Narrating the Catastrophe : An Artist's Dialogue with Deleuze and Ricoeur Hardback
by Jac Saorsa
An extraordinary collaboration between contemporary art and critical discourse, Narrating the Catastrophe guides readers through unfamiliar textual landscapes where "being" is defined as an act rather than a form.
Drawing on Paul Ricoeur's notion of intersubjective narrative identity as well as the catastrophe theory of Gilles Deleuze, Jac Saorsa establishes an alternative perspective from which to interpret and engage with the world around us.
A highly original--and visually appealing--take on a high-profile issue in contemporary critical debate, this book will appeal to all those interested in visual arts and philosophy.
