In Hito Steyerl's writing we begin to see how, even if the hopes and desires for coherent collective political projects have been displaced onto images and screens, it is precisely here that we must look frankly at the technology that seals them in.

The Wretched of the Screen collects a number of Steyerl's landmark essays from recent years in which she has steadily developed her very own politics of the image. Twisting the politics of representation around the representation of politics, these essays uncover a rich trove of information in the formal shifts and aberrant distortions of accelerated capitalism, of the art system as a vast mine of labor extraction and passionate commitment, of occupation and internship, of structural and literal violence, enchantment and fun, of hysterical, uncontrollable flight through the wreckage of postcolonial and modernist discourses and their unanticipated openings.

This stuff is so fresh it hurts. I am shocked and shaken and overstimulated. I've stumbled into someone else's too-real dream. It's so exciting that someone with the perceptiveness, sensitivity to language and willingness to look behind what's being pushed in front of us as Sara Ahmed is at work at the screenface of art and the biopolitics of disaster capitalism, determinedl version 1.

It's so exciting that someone with the perceptiveness, sensitivity to language and willingness to look behind what's being pushed in front of us as Sara Ahmed is at work at the screenface of art and the biopolitics of disaster capitalism, determinedly seeing things differently. The conditions of crisis are taken as read. Franco 'Bifo' Beradi writes in the introduction The year was a watershed: from the age of human evolution the world shifted to the age of de-evolution, or de-civilization.

What had been built through labor and social solidarity began to be dissipated by a rapid and predatory process Adrainage pump started to swallow and destroy the product of years of industriousness and collective intelligence But I'm finding it difficult to process my feelings about the positions Steyerl takes in relation to this situation. Where do I begin my response? Well, as always I will have to begin from where I am. And I have a sneaking suspicion that Steyerl has described the terrain around me, white female disgruntled freelance worker, all too accurately I can't claim to have understood all this, no way, it went past too fast, like a ride.

Steyerl eloquently elaborates the HORIZONtality of colonialism as expressed and enmeshed in the artistic tradition of linear perspective. Only now there are no edges to the colonial project, and the perspective has changed; now we have the strategy game, the CCTV god's eye view, we have 3D. Colonization as 3D surveillance. And the gaze of this war is outsourced to machines, it is disembodied. And we are all falling in this space, but there is no ground.

But Steyerl never panics, disconcertingly she keeps prodding me to Existential nausea is privilege escape it in housework. It's a more effective resistance. Nausea is immobilising after all. Liberal politics produces denial, worthless apologies and delusions of purity. Steyerl has the formidable courage of her frightening convictions.

Taking a Closer Look at The Wretched – The Sufferfest

Here is the structure and here is my complicity. Now what am I going to do? Work to occupation. Art as occupation. Steyerl pushes the two meanings of this word together, like a fertility therapist stimulating a ball of embryonic cells to divide. What will this concept grow into or give birth to? Well, gentrification and its role in the military industrial complex, for one thing? In fact, it looks like contemporary 'semiocapitalism' as envisioned and enversioned by collaborating art and its army of unalienated un der paid female strike workers, connects everything so comprehensively that its probably impossible to make a really preposterous connection, everything is permitted or just done anyway and however many times Steyerl makes me spit out my tea I end up conceding the point.

History, as [Walter] Benjamin told us, is a pile of rubble. Only we are not staring at it any longer from the point of view of Benjamin's shell-shocked angel.

We are not the angel. We are the rubble. We are this pile of scrap View all 3 comments. Feb 16, Riar rated it really liked it. I like most of Hito Steyerl's works, whether it comes in the form of essays, video installation or performance lecture. The Wretched of the Screen is perhaps one of the references that I will be revisited again and again to gain a better critical understanding of image and contemporaneity.

In this collection of her essays, Steyerl brilliantly pointed out the relationship between an image and immortality that I think important to discussed in the age what she called 'post-production. Computational images as a post-representation strategy for capitalist megastructure. Her arguments on images and what she called Circulationism are always fascinating to me, however, not all of these essays particularly strike my interest—some aspect, like the social reproduction in the art world and her critics of the connection between art infrastructure and military complex, is striking to read.

At some point, I was intrigued by her proposition in quoting Boris Arvatov's Socialist Object; 'that the object should be liberated from the enslavement of its status as capitalist commodity. What do we miss? What do we love? Intersubjectivity Vol.
