In Defense of the Poor Image

4.85  ·  Rating details ·  33 ratings  ·  1 review
"The poor image is no longer about the real thing—the originary original. Instead, it is about its own real conditions of existence: about swarm circulation, digital dispersion, fractured and flexible temporalities. It is about defiance and appropriation just as it is about conformism and exploitation.

In short: it is about reality."
