KNUT EBELING

Knut is professor of media studies and aesthetics at Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee.

ABSTRACT

Knut Ebeling shares his ideas about writing death. Thinking and writing through texts by Georges Bataille and Maurice Blanchot, tracing or excavating a conception of head-less writing Ebeling seeks to formulate an alternative epistemology by questioning the very foundation of knowledge production within Western philosophy. Instead of writing (as one method of (re-)producing knowledge) about/on he proposes a writing with, through or alongside. Writing then does no longer formulate itself as reflection on or about something but as head-less writing that re- or even un-organizes the very organism that functions as the (uncontested) grounding for ‘our’ relational thinking. A way of perceiving and grasping which is – in the end – bound by the powerful notion of both on and about. Instead Ebeling dearticulates this conception and offers an alternative approach that could be ‘named’ as dé-écriture (un-writing). Or as Ebeling frames it: as the practice of autotheoretical writing.
