My research centers on the relationship between art and aesthetic practices broadly. I am concerned to trace the aesthetic dimensions of contemporary theoretical practice. Specifically, my research seeks to develop an approach to reading art as a model (not merely an object) for theory. My recent work has been informed and enriched by the work of François Laruelle. I am currently at work on my fourth book – The Real is Radical – which examines the conceptual and visual legacy of Marxian theory in Laruelle’s work.
