Example text

2 As with the previous chapter I make this argument against the backdrop of deconstruction (or ‘signifier enthusiasm’) and against what we might call the melancholy science of a more Adornian attitude towards art. The chapter then turns to Deleuze and Guattari’s own chapter on art in What is Philosophy? and looks at how a notion of affect (along with a notion of percept) might be deployed in thinking about the actual work of art, itself understood as a specific form of thought. In particular I am interested in how this ‘Deleuzian’ attitude differs from the more usual (in terms of art history) representational models or languages (and especially the ‘Social History of Art’).

1993, 36) Massumi gives us the example of the carpenter, and his or her skills, competences and tools, ‘meeting’ a piece of wood, itself already the contraction of a past and of future potentialities. We might think of the artist’s ‘meeting’ with his or her materials, a more complex encounter perhaps, but of the same fundamental nature. 30 We might also move away from Massumi a little and think about the ‘finished’ art work’s encounter with a beholder who again is the envelopment of a potential, a set of capacities to affect and be affected.

In fact ‘art’ might be the name for both of these encounters, a meeting, or collision, between two fields of force, transitory but ultimately transformative. Both of these encounters are precisely moments of production. The encounter, between participant and art work, is as productive, albeit in a different sense, as that between artist and material. ‘Meaning’ might then be thought as this productive ‘event’, this ‘moment’ of meeting, ungraspable in its moment of occurrence, but real in its effects.
