About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 136 pages. Dimensions: 6.8in. x 4.5in. x 0.5in.The 2010 English-language edition of Christian Marazzis The Violence of Financial Capitalism made a groundbreaking work on the global financial crisis available to an expanded readership. This new edition has been updated to reflect recent events, up to and including the G20 summit in July 2010 and the broad consensus to reduce government spending that emerged from it. Marazzi, a leading figure in the European postfordist movement, argues that the processes of financialization are not simply irregularities between the traditional categories of wages, rent, and profit, but rather a new type of accumulation adapted to the processes of social and cognitive production today. The financial crisis, he contends, is a fundamental component of contemporary accumulation and not a classic lack of economic growth. Marazzi shows that individual debt and the management of financial markets are actually techniques for governing the transformations of immaterial labor, general intellect, and social cooperation. The financial crisis has radically undermined the very concept of unilateral and multilateral economico-political hegemony, and Marazzi discusses efforts toward a new geomonetary order that have emerged around the globe in response. Offering a radically new understanding of the current stage of international economics as well as crucial post-Marxist guidance for confronting capitalism in its newest form, The Violence of Financial Capitalism is a valuable addition to the contemporary arsenal of postfordist thought. This edition includes the glossary of the esoteric neolanguage of financial capitalismWords in Crisis, from AAA to toxic assetwritten for the first English-language edition, and offers a new afterword by Marazzi.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 120 pages. Dimensions: 6.9in. x 4.4in. x 0.5in.In this concise philosophy of the machine, Gerald Raunig provides a historical and critical backdrop to a concept proposed forty years ago by the French philosophers Flix Guattari and Gilles Deleuze: the machine, not as a technical device and apparatus, but as a social composition and concatenation. This conception of the machine as an arrangement of technical, bodily, intellectual, and social components subverts the opposition between man and machine, organism and mechanism, individual and community. Drawing from an unusual range of films, literature, and performance--from the role of bicycles in Flann OBriens fiction to Vittorio de Sicas Neorealist film The Bicycle Thieves, and from Karl Marxs Fragment on Machines to the deus ex machina of Greek drama--Raunig arrives at an enhanced conception of the machine as a social movement, finding its most apt and concrete manifestation in the Euromayday movement, which since 2001 has become a transnational activist and discursive practice focused upon the precarious nature of labor and lives.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 136 pages. Dimensions: 6.9in. x 4.5in. x 0.5in.In Ciudad Juarez, a territorial power normalized barbarism. This anomalous ecology mutated into a femicide machine: an apparatus that didnt just create the conditions for the murders of dozens of women and little girls, but developed the institutions that guarantee impunity for those crimes and even legalize them. A lawless city sponsored by a State in crisis. The facts speak for themselves. -- from The Femicide MachineBest known to American readers for his cameo appearances as The Journalist in Roberto Bolanos 2666 and as a literary detective in Javier Marass nove l Dark Back of Time, Sergio Gonzlez Rodrguez is one of Mexicos most important contemporary writers. He is the author of Bones in the Desert, the most definitive work on the murders of women and girls in Jurez, Mexico, as well as The Headless Man, a sharp meditation on the recurrent uses of symbolic violence; Infectious, a novel; and Original Evil, a long essay. The Femicide Machine is the first book by Gonzlez Rodrguez to appear in English translation. Written especially for Semiotext(e) Intervention series, The Femicide Machine synthesizes Gonzlez Rodrguezs documentation of the Jurez crimes, his analysis of the unique urban conditions in which they take place, and a discussion of the terror techniques of narco-warfare that have spread to both sides of the border. The result is a gripping polemic. The Femicide Machine probes the anarchic confluence of global capital with corrupt national politics and displaced, transient labor, and introduces the work of one of Mexicos most eminent writers to American readers.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 200 pages. Dimensions: 6.9in. x 4.5in. x 0.6in.Ours is a century of fear. Governments and mass media bombard us with words and images: desert radicals, rogue states, jihadists, WMDs, existential enemies of freedom. We labor beneath myths that neither address nor describe the present situation, monstrous deceptions produced by a sound bite society. There is no reckoning of actuality, no understanding of the individual lives that inaugurated this echo chamber. In the summer of 1999, Mohamed Atta defended a masters thesis that critiqued the introduction of Western-style skyscrapers in the Middle East and called for the return of the Islamic-Oriental city. Using this as a departure point, Jarett Kobeks novel ATTA offers a fictionalized psychedelic biography of Mohamed Atta that circles around a simple question: what if 911 was as much a matter of architectural criticism as religious terrorism Following the development of a socially awkward boy into one of historys great villains, Kobek demonstrates the need for a new understanding of global terrorism. Joined in this volume by a second work, The Whitman of Tikrit--a radical reimagining of Saddam Husseins last day before capture--ATTA is a brutal, relentless, and ultimately fearless corrective to ten years of propaganda and pandering.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 160 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.4in. x 0.6in.Why am I telling you all this Partly cause the whole queernessidentity thing for me stretches through everything, absolutely everything. Slipping between straightgay is childs play compared to slipping between writerteacherinfluence-peddler whatever. I forget who I am. You reminded me of who I prefer to be. M. W. Its two in the morning. . . I know what you mean about slipping roles: I love it, going high low, power helpless even captive, male female, all over the place, space totally together and brain-sharp, if it wasnt for play Id be bored stiff and I think boredom is the emotion I find most unbearable. . . KA -- from Im Very into YouAfter Kathy Acker met McKenzie Wark on a trip to Australia in 1995, they had a brief fling and immediately began a heated two-week email correspondence. Their emails shimmer with insight, gossip, sex, and cultural commentary. They write in a frenzy, several times a day; their emails cross somewhere over the International Date Line, and themselves become a site of analysis. What results is an index of how two brilliant and idiosyncratic writers might go about a courtship across 7, 500 miles of airspace -- by pulling in Alfred Hitchcock, stuffed animals, Georges Bataille, Elvis Presley, phenomenology, Marxism, The X-files, psychoanalysis, and the I Ching. Their corresepondence is a Platos Symposium for the twenty-first century, but written for queers, transsexuals, nerds, and book geeks. Im Very Into You is a text of incipience, a text of beginnings, and a set of notes on the short, shared passage of two iconic individuals of our time. This item ships from multiple locations.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 208 pages. The Invisible Committees The Coming Insurrection was a phenomenon, celebrated in some quarters and inveighed against in others, publicized in media that ranged from campus bulletin boards to Fox News. Seven years later, The Invisible Committee follows up their premonitory manifesto with a new book, To Our Friends. From The Invisible Committee: In 2007 we published The Coming Insurrection in France. It must be acknowledged that a number of assertions by the Invisible Committee have since been confirmed, starting with the first and most essential: the sensational return of the insurrectionary phenomenon. Who would have bet a kopeck, seven years ago, on the overthrow of Ben Ali or Mubarak through street action, on the revolt of young people in Quebec, on the political awakening of Brazil, on the fires set French-style in the English or Swedish banlieues , on the creation of an insurrectionary commune in the very heart of Istanbul, on a movement of plaza occupations in the United States, or on the rebellion that spread throughout Greece in December of 2008During the seven years that separate The Coming Insurrection from To Our Friends , the agents of the Invisible Committee have continued to fight, to organize, to transport themselves to the four corners of the world, to wherever the fires were lit, and to debate with comrades of every tendency and every country. Thus To Our Friends is written at the experiential level, in connection with that general movement. Its words issue from the turmoil and are addressed to those who still believe sufficiently in life to fight as a consequence. To Our Friends is a report on the state of the world and of the movement, a piece of writing thats essentially strategic and openly partisan. Its political ambition is immodest: to produce a shared understanding of the epoch, in spite of the extreme confusion of the present. This item ships from multiple locations.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 88 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.4in. x 0.2in.A moment later, Lacan is chattering with me, and giving me some crayons to draw with. -- from I, Little AsylumFounded in 1951 and renowned in the world of psychiatry, the experimental psychiatric clinic of La Borde sought to break with the traditional internment of the mentally ill and to have them participate in the material organization of collective life. The clinic owed much of its approach to psychoanalyst and philosopher Flix Guattari, who was its codirector with Jean Oury until 1992. In this lyrical chronicle of a childhood at La Borde, Flix Guattaris daughter Emanuelle Guattari offers a series of impressionistic vignettes drawn from her own experiences. As a child whose parents worked in the clinic, Emanuelle Guattari (Manou) experienced La Borde--which is housed in a castle in the middle of a spacious park--as a place not of confinement but of imagination and play. She evokes a landscape that is surreal but also mundane, describing the fat monkey named Boubou her father kept at the clinic, interactions between the La Borde kids and the Residents (aka, the Insane, feared by the locals), the ever fascinating rainbow-hued shit pit on the grounds, and prank-calls to the clinic switchboard. And, of course, there is Flix Guattari himself, at the dinner table, battling a rat, and in his daughters dreams. Emmanuelle Guattaris tale of childlike wonder offers a poetic counterpoint to the writings of her father and his intellectual circle. This item ships from multiple locations.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 200 pages. Dimensions: 7.0in. x 4.5in. x 0.6in.Experts, pundits, and politicians agree: public debt is hindering growth and increasing unemployment. Governments must reduce debt at all cost if they want to restore confidence and get back on a path to prosperity. Maurizio Lazzaratos diagnosis, however, is completely different: under capitalism, debt is not primarily a question of budget and economic concerns but a political relation of subjection and enslavement. Debt has become infinite and unpayable. It disciplines populations, calls for structural reforms, justifies authoritarian crackdowns, and even legitimizes the suspension of democracy in favor of technocratic governments beholden to the interests of capital. The 2008 economic crisis only accelerated the establishment of a new State capitalism, which has carried out a massive confiscation of societies wealth through taxes. And who benefits Finance capital. In a calamitous return to the situation before the two world wars, the entire process of accumulation is now governed by finance, which has absorbed sectors it once ignored, like higher education, and today is often identified with life itself. Faced with the current catastrophe and the disaster to come, Lazzarato contends, we must overcome capitalist valorization and reappropriate our existence, knowledge, and technology. In Governing by Debt, Lazzarato confronts a wide range of thinkers -- from Flix Guattari and Michel Foucault to David Graeber and Carl Schmitt -- and draws on examples from the United States and Europe to argue that it is time that we unite in a collective refusal of this most dire status quo.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 200 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 6.0in. x 0.7in.In 1784, the German newspaper Berlinische Monatsschrift asked its audience to reply to the question What is Enlightenment Immanuel Kant took the opportunity to investigate the purported truths and assumptions of his age. Two hundred years later, Michel Foucault wrote a response to Kants initial essay, positioning Kant as the initiator of the discourse and critique of modernity. The Politics of Truth takes this initial encounter between Foucault and Kant, as a framework for its selection of unpublished essays and transcripts of lectures Foucault gave in America and France between 1978 and 1984, the year of his death. Ranging from reflections on the Enlightenment and revolution to a consideration of the Frankfurt School, this collection offers insight into the topics preoccupying Foucault as he worked on what would be his last body of published work, the three-volume History of Sexuality. It also offers what is in a sense the most American moment of Foucaults thinking, for it was in America that he realized the necessity of tying his own thought to that of the Frankfurt School.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 88 pages. Dimensions: 7.7in. x 0.6in. x 0.2in.Octavio Paz: If you love art, do something, Fantomas!Fantomas: I will, you can depend on it. First published in Spanish in 1975 and previously untranslated, Fantomas versus the Multinational Vampires is Julio Cortzars genre-jumping mash-up of his participation in the Second Russell Tribunal on human rights abuses in Latin America and his cameo appearance in issue number 201 of the Mexican comic book series Fantomas: The Elegant Menace. With his characteristic narrative inventiveness, Cortzar offers a quixotic meta-comicnovella that challenges not only the form of the novel but its political weight in contemporary cultural life. Needing something to read on the train from Brussels (where he had attended the ineffectual tribunal meeting), our hero (Julio Cortzar) picks up the latest issue of the Fantomas comic. He grows increasingly absorbed by the comic books tale of bibliocide (a sinister bibliophobic plot to obliterate every book from the archives of humanity), especially when he sees the character Fantomas embark upon a series of telephone conversations with literary figures, starting with The Great Argentine Writer himself, Julio Cortzar (and also including Octavio Paz and a tough-talking Susan Sontag). Soon, Cortzar begins to erase the thin line between real-life atrocities and fictional mayhem in an attempt to bring attention to the human rights violations taking place with impunity in the country from which he was exiled.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 312 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.9in.Sylvie wanted to believe that misery could simply be replaced with happiness. Time was a straight line, stretching out before you. If you could create a golden kind of time and lay it right beside the other time, the time of horror, Bad History could just recede into the distance without ever having to be resolved. -- from TorporSet at the dawn of the New World Order, Chris Krauss third novel, Torpor loops back to the beginning of the decade that was the basis of I Love Dick, her pseudo-confessional cult-classic debut. Its summer, 1991, post-MTV, pre-AOL. Jerome Shafir and Sylvie Green, two former New Yorkers who can no longer afford an East Village apartment, set off on a journey across the entire former Soviet Bloc with the specious aim of adopting a Romanian orphan. Nirvanas on the radio everywhere, and wars are erupting across Yugoslavia. Unhappily married to Jerome, a 53-year-old Columbia University professor who loathes academe, Sylvie thinks only of happiness. There are only two things, Sylvie thinks, that will save them: a child of their own, and the success of The Anthropology of Unhappiness, her husbands long-postponed book on the Holocaust. But as they move forward toward impoverished Romania, Jeromes memories of his fathers extermination at Auschwitz and his own childhood survival impede them. Savagely ironic and deeply lyrical, Torpor is Krauss most personal novel to date. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 88 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.4in. x 0.2in. A boarder for two years following a national funeral, Mirabeau is removed from the Pantheon and transferred to the cemetery of Clamart when his pornographic novels are discovered A photograph taken by Hessling on Christmas night, 1943, of a young woman nailed alive to the village gate of Novimgorod; Hessling asks his friend Wolfgang Borchert to develop the film, look at the photograph, and destroy it The Beautiful Gardener, a picture by Max Ernst, burned by the Nazis -- from The Missing PiecesThe Missing Pieces is an incantatory text, a catalog of what has been lost over time and what in some cases never existed. Through a lengthy chain of brief, laconic citations, Henri Lefebvre evokes the history of what is no more and what never was: the artworks, films, screenplays, negatives, poems, symphonies, buildings, letters, concepts, and lives that cannot be seen, heard, read, inhabited, or known about. It is a literary vanitas of sorts, but one that confers an almost mythical quality on the enigmatic creations it recounts -- rather than reminding us of the death that inhabits everything humans create. Lefebvres list includes Marcel Duchamps (accdidentally destroyed) film of Man Ray shaving off the Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhovens pubic hair; the page written by Balzac on his deathbed (lost); Spinozas Treatise on the Rainbow (thrown into a fire); the final seven meters of Kerouacs original typescript for On the Road (eaten by a dog); the chalk drawings of Francis Picabia (erased before an audience); and the one moment in Andr Malrauxs life in which he exclaimed I believe, for a minute, I was thinking nothing. The Missing Pieces offers a treasure trove of cultural and artistic detail and will entertain even those readers not enamored of the void. This item ships from multiple locations.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 128 pages. Dimensions: 8.9in. x 5.9in. x 0.4in.There is a catastrophe within contemporary art. What I call the optically correct is at stake. The vision machine and the motor have triggered it, but the visual arts havent learned from it. Instead, theyve masked this failure with commercial success. This accident is provoking a reversal of values. In my view, this is positive: the accident reveals something important we would not otherwise know how to perceive. -- Paul Virilio, The Accident of ArtUrbanist and technological theorist Paul Virilio trained as a painter, studying under Henri Matisse, Georges Braque, Bazaine and de Stael. In The Accident of Art, his third extended conversation with Sylvre Lotringer, Virilio addresses the situation of art within technological society for the first time. This book completes a collaborative trilogy the two began in 1982 with Pure War and continued with Crepuscular Dawn, their 2002 work on architecture and biotechnology. In The Accident of Art, Virilio and Lotringer argue that a direct relation exists between war trauma and art. Why has art failed to reinvent itself in the face of technology, unlike performing art Why has art simply retreated into painting, or surrendered to digital technology Accidents, Virilio claims, can free us from speeds inertia. As technological catastrophes, accidents are inventions in their own right. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback.

It begins with the urge to flee and escape for a second from an oppressive technological environment, to regain ones senses and ones sense of self. --from Lost DimensionOriginally written in French in 1983, Lost Dimension remains a cornerstone book in the work of Paul Virilio: the one most closely tied to his background as an urban planner and architect, and the one that most clearly anticipates the technologically wired urban space we live in today: a city of permanent transit and internalized borders, where time has overtaken space, and where telecommunications has replaced both our living and our working environments. We are living in the realm of the lost dimension, where the three-dimensional public square of our urban past has collapsed into the two-dimensional interface of the various screens that function as gateways to home, office, and public spaces, be they the flat-screen televisions on our walls, the computer screens on our desktops, or the smartphones in our pockets. In this multidisciplinary tapestry of contemporary physics, architecture, aesthetic theory, and sociology, Virilio describes the effects of todays hyperreality on our understanding of space. Having long since passed the opposition of city and country, and city and suburb, the speed-ridden city and space of today are an opposition between the nomadic and the sedentary: a web of interactive, informational networks that turn our world into a prison-house of illusory transcendence.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 168 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 5.9in. x 0.7in.Alterity is in danger. It is a masterpiece in peril, an object lost or missing from our system, from the system of artificial intelligence and the system of communication in general. --from Radical AlterityWhere is the Other today Can Otherness challenge our arrogant, insular cultural narcissism From artificial intelligence to the streets of Venice, from early explorers to contemporary photographers, Jean Baudrillard and Marc Guillaume discuss the traces of radical alterity in our world. These provocative seminars, held in 1990 and 1991, follow the multiple, intertwined trajectories first projected in Baudrillards work and his reading of the radical exoticism posited by Victor Segalen--ideas Baudrillard extends into the realms of mass media, pseudonyms, technology, and that illusorily close yet radically foreign primitive society of the future, America. In a world where no corner is unexplored, the Other remains a challenge to thought, a crack in the shell of universal understanding, impossible to communicate but potentially the linchpin of communication itself. Together, Baudrillard and Guillaume explore the threatened and fatal figures of radical alterity. This collection is no longer available in French, and this English edition includes an additional essay by Baudrillard, Because Illusion and Reality Are Not Opposed. Jean Baudrillard (1929-2007) will be remembered as one of the most provocative and renowned social theorists of the twentieth century. Economist and professor at the Universit de Paris-Dauphine, Marc Guillaume has published several works in French rethinking contemporary socioeconomics and has collaborated with such thinkers as Jacques Derrida and Jacques Attali.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 264 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.6in.Originally published in Italian in 2002, When the Word Becomes Flesh provides a compelling contribution to the understanding of language and its relation to human nature and social relationships. Adopting Aristotles definition of the human being as a linguistic and political animal, Paolo Virno frames the act of speech as a foundational philosophical issue -- an act that in its purely performative essence ultimately determines our ability to pass from the state of possibility to one of actuality: that is, from the power to act to action itself. As the ultimate public act, speech reveals itself to be an intrinsically political practice mediating between biological invariants and changing historical determinations. In his most complete reflection on the topic to date, Virno shows how language directly expresses the conditions of possibility for our experience, from both a transcendental and a biological point of view. Drawing on the work of such twentieth-century giants as Ferdinand de Saussure, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Edmund Husserl, and Gottlob Frege, Virno constructs a powerful linguistic meditation on the political challenges faced by the human species in the twenty-first century. It is in language that human nature and our historical potentialities are fully revealed, and it is language that can guide us toward a more aware and purposeful realization of them.

The Doll called up the red-screen into his mindspace and traced the instantly visible tags: Mabs Buoy relay SFS Good Fortune, Wawagawanet 2145270401: 33 -- -- from SundogzBeginning with Venusia (2005) and continuing with Mercury Station (2009), Mark von Schlegells System Series has moved backward in time, investigating the contours of time, memory, perception, and control in the inter-planetary system that emerge off-world in the twenty-second and twenty-third centuries during Earths full collapse. In the latest installment, Sundogz, set among the water-rich moons of planet Uranus, extremist astro-marine spacers have constructed an aquatic world of extraordinary scope and ambition, entirely invisible to the System at large. The Good Fortune, a spaceship en route to Moon Miranda, the most beautiful and troublesome of Uranuss satellites, sends out a party to explore rumors of a secret fish farm in the ring. Now the Oan Bubble must attempt to survive its discovery. The characters in Sundogz traverse a cybernetic world containing traces of nineteenth-century realism, Shakespearean-style wit and violence, and classic fantasy, while exploring possible modes of the imaginations survival in centuries to come. As Jeff Vandermeer noted in Bookforum, von Schlegells work addresses the realities of a grim future with grace, humor and intellectual honesty -- his novels hark back to the heyday of such giants as J. G. Ballard, Ursula Le Guin, John Calvin Batchelor, and Philip K. Dick. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 336 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.6in.Originally published in French in 1972, Psychoanalysis and Transversality gathers all the articles that Flix Guattari wrote between 1955 and 1971. It provides a fascinating account of his intellectual and political itinerary before Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia (1972), the ground-breaking book he wrote with Gilles Deleuze, propelled him to the forefront of contemporary French philosophy. Guattaris background was unlike that of any of his peers. In 1953, with psychoanalyst Jean Oury, he founded the La Borde psychiatric clinic, which was based on the principle that one cannot treat psychotics without modifying the entire institutional context. For Guattari, the purpose of institutional psychotherapy was not just to cure psychotic patients, but also to learn with them a different relation to the world. A dissident in the French Communist Party and active in far-left politics (he participated in the May 1968 student rebellion), Guattari realized early on that it was possible to introduce analysis into political groups. Considered as open machines (subject-groups) rather than self-contained structures (subjugated groups), these subject-groups shunned hierarchy and vertical structures, developing transversally, rhizomatizing through other groups. Psychoanalysis and Transversality collects twenty-four essays by Guattari, including his foundational 1964 article on transversality, and a superb introduction by Gilles Deleuze, Three Group-Related Problems.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Paperback. Condition: New. 328 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 5.9in. x 0.7in.One day, perhaps, this century will be Deleuzian, Michel Foucault once wrote. This book anthologizes 40 texts and interviews written over 20 years by renowned French philosopher Gilles Deleuze, who died in 1995. The early texts, from 1953-1966 (on Rousseau, Kafka, Jarry, etc. ), belong to literary criticism and announce Deleuzes last book, Critique and Clinic (1993). But philosophy clearly predominates in the rest of the book, with sharp appraisals of the thinkers he always felt indebted to: Spinoza, Bergson. More surprising is his acknowledgement of Jean-Paul Sartre as his master. The new themes, a certain new style, a new aggressive and polemical way of raising questions, he wrote, come from Sartre. But the figure of Nietzsche remains by far the most seminal, and the presence throughout of his friends and close collaborators, Felix Guattari and Michel Foucault. The book stops shortly after the publication of Anti-Oedipus, and presents a kind of genealogy of Deleuzes thought as well as his attempt to leave philosophy and connect it to the outside -- but, he cautions, as a philosopher.

About this Item: Semiotext(e). Hardcover. Condition: New. 220 pages. Dimensions: 10.0in. x 7.2in. x 0.8in.In February 1991, the artist David Wojnarowicz (1954-1992) and the philosopher Sylvre Lotringer met in a borrowed East Village apartment to conduct a long-awaited dialogue on Wojnarowiczs work. Wojnarowicz was then at the peak of his notoriety as the fiercest antagonist of morals crusader Senator Jesse Helms--a notoriety that Wojnarowicz alternately embraced and rejected. Already suffering the last stages of AIDS, David saw his dialogue with Lotringer as a chance to set the record straight on his aspirations, his personal history, and his political views. The two arranged to have this three-hour dialogue video-recorded by a mutual friend, the artist Marion Scemama. Lotringer held on to the tape for a long time. After Wojnarowiczs death the following year, he found the transcript enormously moving, yet somehow incomplete. David was trying, often with heartbreaking eloquence, to define not just his career but its position in time. The subject was huge, and transcended the actual dialogue. Lotringer then spent the next several years gathering additional commentary on Wojnarowiczs life and work from those who knew him best--the friends with whom he collaborated. Lotringer solicited personal testimony from Wojnarowiczs friends and other artists, including Mike Bildo, Steve Brown, Julia Scher, Richard Kern, Carlo McCormick, Ben Neill, Kiki Smith, Nan Goldin, Marguerite van Cook, and others. What emerges from these masterfully-conducted interviews is a surprising insight into something art history knows, but systematically hides: the collaborative nature of the work of any great artist. All these respondents had, at one time, made performances, movies, sculptures, photographs, and other collaborative works with Wojnarowicz. In this sense, Wojnarowicz appears not only as a great originator, but as a great synthesizer. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover.
