushered in a cold, glacial stasis: the enveloping of any sense of forward momentum by the simulation of ...

What Is the Analog?

6 Jan , 2018  

This is an excerpt from a forthcoming essay on “The Golden Age of Analog.”

28 Dez , 2017  

Accelerationism talk – Rotterdam – 19.4.15

I want to begin by admitting that I am not an Accelerationist. I usually work between the fields of philosophy, art and politics, and my main reference point is the work of Deleuze and Guattari. So while my account of Accelerationism is obviously effected

Schizo-revolutionary Art; Deleuze, Guattari and Communization

26 Dez , 2017  

‘Insurrection is an art.’ (Jacques Camatte, 2011 38)

‘It is as a rupture with the reproduction of what we are that will necessarily form the horizon of our struggles.’ (Endnotes, 2011 31)

What is the ‘art’ of insurrection? It encompasses – for Deleuze and Guattari at least – a homemade

Félix Guattari: Origins in Trotskyism and Psychoanalysis

25 Nov , 2017  

Félix Guattari is well-known for his philosophical works, co-authored with Gilles Deleuze. However, his early work has only become available in the Anglophone world recently. Guattari’s earlier inheritance from Trotskyism and from Lacanian psychoanalysis presents an important backdrop to his mature work. The intertwining of these two perspectives, along with ...

Obsolete Capitalism Sound System :: Chaos Sive Natura. Electric Tree and Electronic Rhizome

The present work does not have a starting point but many starting points, centres of strength and lines of movement that compose it. One of the dynamic points is shown by the title: Chaos Sive Natura. It is a Nietzschean paraphrase of an expression by Spinoza, Deus Sive Natura, God ...

DAS GROSSE ZERO (Économie libidinale, Paris 1974) Jean-Francois Lyotard: Libidinöse Ökonomie

17 Sep , 2017  

Walter Reese-Schäfer vermag in „Lyotard zur Einführung“ (bei JUNIUS) mit der LÖ offensichtlich nicht viel anzufangen. Dennoch wird deutlich, dass „die Krise der Auflösung“ einer sozialistischen Gruppe (19) sicherlich ein Anlass zur Niederschrift der LÖ war, es aber im Kern um etwas fundamental Existenzielles geht: um Verzweiflung (18 und 155) ...

Das Aufbrechen der Schliessung: «Links wird die Machtfrage wieder gestellt»

16 Sep , 2017  

… Natürlich gibt es da einen Bezug zu Guattari, zu Bataille, zu Heidegger und Nietzsche. Es geht um eine Ökologie, also um eine Lehre von der Welt als Umwelt, die sich der automatischen Reduktion des Ökologischen auf die Reproduktion seiner selbst entzieht und stattdessen fragt, ob das Ökologische nicht umgekehrt ...
