Mania, Fatality, and the Future-in-Delirium

Jason Bahbak Mohaghegh

What kind of circumstances provoke an obsessive focus on the most minute object or activity? And what causes such mania to blossom into the lethal conviction that everything must be annihilated? There is no turning away from the imperative to study this riddle in all its mystifying complexity and its disturbing contemporary relevance: to ask how a lone state of delirium forges a hidden route to world-erasure.

Matter and Form

Alain Badiou

Like the great philosophers, Jean-Luc Moulène creates something which, rising up against the fatal violence of the world as it is, indicates the human spirit’s capacity to propose to all what we might paradoxically call an idealist materiality. 

  


Model as Painting

Pieter Schoolwerth

One of the clear characteristics of our digital age is that in it all things are suspended from their more or less stable material substance. This monograph traces Pieter Schoolwerth's attempts to reverse this techno-cultural trend with his series of in the last instance paintings, and his practice focused on language, labor, and the body’s dispersal in today’s technological landscape.
