Sue Golding (johnny de philo) - abstract
en passant [or how pawn captures king]
 


En passant: or how pawn learned to capture king plays out the game of power as an art form. "en passant" (as many chess officianados will immediately register) is a peculiar move, open only to the pawn, which, if taken, changes the entirety of the game. If one is to take seriously the jettisoning of "binary oppositions", two things are necessary (though perhaps not sufficient): the refusal to base one‘s moves within the context of "trust", and the ability or not to recognise the rules of the game as game, not law. A new kind of barbarism to be sure (well, I want to say "yes", but not exactly). Text, video, sound presentation.
