Deleuze Reframed A Guide for the Arts Student

Sutton, Damian, and David Martin-Jones

Deleuze disdains easy answers. Yet easy answers to Deleuze are what students need. Without reducing Deleuze's complex body of thought to simplistic solutions, this very contemporary guide leads the reader into the world of Deleuze's spiralling thought through concrete examples from art, film, TV and even computer games. From Mysterious Skin and The Cell to Pac Man and Doom and from the work of Robert Mapplethorpe, Coco Fusco and Rachel Whiteread to Lost and Doctor Who, this easily digestible introduction looks at the key ideas promoted by Deleuze, both in his own work and in his notoriously difficult collaborations with Felix Guattari. In doing so it makes them both fresh and relevant to the visual arts today.
