Brunkebergsåsen – Image to Thing

March 28, 2018

“He sings about a new brand of hero, just in time for the neoliberal revolution.”

“Yet Bowie’s hero is no longer a subject, but an object: a thing, an image,(…)”

“(…)if identification is to go anywhere, it has to be with this material aspect of the image, with the image as thing, not as representation. And then it perhaps ceases to be identification, and instead becomes participation.”

– Steyerl, Hito. ‘A Thing Like You and Me’ in e-flux Journal #15 April 2010
