Black Bataille

by Aria Dean

“Blackness presents the possibility of a thoroughly anti-Idealist aesthetic and theory of objects.”


Catharsis in Ten Fragments

by Lauren O'Neill-Butler

"I've never understood catharsis."


Michael Taussig

in conversation with Nancy Goldring

“Sacrifice is a pointed instance of dépense, an exquisitely sacred combustion, and one that runs throughout Bataille’s economics.”


Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev

in conversation with Valerie Midlin

“L’informe comes out of WWII, the atomic bomb, and the Holocaust.”


Matthew Barney

in conversation with Aria Dean

"At the core, I think of my creative language as being rather formless."


Unfinished Work: A Roundtable on L’informe

with Aria Dean, Bruce Hainley, Ruba Katrib, Emmanuel Olunkwa, and Lauren O'Neill-Butler

“It’s easy to recognize specters of Bataille’s thought today, for better and for worse.”


Volume 1: On L'Informe

"Rethinking contemporary aspects of the informe—related to technology, gender, disease, and race—in a Bataillean key."


Andrea Long Chu

in conversation with Emmanuel Olunkwa

“I experienced my transness as a shape the Internet made when it looked at me.”
