“Towards Metarchy Through Merz,” by Monica Belevan (@LapsusLima)

“Through this, Schwitters confronts us with a new sublimity borne not from the jarring remove of the unhomely, but from the immediacy of its abstraction.”





“Inwardness is what eludes me.”

“Be Yourself Again,” a piece by Amina Cain about Jean Genet’s The Maids

“When I first read The Maids, I wasn’t interested in the idea of murder but in Genet’s highly charged representation of the two sisters, their crazed relationship to each other, as well as to their “Madame,” and in the depiction of class warfare in a domestic space. More recently, I’ve been thinking, too, about its mad circling of artificiality and authenticity, two sides of the same coin.”
