Elizabeth Grosz: Bacon, Deleuze and imperceptible forces


Professor Elizabeth Grosz addresses the complex relationship between Francis Bacon and Gilles Deleuze, who wrote one of the most perceptive and sympathetic books on Bacon’s painting, Francis Bacon: the logic of sensation (1981). Deleuze did not exactly write on Bacon so much as with him, on a question that intrigued them equally. Both artist and philosopher attempted to explore the imperceptible: the forces of magnetism and gravity, notions of causality and chance, and forces of aging and disintegration.
