South current issue: The Abuse of Life Matrix of the Colonial-Capitalistic Unconscious

“It is always a question of freeing life wherever it is imprisoned, or of tempting it into an uncertain combat.”
—Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, 1991

“The exhaustion of natural resources is probably much less advanced than the exhaustion of subjective resources, of vital resources, that is afflicting our contemporaries. If so much satisfaction is derived from surveying the devastation of the environment it’s largely because this veils the frightening ruin of subjectivities. Every oil spill, every sterile plain,
every species extinction is an image of our souls in rags, a reflection of our lack of world, of our intimate impotence to inhabit it.”
—The Invisible Committee, 2014

South remembers: Music to Save Europe

There is nothing like an absolute present. No more than an absolute orange or absolute love. But we European geniuses can be rewarded for having edified what resembles the cult of the metronome.
