Fresh, Aufhebung

Jutta Koether, artist

There is a search for an unconditional art, as in unconditional love, as in the "unconditional urgency of a Now"( Zizek). There is an interest in the images of "love under will", "desire is war", "living painting" ,the "X without X", dark glossholes, whip abyss, the Waking Up, incompleteness, ephemeral and inconsistent ideals. Whipping up some cracking doubling visualization of" Power and Performance", drenched in abysmal sounds, utterances, gestures.
Falling for a thoroughly immanent "contradiction" which preceeds any Otherness, the perpetual, fresh Aufhebung. Laughable if you will. Very. The perennial Opening Up, delivering cuts ´n gaps, preventing full closure, making visible generative reason for images, before they freeze in an exact form of communicabilty. Excess inherent and disturbing its self-identity and economies, the " ex-timate kernel, the monstrous surplus...." but then "what she really wants is to keep open the possibility of revolutionary subjectivity...." (Jutta Koether)
