Art encounters Deleuze and Guattari : thought beyond representation by Simon O'Sullivan( Book )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a series of philosophical discussions and artistic case studies, this book attempts to map out an affirmative and specifically materialist attitude to modern and contemporary art. The volume begins with the mapping out of the philosophical terrain 'beyond representation', and beyond the so-called crisis of representation (deconstruction). The argument is made for a return to aesthetics - an aesthetics of affect - and for the theorisation of art as an expanded and complex practice. The second part of the volume stages a series of encounters between specific Deleuzian concepts and the work of artists that position their practice outside of the gallery, or 'outside' representation as typically understood."--Jacket

Minor photography : connecting Deleuze and Guattari to photography theory by Mieke Bleyen( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The notion of the minor, developed by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari in 'Kafka, towards a minor literature' (1975), is introduced and connected applied here for the very first time to the field of photography theory. Deleuze and Guattari defined minor literature in terms of "deterritorialization", "politicization" and "collectivization". By transferring 'the minor' to the medium of photography, this book enlarges the idea of 'the minor' and opens it up to all kinds of mutations in the process. The essays gathered in this book discuss the ways in which photography can make the dominant codes of representation stammer and how it can produce new effects and address people yet to come. The authors consider 'the minor' as a valuable tool to help photography research move beyond, or in between, binary and hierarchized ways of thinking (of high and low art, for example, or centre and periphery). As such, it aims to contribute to a rethinking of photography as multiplicity and variation
Fictioning : the myth-functions of contemporary art and philosophy by David Burrows( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fictioning in art is an open-ended, experimental practice that involves performing, diagramming or assembling to create or anticipate new modes of existence. In this extensively illustrated book containing over 80 diagrams and images of artworks, David Burrows and Simon O'Sullivan explore the technics of fictioning through three focal points: mythopoesis, myth-science and mythotechnesis. These relate to three specific modes of fictioning: performance fictioning, science fictioning and machine fictioning. In this way, Burrows and O'Sullivan explore how fictioning can offer us alternatives to the dominant fictions that construct our reality in an age of 'post-truth' and 'perception management'. Through fictioning, they look forward to the new kinds of human, part-human and non-human bodies and societies to come. - from book jacket
Visual cultures as objects and affects by Jorella Andrews( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within this quest to consider art differently, Jorella Andrews and Simon O'Sullivan pay attention to the asignifying character of art, or simply its affective qualities. Drawing on the work of key thinkers and turning to paradigmatic works of art they contextualize these art-related matters in relation to a significant recent rise in new thinking about objects, objectness, and objectivity within philosophy, crital theory, and ethics
Futures and fictions by Simon O'Sullivan( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In what ways could we imagine a world different from the one in which we currently live? This is the question addressed by the essays and conversations in Futures and Fictions, which explore possibilities for a different "political imaginary". With discussions around decolonization, new Afro- and other futurisms, post-capitalism, science fiction, and new kinds of social movements - and the intersections of these with contemporary art practice and visual culture - Futures and Fictions creates a space for alternate narratives and image-worlds that might be pitched against our neoliberal present. With contributions from Mark Fisher, Ursula Le Guin, Kodwo Eshun and Oreet Ashery."--Back cover
Five Heads (Tavan Tolgoi) : art, anthropology and Mongol futurism( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five Heads (Tavan Tolgoi): Art, Anthropology and Mongol Futurism' brings together the work of five anthropologists and five artists/collectives researching and responding to the dramatic rise and fall of Mongolia?s mineral economy. Launched in tandem with the eponymous exhibition at greengrassi and Corvi-Mora in London, the publication features visual documentation of multiple art-anthropology exchange processes, ethnographic texts, and further written contributions that introduce contemporary Mongolia as a dynamic site for conceptual and creative experimentation.0In the essay section of this book, the Green Horse Society tells a history of art and culture newly untethered in post-Soviet Mongolia; an early style of ethnographic art known as?One Day in Mongolia? painting provides a canvas for urgent environmental protest; Mongolian hip-hop and nationalist poetry become ciphers for thinking through deep time; and space is opened up for what Simon O?Sullivan terms the art-anthropology probe head to do its important work.0Faced with questions that transcend geographies and act across various scales, Five Heads mounts an experiment in separation (research detached from author, material detached from method) and growth (through the contact space between disciplines) in order to call into being new subjectivities and imagine possible futures.00Exhibition: greengrassi / Corvi-Mora, London, UK (01.-15.09.2018)

A Life between the Finite and Infinite: Remarks on Deleuze, Badiou and Western Buddhism( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract This article explores the resonances between certain concepts of Deleuze and Badiou and a Western Buddhism that is figured, in Foucault's terminology, as a particular 'technology of the self'. In particular Deleuze's readings of Bergson and Spinoza are brought into encounter with Buddhist doctrine and practice alongside a consideration of the figure of the bodhisattva who is further compared to Badiou's account of the subject. At stake in these enquiries and experimental conjunctions is the laying out of a particular - and liveable - diagram of the finite-infinite relation, or, we might say, a specifically Western dharma for a contemporary production of subjectivity
