Fillip is a publication of art, culture, and ideas released three times a year.

Taking as its point of departure Giorgio Agamben’s suggestion that subjectivity emerges from the relentless struggle between living beings and the various apparatuses in which they are captured, Apparatus, Capture, Trace, reflects on the links between such apparatuses whose operations today appear increasingly intertwined: photography and biopolitics.

What do artists read? What articles, books, reviews — and cartoons, cookbooks, memoirs and film scripts — influence their work? Here are some answers from the participating artists in the Uncertain States of America exhibition in Oslo and London in 2005. This book, a companion to the exhibition catalog, is an eclectic compilation of material that gives the reader a deeper insight into the influences that created the show. From Dora Apel’s Art Journal article on Torture Culture to Giorgio Agamben’s Le Monde piece on his refusal to visit the United States because he will not allow electronic archiving of his fingerprints, this is a thought-provoking reader for our times.
