Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

Phantom Limbs & Honeydew

This dart of love, whose piercing point, oft tried,
With virgin blood ten thousand maids have dyed
Which nature still directed with such art
That it through every cunt reached every heart -
Stiffly resolved, 'twould carelessly invade
Woman or man, nor aught its fury stayed:
Where'er it pierced, a cunt it found or made -
Now languid lies in this unhappy hour,
Shrunk up and sapless like a withered flower.

(Excerpt from A Debt to Pleasure by John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester)

SARTREAN STUDIES


© The late Henri Cartier-Bresson

The Institut Français Londres invites to a Jean-Paul Sartre Symposium that will start today - in a few hours in fact - and run until Saturday night.

KultureFlash writes:

"[...] Though Foucault disagreed with him philosophically, Sartre was the very model of the politicised thinker that he aspired to be; in fact, they frequently found themselves at the same barricades. So on the centenary year of his birth, the UK Society for Sartrean Studies is bringing together Sartreans from all over the world to speak on topics from his life to postmodernism, phenomenology, literature, among others."
