The Art of the Exegesis

By Danny Butt

With art schools' integration into the university system, artists are required to present their work as written ‘exegesis’. Here, Danny Butt traces exegesis back to its origins as a form of knowledge production and considers its limiting effect on art’s own power of revelation.

Anomie/Bonhomie & Other Writings
By Howard Slater

In this collection of writings, Howard Slater improvises around what Walter Benjamin could have meant by the phrase 'affective classes'. This 'messianic shard' and its possible implications leads Slater to develop a therapeutic micro-politics by way of a mourning for the Workers' Movement and a grappling with the 'becomings of capital'.

The essay 'Anomie/Bonhomie' is the keystone of this book which also features tributary texts and poems drawn from the past ten years. These supplementary texts approach such themes as exodus, species-being, surrealist precedents, poetic language and the possibilities for collective 'affective' practices to combat capitalism's colonisation of the psyche.
