Keith Bormuth: The Occasion of Fracture

Keith Bormuth’s The Occasion of Fracture traces the notion that media fulfills itself in a phatic relationship to knowledge. Following a ghost image of Reyner Banham’s seminal text on Los Angeles, Bormuth melds the on-screen laughter of the 1940s Hollywood star Irene Dunne with the show Gossip Girl, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s posthumously published The Crack Up, and the cameo appearance by Georges Bataille as a priest in Jean Renoir’s film Partie de Campagne. Composed in 11 themes, the text seeks to fracture the semblance images have as things.

Softcover, 6.25" x 9.5", 28 pages, , edition of 500
