Abstract

"In July 1905, in Paris, a young 
Anglo-French woman called Marie Wheeler became the bride of a Swiss 
émigré, Johannes Schad. Immediately after the wedding, Marie and 
Johannes moved to London. And there they lived for nineteen years. In 
1924, however, something happened to change their lives, and Marie, in 
many respects, simply disappeared.
Paris Bride is an exploration of 
the lost life of Marie Schad, of whom little is known beyond a few legal
 papers, a number of letters, some photographs, the diaries of a friend,
 and her obituary. With so little else known of Marie’s life, this book 
seeks to read her back into existence by drawing on a host of 
contemporaneous texts — largely modernist texts, by Virginia Woolf, 
Franz Kafka, the Paris Surrealists, Stéphane Mallarmé, Oscar Wilde, 
Katherine Mansfield, and Walter Benjamin. All of the selected authors 
are connected with Marie through some coincidence of time, place, or 
theme.
In an attempt to do justice to Marie’s in-visibility, or to her un-life, Paris Bride
 takes as its guide Wilde’s declaration that “the true function of 
criticism is to see the object as in itself it really is not.” In other 
words, this book seeks to evade the positivist or realist assumptions of
 conventional literary criticism, and instead pursue a post-critical 
method with its sources and texts. Paris Bride is not confined 
to academic discourse but instead draws on a range of literary genres 
and devices that are more in sympathy with the non-realist character of 
modernism itself — devices such as fragmentation, flânerie, textual 
collage, stream of consciousness, imagism, perspectivism, dream-text, 
the absurd, etc. Ultimately, Paris Bride is a modernistic experiment in life-writing."

Abstract

This collection of critical essays concentrates on the renowned Finnish collage novel Aperitiff ‒ avoin kaupunki (Aperitiff, Open City) by Kari Aronpuro in its three editions (1965, 1978, 2015). The essays provide a theoretically wide-ranging and up-to-date introduction to Aperitiff but also to collage and the collage novel more generally. Aperitiff is approached from the viewpoints of source materials; information, media technologies, and conceptualism; facsimiles as images of writing; methodological and thematic humour and comedy; Situationist reading strategies; realist and neorealist cinema; and Aperitiff‘s relation to the contemporary Finnish experimental novel, especially to Neuromaani by Jaakko Yli-Juonikas. The collection also reprints Aronpuro’s early essay on the reception of Aperitiff, and extracts from the typescript of the novel’s second edition.

Abstract

Mes images en papier ont cet avantage que, si je m’octroie le culot d’en coller dans la ville, en trois minutes, quelqu’un peut les refuser et les déchirer. Le pochoir anéantit cette réciprocité, comme certains tags : il a un côté égoïste (je salope le mur et vous emmerde tous). J’aime bien que mes images puissent être refusées. La fragilité, comme la date, fait partie de la proposition plastique. Je crois que, si mes images ont ému, c’est qu’inconsciemment le public les a perçues comme fragiles, qu’il sait que leur mort est annoncée, qu’elles vont disparaître, et cela ajoute à la force suggestive de la chose.

Abstract

Mike Mosher’s “Some Aspects of Californian Cyberpunk” vividly reminds us of the influence of West Coast counterculture on cyberpunks, with special emphasis on 1960s theoretical gurus such as Timothy Leary and Marshall McLuhan, who explored the frontiers of inner space as well as the global village. Frenchy Lunning’s “Cyberpunk Redux: Dérives in the Rich Sight of Post-Anthropocentric Visuality” examines how the heritage of Ridley Scott’s techno-noir film
