MATERIAL CATALOGUE

TOOLS & INSTRUMENTS
Not every advantage comes as an extension of the body. These tools and instruments allow the subject to perform specialized tasks and rituals, or simply to perform everyday tasks more efficiently. The sources of many of these products are unknown. Some are spawned from zonal anomalies, others the manifestation of longue durée. Others removed and recycled cybernetics. Each useful for the task that demanded its creation. Continue reading “MATERIAL CATALOGUE”

VIRAL TIME

1. EMERGENCY EXIT

From my window, I see a vast garden belonging to a monastery which was partially renovated into a hotel decades ago. Just a few monks are still living in the massive XVIII century building, and the hotel rooms remain empty since the travel ban was implemented. Monastic communities were supposed to be self-sufficient, so the garden used to be a fully-functioning urban farmland once, with cattle, sheep and swine, rows of fruit-trees, vegetables and cereal plants. Now it looks like a little golf course surrounded by a stone wall, crisscrossed by sand paths and decorated with a few peach and cherry trees blossoming under the dim light of the last winter days.

COVIDOLOGY

THE DAY AFTER THE ONE BEFORE

What, being simply a mirror held up to an enforced economic system, calls itself art? What hand holds the mirror? If it is clear that no aesthetic revolution is possible without an equivalent revolution in the idea of the world, nor is social revolution possible without a revolution in the very idea of representation. Continue reading “COVIDOLOGY”

ENTROPOLOGY

At the end of the second decade of the twentyfirst century, it has become de rigueur to speak not only of an Anthropocene but of a post-Anthropocene, whose template has been provided by that historical fissure in which the late industrial World Order was cracked open & prised apart by a rapid succession of wars, nuclear armament, the Marshall Plan, cyberneticisation & neoliberalism, exposing the vista of an ideal (because viewed from the perspective of monolithic power) tabula rasa – like a virgin resource just beyond the frontier, on the other side of History. It is possible that the discourse of the End of History & its reversal within that of a resurgent transcendentalism have become more pervasive, more insistent, more determined than at any previous time, even if, as is frequently said, “the ability to conceive of the history of hominids & the destiny of the Earth in the same temporal trajectory seems particularly deceptive today.”[1] Continue reading “ENTROPOLOGY”

“STUDY THE SITUATION”

In any social system, it is the asymptomatic who are the principal transmitters of the ideological virus. Whenever infection manifests itself around them they ask, What is to be done? Meaning: I am not to blame. Continue reading “THE PRICE OF A LUNGFULL OF AIR”

5 ANTI-MANIFESTS

1. The poem operates upon the secret logic of the world

Forced back to drawing boards, the impoverishment complex of Dadaist disgust. Alienism “works” on the premise that complexity is isomorphic to the void. Down a one-way street, accelerated in reverse. Larval pornographies on LSD. Necro-optimization. Crypto-singularity. The polysemy of circulation isn’t merely a concept: Even if sense is indifferent to it, the phantom collective subject shouts Sieg Heil! They built this city with instrumental nihilism. But that’s not why the lights rage in their eyes. Like the flames of Police-state crematoria. Like collapse vectors haloed by rancid ejecta. Even if this ignis fatuus calls itself History. No terror is unspeakable. Unseen doesn’t mean invisible. The witnesses all stood around with cameras raised in menace. Civilization was just their name for the self-destruct button. The children sing Eat the Police till they’re hoarse & its time to suck the Big Lozenge again. All have known the dead hand of cruel masturbations. Only the escaped slave knows how to assassinate the Master. Continue reading “5 ANTI-MANIFESTS”

TRANSFUTURISM

UTOPIAN PROSTHESES

In the first place, what is here signified by the trans- will have been that “accursed share” (Bataille) by which an economy of meaning or system of power redeems itself for itself by the appropriation of the very thing it prohibits or seeks to erase. As the sign of a redeemed “transcendence,” the trans- nevertheless retains a trace, the contradiction of a difference that infects & proliferates within the system that seeks to universalise itself by way of this prosthesis. Yet the future it programmes via such an evolutionary engineering is fantasmatic not only with respect to any naive conception of the self-supersessions of power (progressivism), but also of its subversion, & not merely because each retains the character of an indeterminacy. Both the universalising potential of the trans- & its abstract singularity as the prosthesis of a becoming-other, a becoming-the-future or a becoming-of/from-the-future, necessitate that its heterogeneous movement is not a matter of opposition (if not resistance) but of a radical ambivalence.
