"Fragmentation, the mark of a coherence all the more substantial for being attained through the necessity of undoing itself - not by a dispersed system, nor through fragmentation as a system, but by staging in pieces (a shredding of) what has never existed (ideally or otherwise) as a whole and may not again in some future guise reconstitute itself. The spacing through a timing that can only be grasped - fallaciously - as the absence of time."(Maurice Blanchot, The Writing of the Disaster (University of Nebraska Press, 1986), Ann Smock, translator. However, the translation used here is mine (Victor Muñoz) and differs slightly from Smock's. | The Journal as Art: "Impossible Text" | Victor Muñoz )
