A Diary of my Encounters

Evreinov was occupied with the spectacle’s theatrical, dramaturgical side. Due to its immense size, the production was directed collectively: Evreinov was the director-in-chief, followed by Kugel, Petrov, Derzhavin, and myself. I also designed the scenery and the costumes. My stage sets spanned the entire width of Palace Square and reached up to the third floor of the General Staff. They consisted of two huge platforms (a White and a Red one), connected by a steep bridge. There were around 8,000...

Après les avant-gardes

Il me semble que le mot « avant-garde » a toujours été pour moi une espèce de souvenir. J’ai dû l’entendre autour de 1960, alors que le surréalisme ne se portait déjà plus très bien. Presque en même temps je découvrais Bataille et Artaud, que n’accompagnait aucune étiquette d’avant-garde. Mais c’est l’ensemble du climat de pensée qui se modifiait de manière profonde dans les après-coups de la guerre.

Les avant-gardes – ou du moins ce nom : il ne s’agit que de son usage – ont eu d’emblée pour moi un goût de passé. D’arrière-garde, en somme. Je ne plaisante pas : je pense que le soupçon porté sur la nature militaire de la métaphore était déjà présent dans le contexte où je découvrais le mot. Pourquoi fallait-il que l’art opère comme une armée ? Il y avait un doute. Ce n’était pas tant l’idée de la lutte ou du combat qui était préoccupante...

So many egoists call themselves artists…

“So many egoists call themselves artists,” Rimbaud wrote to Paul Demeny on May 15, 1871. Even though that is not always obvious, ‘I’, the first person, is the most unknown person, a mystery that is constantly moving towards the other two, the second and third persons, a series of unfoldings and smatterings that eventually gelled as ‘Je est un autre’. That is why ‘apocryphal’ is a literarily irrelevant concept and ‘pseudo’ a symptom, the very proof that life, writing, is made up of echoes, which means that intrusions and thefts (Borges also discusses them) will always be the daily bread of those who write.

Words from others, words taken out of place and mutilated: here are the alms of time, that squanderer’s sole kindness. And so many others, mostly others who wrote, and many other pages, all of them apocryphal, all of them echoes, reflections. All this flows together into—two centuries...

From xenolinguistics to cephalo­pods

Xenolinguistics

If ever humans should face creatures from outer space, they would ­surely have to find a way of dealing with the aliens and—supposing they would have such a thing: with their languages. The branch of linguistics dedicated to the study of such languages from outer space is commonly referred to as xenolinguistics. For the time being, xenolinguistics is an essentially speculative and certainly radical exercise of conceiving the diverse. We have asked a series of specialists from different fields that...
