Abstract :
Contends that the works of five contemporary Los Angeles artists (Mike Kelley, Jim Shaw, Larry Johnson, Nancy Barton, Richard Hawkins) reflect the schizophrenic and fragmentary nature of the city of Los Angeles in the period of late capitalism. Sees the proliferation of signs, rupture of center, and dissonant representations of self, which are all characteristics of the work of these artists, as products of the decentered structural economies of Los Angeles as well as the schizophrenic flows described in Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari's Anti-Oedipus. Relates the imagery and themes of these Los Angeles artists to three mechanisms which Deleuze and Guattari identify as being involved in these shizoid flows-the desiring-machines, the body without organs, and the nomadic subject. ;
