Description - Gilles Deleuze and the Ruin of Representation by Dorothea Olkowski
This text presents an exploration of the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze. Dorothea Olkowski says Deleuze accomplished the "ruin of representation", the complete overthrow of hierarchic organic thought in philosophy, politics, aesthetics, and ethics, as well as society at large. In Deleuze's philosophy of difference, she discovers the source of a different ontology of change, which in turn opens up the creation of new modes of life and thought, not only in philosophy and feminism but wherever creation is at stake. The work of contemporary artist Mary Kelly has been central to Olkowski's thinking. In Kelly she finds an artist at work whose creative acts are in themselves the ruin of representation as a whole, and the text is illustrated with Kelly's art.
