e-flux journal: What's Love (or Care, Intimacy, Warmth, Affection) Got to Do With It?
Julieta Aranda (ed.), Sternberg Press, 2017, Paperback, English, 360 pages
Including contributions from Paul Chan, Keti Chukhrov, Cluster, Antke Engel, Hu Fang, Brian Kuan Wood, Lee Mackinnon, Chus Martinez, Tavi Meraud, Fred Moten and Stefano Harney, Elisabeth A Povinelli and Kim Turcot, Paul B. Preciado, Martha Rosler, Virginia Solomon, Jalal Toufic, Jan Verwoert and Slavoj Žižek, this publication takes as its premise that we do have each other, even if it is said that we no longer have an addressee for our political demands. What we can no longer expect from the state, the party, the union boss, we ask from one another. And we provide. But love is more that a Youtube link or a URL. In our present times - post-human, post-reality, or maybe pre-internet, post-it, pre-collapse, pre-fabricated by algorithms - what does love have to do with it? This volume comprises a comprehensive collection of writings by e-flux journal authors cross-examining and making the subject of inquiry notions of need and care, desire and admiration.
