This chapter examines the heterogenesis of fleeing, focusing on the video installations of Spanish artist and activist Marcelo Expósito. It argues that the insertion of contemporary art into processes of social production requires its removal from art in its institutional sense, and explains that this operation allows artists to develop aesthetic strategies of both intervention and organisation within militant political movements. The chapter suggests that Expósito's video works actualise the twofold fleeing and invention (of searching/finding the weapon) movement to be found in different variations in Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari.

Keywords:   fleeing, Marcelo Expósito, video installations, contemporary art, social production, political movements, aesthetic strategies, Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari
