Artmachines presents, constructs, and transforms the thought of Deleuze and Guattari, excavating from their work a new philosophy of individuation and creative production.
Western thought remains burdened by a worn-out image predicated upon binary oppositions, sterile notions of art as representation, and an untenable model of the subject as a sovereign individual. Deleuze and Guattari aim, above all, to create a new image of thought that dismantles these worn-out concepts and that fosters creativity, life, and becoming.
These 13 essays by Deleuze specialist Anne Sauvagnargues, 12 of which are being published in English for the first time, will help to make Deleuze and Guattari's work useful to scholars and artists in a range of disciplines. Ranging over literature, art, cinema, philosophy, psychoanalysis, and politics, they converge around the concepts of individuation, ecology, territory, the machine, transversality, and the refrain. The result is the sense of a new image predicated on individuation and the event.
