This collection of essays from a range of philosophers and art practitioners offers tools through which we can action change across art and philosophy, across a range of media and across the theory/practice divide.

Including insights from contemporary Middle Eastern art to Indigenous ritual art and from feminist and queer art to architectural algorithms, this collection will decolonise your thinking about art - bypassing the traditional Western-centred art history.

The first section includes theoretical essays on the concept of multiplicities, on affect and politics as well as the thought of Raymond Ruyer and Gilbert Simondon - 2 key influences on Deleuze and Guattari.

The second section includes applied essays on specific art practices including the plastic arts, theatre, architecture, music and folk performances.
