Hito Steyerl: A Thing Like You and Me

Whatever happened to Leon Trotsky? He got an ice pick, that made his ears burn. Whatever happened to dear old Lenny? The great Elmyra, and Sancho Panza? Whatever happened to the heroes? Whatever happened to all the heroes? All the Shakespearoes? They watched their Rome burn. Whatever happened to the heroes? No more heroes any […]

FORENSIC AESTHETICS

MA Brief – 2010/2011 Objects are hieroglyphs in whose dark prism social relations lay congealed and in fragments. They are understood as nodes, in which the tensions of a historical moment materialize in a flash of awareness or twist grotesquely into the commodity fetish. In this perspective, a thing is never just an object, but […]

Peter Hallward: Option Zero in Haiti

As his advisors ponder the ever more troubling consequences of regime change in Iraq, Bush is entitled to take some comfort from the far more successful operation just completed in Haiti.

Mike Davis: Who will build the Ark?

What follows is rather like the famous courtroom scene in Orson Welles’s The Lady from Shanghai (1947).

Mao Zedong: On the Relation Between Knowledge and Practice, Between Knowing and Doing

[There used to be a number of comrades in our Party who were dogmatists and who for a long period rejected the experience of the Chinese revolution, denying the truth that “Marxism is not a dogma but a guide to action” and overawing people with words and phrases from Marxist works, torn out of context.

Bruno Latour: Scientific Objects and Legal Objectivity

It might be said that this simply revives the old distinction between judgements of fact and judgements of value. For my part, I would be more inclined to see this distinction itself as the echo of something invented by the great seventeenth century philosophers, who, for reasons which were largely political, inappropriately crossed law with […]
