Politics and Friendship // reading this interview with JD

"Now, to take literally Geoff’s question which I have in front of me: I don’t think that even now I am answering the demand for politics, that is to propose something which could fit into what one calls in our tradition, politics. What I am trying to do now, especially in the books Spectres of Marx or in the Politics of Friendship, is to try to understand or to re- think, I’m not the only one doing that of course, but to try with others to re-think what the political is, what is involved precisely in the dissemination of the political field. So, I’m not proposing a new political content within the old frame but trying to re-define, or to think differently, what is involved in the political as such, and for the very same reason I don’t propose a political theory because what I’m saying, specifically on friendship and hospitality, on what friendship is and what hospitality is, exceeds, precisely, knowledge. In its extreme and more essential form it has to do with something which cannot become a theoreme, it is something which simply has to be known, there is some type of experience, of political experience in friendship and hospitality which cannot be simply the object of a theory. Which is not an anti-theoretical move; I think political theory is necessary, but I try to articulate this necessity of a political theory with something in politics or in friendship, in hospitality, which cannot, for structural reasons, become the object of knowledge, of a theory, of a theoreme."

Wanted to do something different this evening so I decided to break out the Gouache. It was a nice break from the usual digital sketch! It’s late so the picture isn’t that great. I’ll try to remember to take a better one in the morning when the sun is out.
I attached a picture of my work space just to prove this one was done traditionally. Man do I make an awful mess of my palette. Ah well XD

It’s Labor Day. #888

"By extending the working day, therefore, capitalist production… produces the premature exhaustion and death of this labour power itself."

Karl Marx, Das Kapital

Wishing I was in Ferguson w/ comrades. Had to sit this one out, but just want to say that I am so inspired by y’all’s statuses and pictures and videos. Thank you.
