Voices from a symposium on the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze

Much of the work of Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) is still to be discovered and re-discovered. Until recently his works were not particularly known in the English speaking world. But since a few years back his philosophy has begun to make impact on a range of disciplines such as the theories of art, architecture, literature, film, psychoanalyse, feminism etc. At a symposium, held at Art Node in Stockholm, nine international guests were brought together to present their views on Deleuze.
   This symposium was initiated by Sven-Olov Wallenstein (editor of Material - Journal of Contemporary Art), Helena Mattsson (architect and Ph.D.student at the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm) and Johan Kilander (architect). Art Orbit is happy to present some of the lectures in text and/or sound.
