The talks gathered in Asclepias: The Milkweeds are all concerned with discrepancy and extinction. Polylingual and transdisciplinary, each essay addresses translation as a form of disagreement and photography as its mis-fitting corollary. Calling up an indiscriminate range of thinkers and artists philosophers, composers, photographers, filmmakers, poets including Ludwig Wittgenstein, Jacques Derrida, Dmitri Shostakovich, Galina Ustvolskaya, Sergio Larrain, Gunther Anders, Alejandra Pizarnik, Antonin Artaud, and Friedrich Holderlin, among many others, the resultant montage repeatedly abandons the reader to an empty, incriminating, theatre."
