Book Description

In The Threshold of the Visible World Kaja Silverman advances a revolutionary new political aesthetic, exploring the possibilities for looking beyond the restrictive mandates of the self, and the normative aspects of the cultural image-repertoire. She provides a detailed account of the social and psychic forces which constrain us to look and identify in normative ways, and the violence which that normativity implies.


"...Silverman has managed to advance an ethical position with scrupulous lucidity, as intricate as it is compelling and inspiring." -- San Francisco Bay Guardian
