Perform-a-Text: “Examining Carla Harryman’s Adorno’s Noise“:


Adorno’s Noise is a collection of experimental, poetic, and conceptual essays. In it, Harryman takes a stunning plunge into a kaleidoscopic world of globalization, female sexuality, the place of art and artist, and the looming power of the state. Phrases from Theodor Adorno’s aphoristic philosophical text, Minima Moralia, serve as catalysts for an explosion of thought and language that quickly breaks Adorno’s orbit”
