Samenvatting

Tragically, the moment art was born it was murdered. The historic avant-gardes performed their jobs professionally – as midwives for stillbirth. Yet, their sublation of art in life was also suicidal, since what they understood as ‘life’ in fact was the undead labour of vitalist capital. Hence, ever since art gives the formula first and foremost for one process: capital’s latest macrocosmic restructuring, which was its burial of the bourgeoisie.

“In this sense, the salons of the 19th century were the last bourgeois refuge of art before it was exposed to learn from Las Vegas. The new centre around which art circulates ever since is not a centre but a constant loss of centres, or circulation itself: capital.”
– from Capitalist Nihilism and the Murder of Art, Lukas Meisner

“The chronology of art is turned upside down, for now first an ear has to bloodily fly off before the artwork proper can exist, wonder only what one needs to cut off in order to build an oeuvre? Life itself, obviously, for only when it seizes something as an ‘oeuvre’ can come into existence; only when the body of the artist decomposes in the ground, the body of work of that body can finally be composed.”
– from Life as an Artist After the Murder of Art and Some Reviving Thoughts, Eef Veldkamp

Editie
Aporia Publishing House publishes books which engage with a knowledge that starts with the facts, yet extrapolates them into fiction, resulting in the philosophical concept of 'aporia'. Aporia means a state of puzzlement or perplexity when an investigation into certain questions does not result in explicit or satisfying answers. It is in this impasse of a process of truth where things get interesting; it is in the lack of clarity where the eye starts to look; and where the mind starts to think. Aporia Publishing House supports artistic productions that transfigure philosophical concepts, and vice versa, by engaging with the publishing process from the first words on paper all the way to hand printed limited imprint-editions, designed and published with the content of the text in mind. Earlier publications of Aporia are The Politics of Non-Flammability and Capitalist Nihilism and the Murder of Art.

Negatief, positief, neutraal: we zetten een review altijd online. We controleren wel eerst of ’ie voldoet aan onze reviewvoorwaarden en niet nep is. We controleren ook of ’ie is geschreven door iemand die het artikel heeft gekocht via bol.com en zetten dit er dan bij. De controles gebeuren automatisch, al kijken er soms mensen mee. Bol.com betaalt niet voor reviews. Als een reviewer door een andere partij is vergoed, staat dit in de review zelf.
