   schema:description ""Here one tracks the chaotic imagination, and the emergent literatures that follow in its wake, searching after a certain breaking-point of thought from which there is no return. As such, this work explores some of the most elusive movements of the Middle Eastern new wave, following their experiments with the limits of the writing-act and the original concepts they generate (annihilation, desertion, contagion, shadow-becoming, the inhuman). What surfaces, in the end, is a rising language of blindness and burial, one that, though often secretive, convoluted, and even encrypted, might hold the passcodes for a still-unfolding future"--"@en ;
