Digital Seungmu-The Body without Organs

the organism


Dismantling the organism has never meant killing yourself, but rather opening the body to connections that presuppose an entire assemblage, circuits, conjunctions, levels and thresholds, passages and distributions of intensity, and territories and deterritorialization measured with the craft of a surveyor.



The Stripper brought ‘down’ by her eyes

The Stripper brought ‘down’ by her eyes?

in this friendly look the gaze of  the viewer is ‘sucked’ in by a question: what is the relation of substance and the difference  holding its own against generic definition, but delay and delayed gratifictation produces strains of resubjectification of personism and the deterritorialization of the ‘sujet’ leads to flatter lies about objectivity. ie, the surface of a photo: the pretenses of 19 c portraiture have collapsed as the living being ‘contained’ in the frame restructures its escape to lines of flight”

Amiri Baraka (1934-2014): Poet-Playwright-Activist Shaped Revolutionary Politics, Black Culture


NERMEEN SHAIKH: —how other leaders in the black community responded to him?

LARRY HAMM: Well, first of all, it’s important for people to understand that Baraka did not make this change suddenly. First and foremost, Baraka pointed young people like me to Africa and to African leaders, revolutionary leaders like Kwame Nkrumah, like Amílcar Cabral in Guinea-Bissau, like Samora Machel in Mozambique, like Mwalimu Julius Nyerere in Tanzania. You cannot read these people and not eventually move to the left, because many of them either call themselves socialists, Marxists or Marxist-Leninists. So, Baraka and the members of the Committee for a Unified Newark, members of the Congress of African People, were studying these people. So, for me, from an intellectual point of view, it’s almost inevitable that they would move in that direction. And early on, I can remember, you know, Baraka followed a brand of black nationalism called Kawaida. But I can remember when the poster came out that condensed Kawaida down to the three cutting edges: black nationalism, pan-Africanism and revolutionary socialism. And that was as early as 1972, I believe.

'Lotta poetica...


Could it be that poetry, as a prophetic forebear and pained translator of the ‘language of acts’, is, as a mode of singularisation, what enables me to embark on this mutual de-conditioning and to settle upon forms of affective transmission and distributed vulnerability that palpitates the senses to become, perversely, ‘organs of knowledge’?

Would I rather choose the ‘language of acts’, a language of unmediated suffering (phôné), a

scream of unblocking, that can claim no alphabet and that, as an affective transmission, seems

to summon the reticent and the unreachable across regions?

Aesthetic Education Expanded is a series of 12 articles commissioned by Mute and published in collaboration with Kuda.org, Kontrapunkt, Multimedia Institute, and Berliner Gazette. It is funded by the European Commission. A central site for all contributions to the project can be found here: http://www.aestheticeducation.net/. The series looks at the contemporary afterlife of the project of ‘aesthetic education’ initiated in the 19th century, from the violent imperatives of training and ‘lifelong learning’ imposed by capitalism in crisis to informal projects of resistance against neoliberal pedagogy and authoritarian repression.

Expanding the scope of the aesthetic in the tradition of Karl Marx to include everything from anti-austerity riots and poetry to alternative and self-instituted knowledge dissemination, the series encompasses artistic, theoretical and empirical analyses of the current state of mankind’s bad education and attempts to open up an understanding of what is being done against capital’s massive assault on thought and action whether in reading groups or on the streets of a world torn between self-cannibalisation and revolt.



'Revisiting 'Nights of Labour': Talk by Jacques Ranciere'

Video recording of a public talk at Sarai CSDS, by renowned philosopher Jacques Ranciere on the release of the Hindi translation of his book Nights of Labour: Workers' Dream in 19th Century France. (Sarvahara Raatein: Unneesaveen sadi ke Frans mein Mazdoor Swapna). The book has been translated from the English by Abhay Kumar Dube. This the first in a series of translations of outstanding texts to be published by Sarai-CSDS and Vani Prakashan.<

The talk on the 6th of February 2009 was followed by a workshop and roundtable with Jacques Ranciere, the next day.
   Revising Nights of Labour _______________Jacques Ranciere

Jacques Ranciere is a well known philosopher and writer. As a young student, Ranciere, co-authored Reading Capital (1968), with the Marxist philosopher Louis Althusser. Ranciere later broke with Althusser over the 1968 uprising in France. Since the 1970s Ranciere has produced a number of remarkable texts that range from working class history, philosophy, education, politics, and aesthetics. His books include The Ignorant Schoolmaster: Five Lessons in Intellectual Emancipation(1991), The Names of History: On the Poetics of Knowledge (1994), The Politics of Aesthetics: The Distribution of the Sensible Tr. Gabriel Rockhill (2004),The Future of the Image (2007).

Ranciere wrote The Nights of Labour after years of archival work. It traces the world of worker intellectuals in 19th century France, who, through their poems, music, letters, produced a world that did not celebrate work as in conventional socialist texts, but a life outside it. Radical in its style and argument, Nights of Labour, offers not just a revision of working class history, but the relation between politics, knowledge, aesthetics and equality, all of which have become topics of Ranciere's future books.

This event was made possible by the support of the French Embassy, Delhi.


'Expert: US ‘Benign Dictatorship’ Of The Net Is Over; Age Of Encryption Begins


“The internet has largely been run as the ‘United States Benign Dictatorship’ because everyone kind of believed the United States was acting in the world’s best interest,” Schneier said yesterday at the 88th meeting of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) in Vancouver, Canada. “That’s over.”
Schneier, a fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, said that more revelations about spy programmes are yet to come. (See Schneier’s blog here.)

'the canadian wireless rip off ..'


Ben Klass

Wireless service is so expensive in Canada because the cost of doing business isn’t cheap, or so the argument goes. “Canada’s vast and challenging geography” is the big communication companies’ go-to talking point for explaining why this is so. Proponents of this view point to figures like capital intensity to justify this claim, which shows that Canadian wireless companies’ capital-spending-to-revenue ratio is about on par with similar companies in other countries.
Okay, so Canada’s wireless providers are about as productive as the rest of the world, even if it is more expensive to put up a tower in 40 below. We’ve all got LTE in our ice fishing shacks and canoes, so what’s there to complain about? Well, as it turns out, lots.
Capital intensity doesn’t tell the whole story of why our prices are so high; as you might know, the path from revenue to prices is long and winding. So let’s look at another way of measuring how well a company’s doing. According to Jeffrey Church of the University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy, when assessing profits and market power we need to be mindful of one indicator in particular: a company’s internal rate of return.
