Description


Poetry. In DEMOCRACY IS NOT FOR THE PEOPLE, Josef Kaplan takes up extreme forms of political speech and other "heterogeneous" discourses of the present to address the culture of advanced capitalism in the voice of its own transcendent violence. Assassination threats, the farewell letters of political suicides by self-immolation, pulp science fiction, journalistic accounts of Palestinian bombings, origami instructions, bland reports on the controversies surrounding autonomous robotic weapons systems in DINFTP, these and other unassimilable elements become the sources for a series of errant, self-winding mashups that can neither be rejected outright, because of their powerfully sculpted quality, nor fully absorbed as artistic work.
