Badiou : ses positions en art

Badiou : ses positionnements en art

« Is there the future for the contemporary art? » (in Alain Badiou – Contemporary Art Confronting the 21st Century)

(pure cutting)

The rose is obsolete
but each petal ends in
an edge, the double facet
cementing the grooved
columns of air–The edge
cuts without cutting
meets–nothing–renews
itself in metal or porcelain–

whither? It ends–

But if it ends
the start is begun
so that to engage roses
becomes a geometry–

William Carlos Williams 1923
