(p.246) Chapter 14 Anti-Electra: Totemism and Schizogamy
Deleuze and Contemporary Art

Elisabeth von Samsonow

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter offers us the figure of ‘becoming-girl’ as a post-Freudian feminist anti-Electra, explaining that the girl is in possession of a logos of creation because she controls the means of production of the human itself, whether we discuss the imaginary of birth or the potency of artistic production. It also discusses the relevant issues of schizo-technology, Daedalian objects, totemism, and schizogamy.

Keywords:   becoming-girl, Freudian feminist, anti-Electra, logos of creation, artistic production, schizo-technology, Daedalian objects, totemism, schizogamy
