Laying out this theory of Âunbecoming communityâ in modern and contemporary art, literature, and philosophy, and calling our attention to such things as blank sheets of paper, images of unmade beds, and the spaces around bodies,Â The Decision Between UsÂ opens in 1953, when Robert Rauschenberg famously erased a drawing by Willem de Kooning, and Roland Barthes publishedÂ Writing Degree Zero, then moves to 1980 and the Âneutral mourningâ of BarthesâÂ Camera Lucida, and ends in the early 1990s with installations by Felix Gonzalez-Torres. Offering surprising new considerations of these and other seminal works of art and theory by Jean Genet, Marguerite Duras, and Catherine Breillat,Â The Decision Between UsÂ is a highly original and unusually imaginative exploration of the spaces between us, arousing and evoking an infinite and profound sense of sharing in scenes of passionate, erotic pleasure as well as deep loss and mourning.
About: The Decision Between UsÂ combines an inventive reading of Jean-Luc Nancy with queer theoretical concerns to argue that while scenes of intimacy are spaces of sharing, they are also spaces of separation.
