ADRIAN RIFKIN

is a Professor of Art Writing at the Goldsmiths University of London. Currently, he is working on a book length text provisionally titled Losing myself. This is a series of engagements with and against the autobiographical as the figure of an archive – whether historical, theoretical or imaginary. Each section will be an attempt to map or interrogate moments of my own life against their determinants, conditions or outcome, but in such a way as to secure diffusion rather than focus, dispersal against coherence and logic, complex series of uncontrollable ‘events’ rather than sensible narratives. In doing this he wants to explore how what we call cultural theory becomes possible in a description of living, but as if living is not what belongs to him. The essay Chreographesis on his web site is a draft for a little of this work.
