Product Details

Praise

The Event is a book, a made thing. It reminds me of Plato’s Symposium, written entirely in dialogue form (perhaps due to Socrates’s contempt for books), which opens with one person imploring another to tell everything that happened and everything that was said at a certain drinking party some thirty years earlier. It’s not enough to know the gist of it. The story stays ahead of its own significance, and stays alive that way. Undigested. And the things said by the protagonists often reach quite outside the frame. The book called Schizo-Culture: The Event can be taken as this kind of story work. The tidy box that it comes in is funny—a schizo-box. And the schizo is in and out of its box.—Jim Fletcher, Artforum
