THE COMING INSURRECTION
RETURN TO ENGAGED DEVOTION TO TIQQUN & IMAGE FUNDAMENTALISM <3
The “dictatorship of beauty” is also the dictatorship of ugliness. It doesn’t mean the violent hegemony of a certain paradigm of beauty, but in a much more radical way, the hegemony of the physical simulacrum as a form of the objectivity of beings. Understood as such, it is clear that nothing prevents such a dictatorship from extending to all people, whether beautiful, ugly, or indifferent.
The Young-Girl is a crisis of coherence knotting up the intestines of commodity society in the last quarter of its era. She is the response to the imperative of the total commodification of existence in all its aspects, to the need to ensure that nothing remains anymore outside of the commodity-form in what is still, in an euphemistic way, called “human relationships.”
The mission the Young-Girl has received is to re-enchant the bleak world of the commodity and to delay the disaster with joy and carefreeness. In her a second degree form of consumption is primed: the consumption of consumers. So far as one could tell from looking only at appearances, which in a number of cases has become legitimate, one might say that the commodity has, with the Young-Girl, achieved total annexation of the non-commodity.
The Young-Girl’s ass represents the last bastion of the illusion of use value, which has so manifestly disappeared from the surface of all that exists. The irony, of course, is that this value itself is still an exchange.
In the Spectacle, one might say about the Young-Girl what Marx said about money: that it is “a special commodity that is set aside by the common action of all other commodities and serves to expose their reciprocal value.”

When French illustrator Thomas Lamadieu looks upward, he sees the world differently than most. In his imaginative mind, he perceives the odd formations created by tall buildings as the basis for playful illustrations. To create his Sky Art, the artist first photographs odd perspectives of various urban skylines. He then fills in the strange shapes between building and atmosphere with whimsical drawings in Microsoft Paint.
