Show Summary Details


This chapter examines Gilles Deleuze's view on the relationship of politics to art and his thoughts about fabulation and narration. It discusses Deleuze's reflection on the modern problem of the ‘creation of a people’ and his opinion that an interactive process emerges that connects art and the people when a people begins to take form. It explains that though Deleuze nowhere elaborates at length on the idea of fabulation, it forms part of a rich complex of concepts central to his approach to the ethics and politics of art.

Keywords: politics; art; Gilles Deleuze; fabulation; narration; people; ethics; politics of art
