Mona's bodee wid Out OrganSreadin'between lines

BwO


'For you can tie me up if you wish, but there is nothing more useless than an organ. When you will have made him a body without organs, then you will have delivered him from all his automatic reactions and restored him to his true freedom. They you will teach him again to dance wrong side out as in the frenzy of dance halls and this wrong side out will be his real place.'
Antonin Artaud, 'To Have Done with the Judgement of God' (1947)




'It operates everywhere, either permanently or discontinuously. It breathes, it warms up, it eats. It shits, it kisses. What a mistake to have said it. Everywhere machines, and not just metaphorically: machinic machines, with their couplings and connections. An organ-machine is coupled with a fountain-machine: one of them emits a flow which the other cuts.'
Deleuze & Guattari, 'The Anti-Oedipus. Capitalism and Schizophrenia' (1972)


"Artaud's only misjudgment was his belief that the body without organs had yet to be created. The electronic body is the body without organs. ( So say the writers of Critical Ensemble in a rather dogmantizing tone... ) It already "dominates" performance (whose performance, which ones?), and has recentered the theater around empty identity and empty desire ( I ask: Which theatre?a theatre without organs, the theatre of Cruelty?) (maybe they are speaking about Tv that most cruel of organ sans body & Not body without organs) is the perfect body- forever reproducible ( Interesting claims:these statemtents need to context themselves..are they speaking of a concept of electronic resurrection??)..). No reduction to biology(BioLogy is Not Reductive) now. Two hundred Elvis (Please, not that fat friggin dUde again cand clones aint B.W.O's) clones appear on the screen. Separate them: Turn the channel; play the tape. Each performance is on an eternal loop. These clones were not made in a test tube; they reproduce of their own accord, each as precise and as perfect as the last. No fluids, no plagues, no interruptions. Again critical's reading of A/O and BWO is of one type of BWO not the multitide of them....

'The orifices of the body without organs are sewn tightly shut. 'No consumption, no excretion, no interruptions. Such free-dom: Safely screened off from the virtual catastrophes of war, capital, gender, or any other manifestation teetering at the brink of a crash, the body without organs is free to drift in the electronic rhizome.Again too easy the body is attended by the BWO but requires a Body_ this territory reterritory deterritory : Artaud is horrified at the idea of the loss of an actual body

The theater of the street and its associated cultural debris collapses. Civilization has been washed clean-progress is complete-dirt, trash, rot, and rubble have been screened off and erased from the perfect world of the electronic body. The electronic body, free of the flesh, free of the economy of desire, has escaped the pain of becoming." Precisely & thus this is not the Body-without-organs but more like Zizek's Organs without Bodies....
Critical Art Ensemble, "The Electronic Disturbance" (1994)


"Luther Blissett has no openings."
Luther Blissett, "The Low on Luther Blissett", (1995) this to be followed up

"This new social relationship between the electronic body (the body without organs) and the organic body is one of the best resources for performance material. Performance resources must go beyond the organic body, which at present acts as the master link in performative models of representation. In the age of electronic media, it is inappropriate to argue that performance exhausts itself under the sign of the organic. After all, the electronic body is always performing, even if in absentia on every stage.

There is every reason to desire the electronic body, and every reason to despise it. This pathological struggle occurs when one views the electronic body, and feelings of sympathy (Husserl) and envy (Benjamin) implode in a schizophrenic moment.
As Baudrillard states: "In spite of himself the schizophrenic is open to everything and lives in the most extreme confu- sion. The schizophrenic is not, as generally claimed, characterized by his loss of touch with reality, but by the absolute proximity to and total instantaneousness with things, this overexposure to the transparency of the world."

this condition Baudrillard describes has become a common condition for everyone excepting the rich the priveliged. and those few 'above' the common. the multitude.s .

of bodies without organs of everyday life. On the other hand, it is not a statement that bears generalizing as the schizo condition by defintion is one in flux and movement in, over and itself a creation of Intensity. and flow-coupage, and rearward fall back.


"In the debris (debris? more fancy theoretical terms) of intersubjectivity, the organic and the electronic face each other. The electronic body looks so real. It moves around, it gazes back, it communicates. Danger Danger Danger!


"Its appearance is our appearance (Which Our are you speaking of???). Identity manifests and is reinforced, as subjectivity is extracted/imposed by the elec- tronic other. How can such a perception not conjure a sympathetic response? Yet in that same instant of unity comes the burning feeling of separation born of envy. The identity of the electronic body is not our own."
Critical Art Ensemble, "The Electronic Disturbance" (1994)

    China: the grass, splinters

    "I believe that today more than ever a book should be sought after even if it has only one great page in it," wrote Henry Miller in Tropic of Cancer.

    "We must search for fragments, splinters, toenails, anything that has ore in it, anything that is capable of resuscitating the body and soul."



    In A/O and in other works D& G (DOG or GOD) quote Miller . ANd even when they dont quote him direct, there's a love of life and energy that is Millerian,
    alive, electric. Not a masturbation machine of the maniacs of money.

    'I am not appealing for any man's verdict, I am only imparting knowledge. I am only making a report. To you, honoured Members of the Academy, I have only made a report.' K 7

    Prof DaddioDeleuze& Analyst Guattari go on to say ' A writer isn't a writer-man; he is a machine-man, and an experimental man (who thereby ceases to be a man in order to become an apre or a beetle, or a dog, or mouse, a becoming-animal, a becoming-inhuman, since it is actually through voice and through sound and through a style that one becomes an animal, and certainly
    through
    the force of sobriety . '

    Schizo-politeness, a drunkeness caused by water. K 26

    'Art is a mirror, which goes 'fast,' like a watch - sometimes.' K 28. Think of Dali's Melting Watch .


    What are the components of this literary machine, of Kafka's writing, or expression, machine?
    One component is the letters. In what ways do they belong to the oeuvre? In fact, Kafka's work is not defined by a publishing intention. Kafka evidently did not thinki of publishing his letters; quite the contrary, he thought of destroying everything he wrote as thought it were all like letters.
    If the letters really are a part of the work, it is because they are an
    indispensable gear, a motor part for the literary machine as Kafka conceeives of it even if this machine is destined to disappear or explode to a degree comparable to the machine of the Penal Colony.

    Impossible to conveive of Kafka's machine without it involving
    an epistolary aspect.
    Perhaps it is as a function of the ltetters, of the demands, of their potentials and their insuffiencies,
    that the other other pieces will be assembled.

    The letters are a rhizome, a network, a spider's web. There is a vampirism in the letters, that is specifically epistolary. K 28-9

    Le quai de la théorie

    "La schizo-analyse deleuzienne cherche avant tout à ne pas se tromper sur le désir. Pour Deleuze et Guattari, le désir n’est pas une affaire privée mais un investissement collectif. On désire dans et par le collectif. « Tout délire est d’abord l’investissement d’un champ social, économique, politique, culturel, racial et raciste, pédagogique, religieux : le délirant applique à sa famille et à son fils un délire qui les déborde de toutes parts » (1). ...."

    'He gives us twelve or thirteen versions of the death of God, for good measure and to be done with it, so as to render the event comical. ANd he explains that strictly speaking this has no importance whatever, that it merely concerns the latest Pope; God dead or not dead, the father dead or not dead, it amounts to the same thing, since the psychic repression
    (refoulement) and the same social repression continue unabated, here in the name of God or a living father, there in the name of man or the dead father.

    Nietzsche says that what is important is not the news that God is dead, but the time this news takes to bear fruit.'
