Think of the skin as interface between bodies, between real and material bodies. Bodies as surfaces but not without voice. What is the feeling of being a body? A body that processes, feels line and colour. Walking down a hot street, or looking at Matisse's odalisques with cold, dead stares. Consider flesh rendered in oil paint as the ultimate fetish. There are tropes and there is the real texture o...   [more]

"It’s possible for individual subjects (any one of us) to have fantasies of Living-Together. We set about elaborating a fantasmatic form of Living-Together, selecting our would-be companions from ournetwork of acquaintances. Now, what’s interesting about that fan-tasmatic elaboration is not who we choose, but who we exclude: the criteria for exclusion don’t necessarily overlap with the im...   [more]
