Translation: Deniz Gül, there is life between us (+transparency)

Available in Pera Museum bookshop in İstanbul, Milano Kunstverein and select bookstores.


What is the gaze of philosophy? How do we see through it?

there is life between us (+transparency) is a weave of essays in dialogue with theoretical approaches to the scientific, ecological, and artistic implications of transparency as an overarching concept by which to think critically about the world today.

In 40 fragments, spanning from the Feldenkrais method to Bergsonian thought and many others, Deniz Gül explores the concept of transparency by deconstructing the Eurocentric male dominant gaze.

A concise and poetic meditation on materiality and consciousness.

“The only way out is to land. To the surface. To the skin of the earth (+terresterial). How? Through introspection. Through Latour’s oligopticon, Calvino’s Carruga, Feldenkrais’ self-image, Deleuze’s difference, Agamben’s identity without person, Martin’s flaws, Nauman’s bounces, Sıtkı Baba’s düş oluş (becoming a dream)… With Rumi’s whirl, Arachne’s web, Deligny’s wandering lines, Michaux’s fractals
