a dalsi clanek od janell watson (autorkou imho nejlepsiho uvodu do guattariho: Guattaris diagrammatic thought¨)
The mass popular dissent which has marked the early twenty-first
century, from al-Qaeda to the Arab Spring to the Occupy movement,
can be read as expressions of collective, subjective, existential mutation.
This reading is inspired by Félix Guattari, who described the 1979
Iranian revolution, the Polish Solidarity movement and the 1989 Chinese
student demonstrations as demands for subjective singularisation. In
each of these examples of social discontent, past and present, demands
vary widely even within the same movement, spanning economics,
lifestyle, religion and politics, and ranging from cries for liberation
to conservative returns to ancient tradition. In order to perform
a schizoanalysis of such amorphous movements, Guattari developed
a four-part ecosophic object, composed of existential Territories,
Universes of value, material-energetic Flows and machinic Phyla.
Assemblages can be dynamically mapped along these four dimensions.
Of crucial importance in the age of extreme deterritorialisation is
the existential Territory, which could potentially take the form of
a homeland based on poetry or music rather than on ethnicity or
even place. Such portable homelands would characterise the dissensual
processual post-media era for which Guattari longed.
