Practical Deleuzism and Postmodern Space

Practical Deleuzism and Postmodern Space

(p.134) (p.135) Chapter 7 Practical Deleuzism and Postmodern Space
Deleuze and the Social

Ian Buchanan

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter explores the relation between postmodern space and practical Deleuzism. It analyses the relevant works of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari and advances three propositions relating to the analysis of contemporary space. These propositions include the idea that Alfred Hitchcock's cinema anticipated the affect of postmodern space, that the suburban shopping mall was the harbinger of postmodern space, and that the transformations that have made postmodern space what it is can be understood in terms of deterritorialisation.

Keywords:   postmodern space, practical Deleuzism, Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, contemporary space, Alfred Hitchcock, cinema, shopping mall, deterritorialisation
