Editorial

The project The Intimate Subversion is developed from the starting point of Non olet, a work from 2011 which engages with the construction of the most important productive matrix of late capitalism, namely financial money. Over and above the abstraction which defines and enables the socio-political order and the legal property it establishes, the metaphor of the lack of smell and materialness is the biological, testimonial and meaningful response to a model of capitalism that, by aspiring to limitless accumulation, introduces into society a schizophrenic order that puts money above states, politics and the very economy of production itself.
The world uncovered in The Intimate Subversion is not shown to us as a critique of the real or as a denouncement of the simulacrum of deficit of reality. What it does expose is that the world that we live in is a world reduced to the financeable. That is the real of the contemporary virtuality, and, in facing it, the artist joins many others who address their actions in the open spaces of the economy of affect.
What can be done when the subject / actor / agent is absorbed by the place of the capitalist distribution of money? What can be done when the management of politics and knowledge becomes the constitutive factor in the new global monetary hegemony? These and other questions underpin the basic body of the project The Intimate Subversion.
