[Commlist] Inscriptions 3, n1: Outsourced! Mediatisation and revolt published

Wed Jan 08 14:37:33 GMT 2020

Inscriptions, an international journal of contemporary thinking on art, philosophy, and psycho-analysis, vol. 3, no. 1, is available Open Access at

Outsourced! Mediatisation and revolt
Outsourcing is a way to get someone else to act on our behalf. In psycho-analysis the term is also used for instances of exteriorised reception, politics, or belief. This issue of Inscriptions considers cases when such outsourcing is non-subjectivised, i.e. when there is a knowledge "out there," in the Real, but where it is not yet possible to say who it is that believes. Tidhar Nir's essay on the experience of shock in art explores how the ego can be resituated within such knowledges, while Jørgen Veisland proposes a model for how the artistic imagination shields itself from, and yet incorporates, knowledges "in the Real." This "Real" is very much present in the work of our editor Sharif Abdunnur, who explains what it is like to teach in the context of an ongoing revolt in Lebanon. We also present a series of paste-ups and murals by the street artist AFK that bring up complex debates while also giving us a glimpse into the holy.
