Sample text

If the substance of that “object” is always already actative, which makes a work of art art’s work, the deconstruction of painting attempts to understand art as mattering. Hence, Benjamin looks at the way Derrida relates to the works of Artaud (“Forcener le subjectile”) and Atlan (“De la couleur à la lettre”) with a particular focus on how Derrida questions the distinction between the subjective and the actative. However, through Derrida’s engagement with these two artists, Benjamin investigates the emergence of the artwork as a particular in its very relationality or generality.

Because the mundane, the impure cannot be excluded from presence, “self-presence” to which phenomenology appeals can only be “a crystallization of the impossible” as Merleau-Ponty says. Aggleton puts Derrida’s reading of Merleau-Ponty in question by arguing that the belonging together of the self and world does not amount to the reduction of the other to the same and that Merleau-Ponty’s chiasm offers a model of complex intimacy in which alterity remains inappropriable. Edward Baring offers an analysis of Derrida’s discussion of writing in Of Grammatology with Althusser’s new theory of reading.

In “Art’s Work,” Andrew Benjamin considers the place, legacy, and limits of ekphrasis (the linguistic description of a visual artwork) for a deconstructive consideration of painting. Such a deconstruction might be a reconsideration that liberates the “object” from the hold of ekphrasis. If the substance of that “object” is always already actative, which makes a work of art art’s work, the deconstruction of painting attempts to understand art as mattering. Hence, Benjamin looks at the way Derrida relates to the works of Artaud (“Forcener le subjectile”) and Atlan (“De la couleur à la lettre”) with a particular focus on how Derrida questions the distinction between the subjective and the actative.
