Art History after Deleuze and Guattari S jo erd van T ui nen, St eph en Z epke (ed s)

At the crossroads of philosophy, artistic practice, and art history Though Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari were not strictly art historians, they reinvigorated ontological and formal approaches to art, and simultaneously borrowed art historical concepts for their own philosophical work. They were dedicated modernists, inspired by the German school of expressionist art historians such as Riegl, Wölfflin, and Worringer and the great modernist art critics such as Rosenberg, Steinberg, Greenberg, and Fried. The work of Deleuze and Guattari on mannerism and Baroque art has led to new approaches to these artistic periods, and their radical transdisciplinarity has influenced contemporary art like no other philosophy before it. Their work therefore raises important methodological questions on the differences and relations among philosophy, artistic practice, and art history. In Art History after Deleuze and Guattari international scholars from all three fields explore what a ‘DeleuzoGuattarian art history’ could be today. € 59,50 / £53.00 ISBN 978 94 6270 115 1 November 2017 Paperback, 16 × 24 cm ca. 334 pp. 18 full color illustrations English eBook available

The Dark Precursor Deleuze and Artistic Research Paulo d e A ssi s, Pao lo Giud ici (ed s)

€ 69,00 / £62.00 (full set) ISBN 978 94 6270 118 2 November 2017 Paperback, 19 × 28,5 cm Volume 1: ca. 280 pp. Volume 2: ca. 290 pp. English Orpheus Institute Series eBook available

Gilles Deleuze’s intriguing concept of the dark precursor refers to intensive processes of energetic flows passing between fields of different potentials. Fleetingly used in Difference and Repetition, it remained underexplored in Deleuze’s subsequent work. In this collection of essays numerous contributors offer perspectives on Deleuze’s concept of the dark precursor as it affects artistic research, providing a wide-ranging panorama on the intersection between music, art, philosophy, and scholarship. The forty-eight chapters in this publication present a kaleidoscopic view of different fields of knowledge and artistic practices, exposing for the first time the diversity and richness of a world situated between artistic research and the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. Within different understandings of artistic research, the authors – composers, architects, performers, philosophers, sculptors, film-makers, painters, writers, and activists – map practices and invent concepts, contributing to a creative expansion of horizons, materials, and methodologies. For the extensive list of contributing authors please visit our website Paulo de Assis is an artist-researcher active as a pianist, musicologist, and composer with wider interests in philosophy and psychoanalysis. He is the principal investigator of the EU project Experimentation versus Interpretation: Exploring New Paths in Music Performance in the 21st Century, and a Research Fellow at the Orpheus Institute, Ghent. Paolo Giudici is an artist-researcher living and working in Padua and an Associate Researcher at the Orpheus Institute, Ghent.
