Sample text

It’s very difficult, as feelings are always very hard to explain. It is simply to be emotionally and sexually attracted to OBJECTS, things – not human beings or similar, but if you would have any chance to understand this, or get a true picture of it, I think it is very important to know the back-ground, and the ground ideas of persons who are objectum-sexual: We believe that all objects (things) are LIVING and having a SOUL, (Animism).

24 Perhaps here we have the beginnings of a post-humanist libidinal economy. 25 One wonders what Eklöf-Berliner-Mauer would make of such a statement (or indeed The Berlin Wall, if it were still with us). In Sartre’s “game of mirrors,” to recognize the subjectivity of the other is to realize the objectivity of the self for that very same subjectivity. 9% of the world’s human population, to experience oneself as an object is bound up with a profound sense of shame. Moreover, this ontological shame of (the) naked being (perhaps related to Agamben’s notion of “bare life”), is a symptom of our own anthropocentrism.

Production and appropriation have become confused to the point of fusion, as have design and art. There is no distinction between designer and artist outside the social context of production (which is relatively meaningless, if we look for immanent answers in the work of art itself).
