'In a series of deeply thought, and entirely original chapters, the book explores the potentialities of Deleuze and Guattari's theories of impersonality and effects, and substitutes the idea of subjectivization for that of "the" subject. The book is expert in deploying its arguments towards a coherent and original conclusion, even as it admits of a wide range of philosophical and ideological positions as counterpoints.' Anthony Vidler,The Cooper Union, New York, USA 'In the last twenty years, the literature on Deleuze in art and architecture has mushroomed. In this book, Simone Brott not only shows a strong sense of development in this larger literature; she also defines a new workable position.' John Rajchman, Columbia University, USA
