Belief in the world is what we most lack.

It was Gilles Deleuze who in various contexts underlined that what we most lacked was “belief in the world.” The odd remark appears, for example, in a conversation in 1990 with the Italian Marxist Antonio Negri about revolutionary emergence and the political force of minorities. In this dialogue Negri examines his interlocutor’s thought in the light of the “problem of the political,” which connects the various stages of the philosopher’s intellectual biography. Deleuze’s remark here is the reprise of a motif that would be familiar to readers of his second book on cinema, which appeared in 1985, in which Deleuze contends that the “power of modern cinema” is based on its ability to “give us back” our lost “belief in the world.”

At the end of the conversation Negri asks his dialogue partner about the possibility of present-day processes of subjectivization. After initially emphasizing the “rebellious spontaneity” of such processes, Deleuze...

Do you want to believe in language?

Asleep, Patrick sees what he doesn’t believe while he’s awake.

The index calculates everything. Announcements of awards, mostly false, light up then die. His dopamine balance feeds the list. Limbic structures support it. Brain means house, should have windows. But they’re slow shutter pictures of the past.

 

Five minutes past four, Patrick is woken up by a noise. He’s lying in the small room. Renate is sleeping in the big one.

“Maybe I’ll get an idea during the night,” he had justified his move to the couch, “Then I’ll have to send it to them. We’re sending the thing off tomorrow.” He was afraid of saying what he knew about Kerstin in his sleep, while lying next to Renate. In the darkness he feels the room buzzing at him. His brain answers the hum, singing sugar and protein, talking perineural network that controls the form and function of the synapses which guide all...

Die Liebe zur Malerei

»Malerei« und »Liebe« sind wie Schwestern: jeweils ganz unterschiedlich und doch auf vielfältige Weise aufeinander bezogen und eng miteinander verflochten. Seit der Antike ist die Vorstellung verbreitet, dass der – stets als männlich gedachte – Maler von Liebe angetrieben sei, wodurch sein Gegenstand, die Malerei, den Status einer (weiblichen) Geliebten erhält.1 Die Liebe wäre demnach nicht nur der Motor künstlerischen Schaffens, sondern würde sich auch unmittelbar auf dessen Ergebnis auswirken, das einer Liebesprojektion, einer Männerphantasie gleicht. Einmal abgesehen davon, dass dieses geschlechtsspezifische...

A War of Fragments: World Versus America

J.G. Ballard’s self-declared ‘Immodest Proposal’ for a global war-­alliance to exact the destruction of America demonstrates the provocatory zeal of his last fiction plans, as well as their enduring prescience. As Ballard emphasises several times in the World Versus America notebooks, he is utterly serious in his concerns and visions. Although the Ballard ­estate declined permission for any images of pages from the World Versus America archival notebooks to accompany this essay, any member of the general public interested to do...

How about some string?

I said “Would you like a rope? You know that haul you have is not secured properly.”
“No,” he said, “but I see you have string!”
“If this comes into motion—” I said, “you should use a rope.”
“Any poison ivy on that? ” he asked me, and I told him my rope had been in the barn peacefully for years.
He took a length of it to the bedside table. He had no concept for what wood could endure.
“Table must have broken when I lashed it onto the truck,” he said.
And, when he was moving the sewing machine, he let the cast iron wheels—bang, bang on the stair.
I had settled down to pack up the flamingo cookie jar, the cutlery, and the cookware, but stopped briefly, for how many times do you catch sudden sight of something heartfelt?
I saw our milk cows in their slow...

Digital Criticism

Theorien des Digitalen beziehen ihre Konjunktur aus einer zweideutigen Lage. Zum einen besitzen sie ihre Herkunft in den Visionen und Utopien der gegenkulturellen Aufklärung der 1970er Jahre, aus denen nicht nur der Personal-Computer, sondern auch die Medienwissenschaften und Medientheorien hervorgegangen sind, die den digital disrupture theoretisiert und unter Reflexion gestellt haben und nach deren Diagnose wir vor einer ebenso nachhaltigen Zäsur stehen wie die frühe Neuzeit mit der Erfindung des Buchdrucks. Alle Zeichen und Inhalte bisheriger Kulturen stehen damit auf...

Digital Criticism

We really need an analysis of algorithmic conditions and their paradoxes and ambiguities that gives them an adequate framework and horizon. But instead we currently seem to be finding an algorithmic solution of the algorithmic, much as digital solutions are being offered for the problems of the digital public sphere, in the way that IT corporations, for example, use exclusively mathematical procedures to evaluate and delete “fake news,” inappropriate portrayals, or the violation of personal rights. This tends to result...
