Steven Shaviro is Deroy Professor of

English at Wayne State University,

Detroit. Among his books are The

Cinematic Body (1993), Doom Patrols - A

Theoretical Fiction About Postmodernism

(1996) and Connected, or, What It Means

to Live in The Network Society (2003).

His most recent book is Without Criteria

- Kant, Whitehead, Deleuze, and Aesthetics

(2009).

You are professor of English at Wayne

State University and you live in Detroit.

To us, and probably to most Europeans,

Detroit is about cars and music. With the

financial crisis and its impact on the motor

industry, what is Detroit like today?

Detroit is an interesting place to live,

but not a comfortable one. It's a city of

ruins and empty spaces (the population

is less than half of what it was fifty

years ago). The unemployment rate is

about the highest in America. Everything

is polarized along lines of both

race and class. You might say that all

the pathologies of America, which in

most places are hidden, are on open

display in Detroit.

The Detroit auto industry, as you

know, is in serious trouble. And there

really isn't any other basis for the local

economy. We are starting to see

things like urban farming and beekeeping,

in the empty spaces. And a turn to

green industries would be the best

way to make use of all the technical

know-how in the city that is currently

being severely underutilized. The extent

to which this will really take off in

the years to come is still unclear.

AN INTERVIEW WITH

STEVEN SHAVIRO

There's a lot of creativity, still, in Detroit,

even in such desperate circumstances.

Detroit is still a city of great

music, for instance: techno, hiphop,

dirty rock. But the musical scenes here

are very fragmented, often across the

same class and racial lines that divide

everything else. There's very much of

a do-it-yourself ethos here, with small

groups of people getting together and

making their own scenes. What doesn't

happen, unfortunately, is any larger

sort of connectivity, with these small,

self-contained scenes communicating

with one another.

Barack Obama has now been president for

six month. There was a great deal of optimism

and hope when he was inaugurated.

Now The Daily Show is running a segment

called "That's great. Now fix the economy".

How do you feel Obama is doing

today?

With Obama, there has always been a

split between symbol and substance --

I am not sure I am using the right

words here, because I think "symbol"

is important in its own right, even if it

is not "substance."

Symbolically, it is hard to overestimate

the importance of a black man

being elected President of the United

States. This was the result of an enormous

shift in the voting public, and it

goes along with changing attitudes

towards not only race, but other matters

as well. (No matter how compromised

Obama himself is, for instance,

when it comes to the matter of basic

rights for gays and lesbians, like samesex

marriage, an electorate that voted

for Obama is also one that is more

tolerant and humane, or closer (if I

can say so) to the kinds of attitudes

3

found in Europe, than was the case in

the past). Even aside from Obama's

race, the election of a Democrat was

heartening, considering the degree to

which the Republicans have associated

themselves with such conformist, repressive,

and religious fundamentalist

cultural values.

At the same time, on matters of substance,

Obama isn't really doing anything

different from what previous

Democratic Party administrations (like

that of Bill Clinton) have done. That is

to say, his policies are basically favorable

to finance capital above all else.

He is basically trying to rebuild the

neoliberal financial system of the last

thirty years, despite the fact that this

system is what crashed and drove us

into the current crisis. Even with all

the symbolic meaning that Obama has,

he basically was elected because the

economy crashed. And rebooting the

financial system, and injecting some

stimulus into the economy, was absolutely

necessary in some form in order

to prevent conditions from deteriorating

into a much worse depression than

what we already have. But one wishes,

for instance, that Obama would apply

the same rigor to the banks and investment

houses that he has been applying

to the auto industry. Or that he would

make bolder moves, on the model of

the New Deal, instead of the piecemeal

things that he has been doing.

On a more fundamental level (i.e.

from a marxist point of view), it is

obvious that Obama couldn't really

change the system in major ways even

if he wanted to -- and he clearly doesn't

want to. The crisis has not led to

any major questioning of the neoliberal

world order -- rather, this order

has been reconstituted to whatever

extent has been possible.

In the preface to your recent book Without

Criteria you write: "This book originated

out of a philosophical fantasy. I imagine a

world in which Whitehead takes the place

of Heidegger." Can you give a brief outline

of how the world would look, if Whitehead

took the place of Heidegger?

I do not believe that philosophy has

enough influence on the world as a

whole that the world would really

look substantially different if Whitehead

took the place of Heidegger. In

the book, I was trying to suggest that

the "world of philosophy" would look

different. This is partly a matter of

tone and temperament. Nothing could

be further from Whitehead than the

oracular, prophetic tone that Heidegger

favors. We would be looking less

at deep origins and more at prospects

for immediate constructions. We

would worry less about critiquing

metaphysics, and more about working

with and through bodies. We would

worry less about language and more

about the non-linguistic aspects of

experience. And we would be more

ready to step beyond what Quentin

Meillassoux calls "correlationism", or

what Graham Harman calls "human

access," toward a fuller view of the

interactions of entities in the world.

Also, in Without Criteria you argue for a

'critical aestheticism'. Along with Whitehead

- and Deleuze - you argue for the

relevance of the beautiful rather than the

sublime (and Kant's "Analytic of the Beautiful"

in the Third Critique). Can you say

a little about this 'critical aestheticism' and

perhaps your forthcoming The Age of

Aesthetics?

Most aesthetics of the past century has

been focused on the sublime, and has

disparaged the beautiful. This is because

the sublime involves a moment

of rupture or disproportion, whereas

the beautiful seems to involve accommodation,

comfort, and proportion.

Thus, for instance, Roland Barthes is

clearly on the side of jouissance (which

is sublime) as opposed to mere plaisir

(which corresponds to the beautiful).

I argue, however, that Kant's analytic

of the beautiful remains important,

because it is really a nascent version of

what Deleuze calls singularity. A judgment

of beauty is non-cognitive and

non-conceptual; beauty is that which

cannot be subject to rules, or derived

from rules. It is always a singularity or

an exception. It cannot be reduced to

norms. The problem of the beautiful is

how to universalize -- or even, how to

communicate -- something that stubbornly

refuses all categorization, all

universalization. The beautiful is

something that, on the one hand, I feel

impelled to affirm, and to communicate,

but that, on the other hand, resists

all the categories and norms that

are presupposed by the pragmatics of

communication and conceptualization.

4

I think of critical aestheticism, therefore,

as a practice of affirmation that

resists norms and categories. I think

that critical aestheticism can be contrasted

with, and perhaps even opposed

to, the "ethical turn" in recent

critical theory. "Postmodern" ethical

thought, from Levinas to Judith Butler,

produces a subjectivity that is infinitely

responsible, but that cannot

really do anything that would be commensurate

with the weight of this responsibility.

To think "ethically" in

this manner is to misrecognize, for

instance, the forces, processes, or

structures of Capital that create human

misery without this misery being anyone's

"responsibility" in particular.

Aesthetics does not lead to an alleviation

of this misery either; but I think

that an aesthetic appreciation of potentialities

and singularities is better than

an ethical recognition of infinite responsibility,

when it comes to responding

to the powerful and impersonal

forces that oppress us.

The best statement of these matters

seems to me to be Mallarmé's wonderful

maxim: "Tout se résume dans l'Esthétique

et l'Economie

politique" (Everything comes down to

Aesthetics and Political Economy). In

other words, I favor aesthetics as over

against ethics; and I favor political

economy (or what in Marxist circles is

often disparaged as "economism") as

over against the privileging of the political

(as against the economic) in such

recent thinkers as Badiou and Zizek.

My book in progress, The Age of Aesthetics,

reads science fiction in the light

of our recent history of commodification,

privatization, capital accumulation,

and financialization, in order to

think through the conjunction of aesthetics

and political economy. On the

one hand, 21st century marketing and

commodity production seem increasingly

to be concerned with questions

of "aesthetics." This is so, both in the

manner of Fredric Jameson's suggestion

that "everything in our social life -

- from economic value and state

power to practices and to the very

structure of the psyche itself -- can be

said to have become 'cultural' in some

original and yet untheorized sense",

and in the way that the aesthetic attributes

of our existence have themselves

become commodified and marketed,

so that today we are incited to

purchase, not just tangible commodity

objects, but also such things as events,

experiences, moods, memories,

5

hopes, and desires. However, at the

same time that the "aesthetic" is central

to commodification and marketing,

and thereby to the extraction of

surplus value and the accumulation of

capital, it also stands in some sense as

the limit of all these processes, to the

extent that the aesthetic, in its singularity,

resists subsumption into the

larger categories that are required for

commodification and monetary exchange.

Indeed, there is a formal parallelism

between Kant's account of the

beautiful, with its tension between

singularity and universal communicability,

and Marx's understanding of the

commodity, with its singular nature in

contradiction with its translation into

money as "universal equivalent."

ZONKEL’S CANON

ON THE PERFORMANCE-LECTURE THURSDAY EVENING

In the spring of 2001 I (Henrik Vestergaard

Friis) formed my own label Zarathustras

Onkel, which at the same

time is a group name and an alias. Until

2006 I did ‘art and reality research’

in Zarathustras Onkel name in twelve

very different pieces. In the fall of

2006 I started Zarathustras Onkel

examination of the Danish Culture

Canon for the Performing Arts.

The Danish cultural ministry has set

up a canon five years ago with the

most important cultural achievements

and artworks in Denmark’s existence.

These 96 pieces and works ranging

from architecture, design to stage art

shall show how great the Danish culture

is.

In Zarathustras Onkel name I have

now reconstructed eight of the works

of the Culture Canon and during the

next one and a half year I will reconstruct

the last four pieces. Zarathustras

Onkel isn‘t making reenactments.

Neither detail nor precision

is central to the work. The examination

attempts to pinpoint the core

of the work and reconstruct it with

suitable contemporary artistic strategies.

For each work Zarathustras Onkel

chooses the particular contemporary

strategy, which seems to express

the core of the work in question.

Originality is the aspect of created or

invented works by as being new or

6

novel, and thus can be distinguished

from reproductions, clones, forgeries,

or derivative works. An original work

is one not did not receive from others

nor one copied based on the work of

others. The term "originality" is often

applied as a compliment to the creativity

of artists, writers, and thinkers.

But how original and unique is Danish

culture really?

The performance-lecture takes place

Thursday evening around nine in

Embretsfoss. In the performancelecture

Henrik Vestergaard Friis talks

about the canon and shows video from

seven of Zarathustras Onkel reconstructions

of works from the Culture

Canon. Kjeld Abell (1901-1961)

drama Anna Sophie Hedwig from

1939 will be reconstructed live on

stage. Everything will be presented in

English.

For those not so familiar with the notion

of packed lunch here are a couple

of pointers :

• It usually consist of items like

sandwiches; fruit and/or vegetables;

occasional yoghurts and

other interestingly suitable

items

• It is a handy way to fulfil a part

of your daily energy intake

requirements

• It does not usually include

warm food

• It does not come in a fancy

hamper with plates, cutlery

and/or Cava – that would be

classified as a full blown picnic

• It can be eaten almost anywhere,

though be careful with the

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

On Thursday (excursion day) everyone, even those staying at Tyrifjord, are to

take a packed lunch with them. There will be NO lunch served at the hotel on

Thursday. The packed lunches will be available during breakfast time.

Please make sure to collect yours.

possible yoghurts whilst in

transit, it can get messy

• Packed lunches are not usually

associated with romantic ideals

of lounging on a lawn, whilst

watching people play tennis in

flowing skirts with random

harp music playing in the back

ground – that again would be

classified as a picnic

• Packed lunches are considered

to be a sign of an organised

person – you avoid running

around desperately looking for

food in an alien environment

whilst your blood sugar is

plummeting to unreasonable

depths resulting in the purchase

of an item of food which in

hindsight should have been

avoided at all costs

Finally to quote the slightly dubious

7

source of Wikipedia:

A packed lunch is a lunch prepared

at home and carried to be eaten somewhere

else, such as school, a workplace

or at an outing. The food can be

carried in a lunchbox or wrapped in

paper, plastic or foil. While packed

lunches are usually taken from home

by the people who are going to eat

them, in Mumbai, India, tiffin boxes

are most often picked up from the

home and brought to workplaces later

in the day by so-called dabbawallas. It

is today also possible to buy packed

lunches from stores in several countries.

In the United States, an informal meeting

at work, over lunch, where everyone

brings a packed lunch, is a

brown-bag lunch or colloquially a

"brown bag", and the practice

known as brownbagging. There are

also white and other color bags for

seasonal use.

One such brown bag lunch was

used as a deliberate rebuff, of the

Chinese hosts, by the United States

delegation at peace negotiations

during the Korean War in Kaesong.

The Chinese hosts offered

lunch and watermelon to the U.S.

guests, which the U.S. delegates,

who considered lunching with

one's opposition to be fraternizing

with the enemy, rejected in favour

of their own packed lunches. [1]

Ida A. Lerfald er kulturansvarlig

i Arrkom. Hun sier at hun er veldig

trøtt, og har lyst til å kaldkvæle

mannen med gressklipperen.

Etter å ha hentet en genser

til seg selv og en jakke til intervjueren

for å høyne komforten

på balkongen, gjør hun et tappert

forsøk på å svare.

Hva var din favorittbok som barn?

Jeg var også [i likhet med Annika]

veldig glad i Ronja Røverdatter. Hun var

en vilter jente som jeg også ønsket å

være. Ingen har et ”vårskrik” som

Ronja.(Intervjuen påpekte at kvinnelige

actionhelter (heltinner) påfallende ofte

har en far men mangler en mor—en

ødipal ønskeoppfyllelsessituasjon

(eksemplifisert ved

Nancy Drew og Lara

Croft) og det førte til en

videre diskusjon om ødipale

temaer i litteraturen).

Som barn var jeg veldig

fascinert av Tove Janssons

Trollvinter. Den er både

kald og varm, den er

skummel, vakker og sår.

Særlig sitter karakteren

Too-tikki tydelig i minnet.

Hvilken bok holder du på

å lese nå?

En bok som heter Hvis en

reisende en vinternatt av Italo

Calvino. Jeg er litt usikker

på hva jeg synes om boka.

Jeg bare kommet til side

10. Jeg leser også opp

igjen En Midtsommernattsdrøm

av Shakespeare. Kan-

I LENESTOLEN III

skje ikke så veldig originalt, men jeg

er veldig fascinert av hvordan han belyser

begjærsobjektet i forhold til

”tilgjengelighet”.

Hvilken bok har endret din livsoppfatning?

Det er jo ingen bok som egentlig har

endret min livsoppfatning, men Bergljot

Hobæk Haffs Skammen som har rørt

meg veldig. Skammen viser hvor hudløs

eller sårbar verden kan være mot folk

som på den ene siden tilsynelatende

ikke makter å stå opp for seg selv,

men at de likevel gjør det. Hovedkarakteren

i boken blir umyndiggjort, og

direkte og indirekte utstøtt av samfunnet.”Skammen”

bidrar til at hun virkelig

må stå opp for seg selv for å oppnå

selvrespekt. Dette bidrar til refleksjon

i forhold til eget liv.

8

Hvilken bok har gjort deg sint?

Det høres ut som bøker skal bevege så

veldig mye. Jo, de skal jo det... Det er

en bok hvor jeg husker jeg ble veldig

irritert, men også lei meg på grunn av

karakteren. Det er Torborg Nederaas

Av måneskinn gror det ingenting – en

totalt selvutslettende karakter. Jeg ble

jo veldig frustrert av Lolita også, selv

om dette i bunn og grunn er en dypt

sår historie.

Hvilken bok skulle du ønske du hadde

skrevet selv?

Hmm, det har jeg tenkt veldig mye

på. Det måtte i så fall være en veldig

uoffisiell biografi om Selma Lagerlöf...

Sven Trygve Haabeth alias Lord

Pantzer, er DJ og kom inn i løpet

av intervjuet med Ida. Han begynte

å gi sine egne svar på

spørsmålene, og fristelsen til å

gjøre et intervju med ham også

ble overveldende.

Hva var din favorittbok som barn?

"De tre musketerer" Siden den gang

har jeg alltid ønsket å være musketer.

Det var min mor som leste den for

meg da jeg var liten. Min mor har nok

preget meg ganske mye, sier han for å

holde fast ved det ødipale temaet.

Hvilken bok holder du på å lese nå?

Det er et par stykker. Jeg har begynt

på Hamsuns "Sult", og jeg har den

I LENESTOLEN IIII

liggende på nattbordet. Det er på tide.

Jeg burde jo ha lest den for lengst. (så

ringtre telefonen hans, og han gjorde

avtale om bandøving.) Jeg holder på

med Sherlock Holmes, "Complete

Illustrated", en samleutgave med alle

historiene, som leser litt innimellom.

Hvilken bok har endret din livsoppfatning?

Da er vi på "Den nikomakiske etikk".

Jeg fant vel en god del gode svar på

vanskelige spørsmål, som en analyse av

hva det gode er. For en romantiker

som jeg er er det en god ting at man

bruker ord som det edle , det vakre og

det skjønne.Når vi nå først er inne på

romantikken, kan jeg nevne den andre

boken, "Sir Nigel", en klassisk ridderroman

av Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

(som også skrev "Sherlock Holmes").

9

Hvilken bok har gjort deg sint?

Jeg blir vel ikke så veldig sint av bøker

egentlig. Jeg har vel ikke lest noe som

virkelig har gjort meg sint, men jeg

har blitt lettere irritert av alt jeg har

lest av Kant. Men det blir jo mer at jeg

synes det er litt håpløst – jeg blir oppgitt

snarer enn sint. Kant er dum.

Hvilken bok skulle du ønske du hadde

skrevet selv?

Jeg driver jo og planlegger noen bøker

da. Jeg skal skrive noen historiske romaner

satt i vikingtiden. Det ville jo

bli litt dumt å si at en bok jeg har lest

skulle jeg ønske jeg hadde skrevet selv,

for da ville jeg jo ikke fått lest den.

Her mere end 50 år efter NSU’s og 40 år

efter 68’s fødsel, vil vi etablere en kreds om

kønsforskningens udvikling og stade i de

nordiske lande. Kvindebevægelsen er vel

den bevægelse, der gennem de sidste 50 år

har medvirket til og været bærer af de

største samfundsmæssige forandringer i de

vestlige og især de nordiske lande. Men det

er gået ganske forskelligt i landene både

med arbejdet med den formelle ligestilling

og med den mere aktivistiske feminisme.

Samtidigt har vi i Norden den opfattelse, at

vi stadig er foran, at kønsforskningen og den

ligestillingsmæssige praksis er eksemplarisk

for en række lande både inden for EU og

den øvrige del af verden.

Vi vil tage udgangspunkt i en

tværvidenskabelig kønsteoretisk

samtidsdiagnose, der kan indeholde

historiske, komparative, filosofiske,

litteraturvidenskabelige, pædagogiske,

politologiske og sociologiske dimensioner.

I den sammenhæng vil vi arbejde med:

kønsforskning og ligestilling i Norden –

herunder hvorledes ligestilling og

feminisme spiller sammen med demokrati,

nyliberalisme og krise

hvordan kønsteoretiske strømninger fra

feminisme til queerteori giver sig til kende i

forskning og diskurser

hvordan ligestilling i Norden bruges

eksemplarisk – og visse steder ligefrem

overhales - i Europa og den tredje verden

hvorledes kan feminismen være med til at

sætte en anden og bæredygtig

samfundsmæssig dagsorden ?

Kønsforskning og ligestilling i

Norden – herunder hvorledes

igestilling og feminisme spiller

sammen med demokrati,

nyliberalisme og krise

De udfordringer verden står over for i dag,

aktuelt med den finansielle og økonomiske

krise, stigende ulighed og

klimaudfordringer giver grund til at antage,

at der er behov for at genoptage og

MANSJETTFORSLAG

KØN I NORDEN

revurdere spørgsmålet om ligestillingens og

feminismens betydning for en bæredygtig,

demokratisk samfundsudvikling.

Forholdet mellem stat og civilsamfund,

privat og offentlig sektor er under hastig

forandring. New Public Management

(NPM) har afgørende betydning for

kvinders og mænds position og muligheder

på arbejdsmarkedet og dermed roller og

status i såvel samfundet som privatsfæren.

Hvordan kønsteoretiske

strømninger fra feminisme til

queerteori giver sig til kende i

forskning og diskurser

I de senere år har man ikke kunnet sige

kønsforskning uden også at sige queerteori.

Vi vil undersøge i hvilket omfang feminisme

- og queerteorierne udfordrer hinanden i

forhold til de begreber – magt, ulighed,

køn, privat/offentlig, frigørelse m. m. –

feminismen traditionelt har taget

udgangspunkt i.

I denne sammenhæng er det relevant at se

på forskellige historiske kontekster og

hvordan tænkningen om kvindens plads i

samfundet har påvirket samtidens

kønsteoretiske perspektiver.

Hvordan Norden på ligestilling

bruges eksemplarisk – og visse steder

overhales - i Europa og den tredje

verden

På feminismesymposiet holdt professor

11

Drude Dahlerup en forelæsning om sine

empiriske studier om dels

ligestillingsforståelser i svenske og danske

partier og dels om brug af kvoter i en række

udviklingslande (Irak, Afghanistan, Asien og

Afrika). Nogle af pointerne var her

- at Skandinavien ikke længere var

foregangslande, men også at landenes tro

på, at vi var det, ofte havde drevet

udviklingen i de pågældende lande, hvor

kvotering f. eks. var kontroversielt, men

trendy (og alle troede, at vi havde det).

- at de ”små skridt” her var afløst af

kvalitative spring, mens man i Skandinavien

stadig satser på ”udviklingen” i. e. ”de små

skridts metode”, uanset man må konstatere,

at ikke mange skridt er taget de sidste 10 år.

- at ligestilling i disse lande ikke blot ansås

for et spørgsmål om retfærdighed eller

konstitutionelle rettigheder, men snarere

som en indlysende forudsætning for at

færdiggøre demokratiet og udnytte alle

samfundets ressourcer.

Disse problemstillinger vil vi gerne arbejde

langt mere med

Hvorledes feminismen kan være med

til at sætte en ny samfundsmæssig

dagsorden ?

Når vi har set på historien, nyliberalisme,

krise, NPM, kønsteorier og verden

omkring os, vil forsøge at komme med et

bud på, hvorledes feminismen kunne

bredes ud og i højere grad være med til at

sætte en dagsorden for diskussioner om

magt, ligestilling og indflydelse med henblik

på en bæredygtig samfundsudvikling i

Norden. Her vil vi trække på de erfaringer,

som bliver gjort i disse år på Island og

Grønland, hvor de gamle magtstrukturer er

brudt sammen og kvinderne i vid
