A Deleuze and Guattari Conference on Philosopy, Arts and Politics

The function of philosophy is to create concepts ? Creating isn?t
communicating but resisting ? Creation takes place in choked passages.
G. Deleuze

Resonance as a nomadic concept in the philosophy of Deleuze and
Guattari still throws light and shades to our understanding of the
problematical relationship between philosophy, politics,
psychoanalysis and arts on the one hand, and the spectacle or the
specular on the other. What kind of a concept is resonance? Can it be
theorised or should it simply be left untheorised? What are its
implications for the concept of a concept? What are the conditions of
its distribution in the work of Deleuze and Guattari? If philosophy
can deviate the thought from the rule of the specular, as was
attempted by the Situationists, ?resonance? ? as it appears basically
in The Logic of Sense ? is perhaps already offering a non-relational
relationship between various pairs or binaries which, especially in
recent history and in the history of philosophy have fettered thought
to a sedentary regression. If the spectacle cannot be maintained as
such unless under certain philosophical, historical, cultural and
geographical conditions, what would be the role of resonance in
opening up new paths towards deterritorialisations particularly under
the light of an elusive concept of ?resonance? on a plane of
continuous flight?

This conference is therefore an invitation to philosophers, theorists
and artists to reconsider the concept of resonance in the work of
Deleuze and Guattari and also to see its implications for a renewal of
various theories on sex, gender, identity, politics, history,
literature, science, topology, religion, visual arts, music, sound,
media and performance. Under what conditions does thought become
specular and can thought be forced to a maddening resonance so as to
drive the critique of specular towards, say, a ?somnambulist? phase
where the undecidable is what lies between one?s eyelids.

Such a reconsideration of ?resonance? requires without doubt
deterritorialisations of not only Deleuze and Guattari?s, but also
thought?s relation to the philosophies of Spinoza, Leibniz, Kant,
Hegel, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Tarde, Bergson and Freud. A
scrutinisation of such relationships will not only reformulate the
present theories but hopefully will put forward new ones.

Panel proposals, individual proposals and performance proposals are
encouraged but not limited to following areas:-

Madness, Schizo-analysis, Hysteria, Histrionics
Addiction, Altered states
Macro/Micro Perceptions
Year Zero
Minor literature
