Samenvatting

The Politics of Non-Flammability is a short narrated investigation spoken by a fire extinguisher questioning the condition of its own existence by looking at the political implications of its function.

In its search, a context is drawn between two pre-Socratic philosophers. One, Parmenides of Elea, centralised ‘being’ and ‘non-being’, and the other, Heraclitus of Ephesus, criticised that ‘ice-cold’ ontology by introducing fire: the element of change. The fire extinguisher, a pawn of the Parmenidean order, argues that the politics of non-flammability has been build upon the notion of ‘choking fire’ and thus change itself, to prevent its own omni-present destruction which the fire extinguisher explains through the example of burning flags.
