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.

Tense and Spaced Out

Blake Rayne

Blake Rayne’s paintings stem from the generative duplicity of words like Script, Folder, Application, Dissolve and Screen. These operative terms situate the work between forms of linguistic description and the history of reflexive material practices in art. This monograph covers the last ten years of the artist’s output.

  


Writings

Jean-Marie Straub & Danièle Huillet

Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet resolutely eschewed a Hollywood style of spectacle filmmaking to create some of the most raw and beautiful, as well as innovative and profoundly moving films of our times. Their writings open up a further understanding of their essential contributions, and their unique place in film history.
