Chaos spasm

“In the mists and miasmas that cloud the end of our millennium, the question of subjectivity has become a leitmotif. Like air and water, it is not a natural given. How can we produce it, capture it, enrich it, and constantly reinvent it in such a way as to make it compatible with changing universes of value? How can we work towards its liberation, that is to say, towards its re-singularisation?
Psychoanalysis, institutional analysis, film, literature, poetry, innovative pedagogies, creative urban planning and architecture… all disciplines will have to combine their creativity to ward off the trials of barbarism, mental implosion, chaos spasm, which are looming on the horizon and to transform them into unforeseeable wealth and enjoyment, the promises of which, incidentally, are just as tangible. ”

Félix Guattari, Chaosmose, Galilée, 1992
