==== The good people thinkers of multiplicities & other diVerSities at Manchester 're
cooking up an event which looks to be
interesting, thoughtful, gorgeous, sweet,
kind, generous, deterritorializing and
a smooth space of stratas tickled by their thumbs as the ghostlings of Professeur Challenger & others broadcast via
the persona of varied and sundry
If there was a Tube to Manchester
from Canada we'd be there.....
Deleuze Studies | The English Research Institute - Manchester Metropolitan University: "This page is dedicated to the upcoming Deleuzian Event at Manchester Metropolitan University. The conference takes place on September 8th and 9th 2007. Keynote speakers include Ian Buchanan, Claire Colebrook and John Mullarky. Also for the first time we will be conducting a live streamed broadcast of the keynote papers on this website. Viewers will then be invited to e-mail questions to the speakers, which will be posed during the questions and answer sessions. Further details on this will appear on the website closer to the event.

Earlier, we encountered two axes, signifiance and subjectification. We saw that they were two very different semiotic systems, or even two strata. Signifiance is never without a white wall upon which it inscribes its signs and redundancies. Subjectification is never without a black hole in which it lodges its consciousness, passion, and redundancies. Since all semiotics are mixed and strata come at least in twos, it should come as no surprise that a very special mechanism is situated at their intersection. Oddly enough, it is a face: the white wall/black hole system. A broad face with white cheeks, a chalk face with eyes cut in for a black hole. Clown head, white clown, moon-white mime, angel of death, Holy Shroud. The face is not an envelope exterior to the person who speaks, thinks, or feels. The form of the signifier in language, even its units, would remain indeterminate if the potential listener did not use the face of the speaker to guide his or her choices ("Hey, he seems angry..."; "He couldn't say it..."; "You see my face when I'm talking to you..."; "look at me carefully ..."). A child, woman, mother, man, father, boss, teacher, police officer, does not speak a general language but one whose signifying traits are indexed to specific faciality traits. Faces are not basically individual; they define zones of frequency or probability, delimit a field that neutralizes in advance any expressions or connections unamenable to the appropriate significations. Similarly, the form of subjectivity, whether consciousness or passion, would remain absolutely empty if faces did not form loci of resonance that select the sensed or mental reality and make it conform in advance to a dominant reality. The face itself is redundancy. It is itself in redundancy with the redundancies of signifiance or frequency, and those of resonance or subjectivity. The face constructs the wall that the signifier needs in order to bounce off of; it constitutes the wall of the signifier, the frame or screen. The face digs the hole that subjectification needs in order to break through; it constitutes the black hole of subjectivity as consciousness or passion, the camera, the third eye.

It would have been something to behold. In 2004 Swiss artist Thomas Hirschhorn was invited to create a piece for the Walker Art Center 'Walker Without Walls' series.
His idea: To build a 50 foot replica of the book A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia by the French philosophers Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari..."
Indeed!~ Indeed ~ ~.
[The] project will function not only as a mega-sculpture, but as an ambitious center for philosophy. Deleuze and Guattari's book is a landmark of continental thought, one that explodes philosophy by exploring it in terms of a host of other disciplines: from popular film and music to genetics and ecology. Hirschhorn will create his provocatively large book-structure in this spirit of bringing philosophy to life, compelling the community to question what role philosophy plays on the street. The artist will be on site every day of the project to animate a series of challenging lectures, produce and distribute a daily newspaper, and invite the participation of the community. As a giant bookkeeper, he will create a library and a "Galazy of Philosophy" exhibition in a room inside the book, as well as host a community run caf� right outside. "It's a project for the love of art in Minneapolis," Hirschhorn says, and The Road-Side Giant Book Project, while far too large to be flying off the shelves and far too heavy to be "unputdownable," promises to deliver a profound thud on the Lake Street doormat this summer."
Hirschhorn realized that by placing the work in such a neighborhood it would most likely be the subject of vandalism and graffitii � "all risks, he says, that are integral to a project he alternately called an experiment, an affirmation, and a confrontation."
So why wasn't such an intriguing project never completed?
"The project unfortunately outgrew its budget and was never realized" is how Paul Smeltzer frames it but I can see other factors coming into play for this is a very political piece."

'Lewis Caroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass are two of the most famous examples of what is often described (in somewhat confusing terms), as 'literary nonsense'. Hence the keen interest shown towards them by Gilles Deleuze in the opening chapters of The Logic of Sense, which play extensively with the sense/nonsense dyad. At the same time, Carroll's two most famous tales also interest him because they critique the notion of 'sense' itself, dislodging any pretension that it could somehow exist as a power-free knowledge of 'the depths', of 'nature', of 'the organic'. Indeed, as we quickly find out, Alice's primary discovery in the course of the adventure is, in essence, that she has no originary essence; she, who 'is Alice' also is 'not Alice' - identity is nothing more than inscription (or better yet, conscription). As Deleuze puts it, "it is not a question of the adventures of Alice, but of Alice's adventure: her climb to the surface, her disavowal of false depth and her discovery that everything happens at the border. This is why Carroll abandons the original title of the book: Alice's Adventures Underground". It is from this perspective that I would suggest Spike Lee's most outstanding film Bamboozled (2000) should be watched, especially since the 'alternatives' are either to read it as 1) positing an originary benign identity for African-Americans that could somehow exist prior to its inscription, or 2) to naturalize the predominant malignant inscription, as if it were the only possible one. That both Delacroix and his father overcome the limits of the subjectivity into which they have been delivered, as well as participate in the reproduction of some of its most damaging aspects (that is, as it has been formed under the order of whiteness), only make Alice's adventure that much more relevant in the face of a constantly changing order of racial formation; as Deleuze emphasizes, "the loss of Alice's proper identity and name is repeated through all her adventures".

The Paradox of Enemies. Hardt's book on Deleuze can be applauded for two reasons: its careful reading of Deleuze's texts and its attempt to situate them critically among continental philosophy. Hardt is a clear writer, and his insights are often quite powerful and suggestive. However, like most writer on Deleuze his 'deleuzian' reading seeks too much to reconfigure the texts (Bergson, Nietzsche,and Spinoza). Beyond Hardt's text stands the imposing shadow of Hegel -- perhaps my only hesitation with its analysis. There is a desire to find unity in difference however radical this difference might be. The key problem of scholarship on Deleuze seem to be precisely how to read him -- is the project Deleuze has laid out to reread his texts as he has reread others? How is one to be Deluezian? This said, Hardt's work is exceptional in most areas."
