The following discussion with Félix Guattari took place in his apartment in Paris. With the help of a number of friends, I had prepared a set of questions, and had contacted him to see if he might be available to answer some of them.\1 He responded immediately, ...

Theory of the Border

31 Jan , 2019  

Border circuit: (1) Migrants cross the border. But the border is a junction, a vehicle of harnessed flows. The border acts as a sieve or filter since it allows capital and the global elite to move freely, but, like a yoke, catches the global poor. (2) A flow of migrants ...

So ist die Demokratie das Wesen aller Staatsverfassung (Karl Marx)

29 Jan , 2019  

Auch in dieser Frage machte Marx keinerlei Zugeständnisse. Und es waren Deleuze/Guattari, die aufgrund vielfältiger historischer Erfahrungen, von denen Marx nichts wissen konnte, ins gleiche Horn bliesen und dessen Ansatz noch verschärften. Deleuze und Guattari verhöhnen geradezu die Demokratie, die den Vertrag, den Konsens und die Kommunikation und damit ständig ...

The essay we (autonomies) share below is by the brazilian philosopher Peter Pál Pelbart. (In the absence of the original portuguese language version, our translation relies upon a spanish language translation published by lobo suelto!) The exercise undertaken is difficult (to conceptualise a community of the different) and it ...

“This world of wild production and explosive desire” – The Unconscious and the Future in Felix Guattari

21 Jan , 2019  

… In the context of science fiction studies Guattari’s interest in Cyberpunk
offers an alternative to Frederic Jameson’s dismissal of the genre as failing to offer anything more than an uncritical celebration of late-capitalism’s technological ubiquity. In fact Guattari offers hisown version of the theory of capitalist and cybernetic Accelerationism ...

Politicising Deleuzian Thought, or, Minority’s Position within Marxism

15 Jan , 2019  

The difference between the two points of view will thus be all the
more pronounced. The Marxist notion of the proletariat entails a
triple consideration: its position within the structure of production,
determined at minimum by its dispossession of the means of production
and its insertion into the process of ...

How Many Breakdowns For Every Breakthrough?

16 Dez , 2018  

Ultimately, one escapes from the structuralist impasse by recognizing that an effect of meaning only has repercussions at the level of the signified in so far as potentialities of subjective action are liberated, once there is a breach in the signifier…The machinic breakthrough, waiting, masked by the structure, is the ...

‘Desire Never Stops Investing History’

What is the relationship between machine and structure? What is it that differentiates a line of flight from becoming a pure line of death? Now, however unhelpful as it may seem, a perfectly adequate to answer to these questions would be the difference between the nature of the possible and ...

Deleuze/Guattari und der Schizo-Attraktor (Ultrablack of Music 1)

30 Nov , 2018  

Für Gilles Deleuze befindet sich die Kunst in einer ständigen Spannung, insofern sie zwischen den Polen Chaos und Ordnung oszilliert und ständig zu schizophrenen Aktualisierungen kommen muss, wenn sie aus der Triangulation ausbrechen will. Diese negentropische Metastabilität nimmt bei Deleuze die Form der inklusiven Disjunktion (weder … noch/ dieses oder ...

Deleuze/Guattari und die Quanten-Finance

26 Nov , 2018  

Deleuze/Guattari fordern uns dazu auf, mindestens drei Denk-Modelle auf die theoretische Analyse der Ökonomie anzuwenden, indem sie selbst das Bild der Strömung, das ihrerAnsicht zufolge jedes Modell artikuliert, nachzeichnen. Erst das dritte, das molekular-performative Modell setzt die Kraft-des-Denkens richtig in Szene. (Laruelle setzt den Begriff Kraft-des-Denkens in Kontrast zum Gedanken. ...

The Origins of Capitalism as a Social System

13 Sep , 2018  

Chapter 1 highlights the fundamental characteristics that, in their interconnectedness, distinguish capitalism from all other social systems: (i) wage labour, (ii) monetization of the whole economy (money-begetting money), (iii) concentration of the means of production and dissociation of the capitalist from the labour process as such, (iv) free competition and ...

From Zafer Aracagök’s upcoming book, Non-Conceptual Negativity: Damaged Reflections on Turkey, Punctum Books, Brooklyn, NY.

Although it sounds as if it is a simple echo of the original German fascism, Nano-fascism is a reappropriation of fascism by Turkish Republic which has given birth to an islamo-capitalist-despotic-machine as a result of ...

Control, Modulation and Algebra of Evil in Burroughs and Deleuze

1 Sep , 2018  

According to Deleuze’s Pourparler the concept of “Control” can be ascribed to William Burroughs. Since the seventies, it is possible to trace a deep intellectual and political convergence between Deleuze and Bur- roughs. This has happened across three levels of analysis: control society, revolutionary communities and ...

The Political Centrality of the Migrant

Political theory in the twenty-first century is at an interesting crossroads where migration has reached such a critical threshold that what seemed to be an exception has now become the rule. The question now is how to understand the rules of this game in a much more adequate way.
