(p.86) 30 Destruction
Technologies of Critique

This chapter illustrates the diagram of critical performance or Benjaminian destruction that stresses singularity for each and every case. It reviews the performance of installation and montage, but above all the coimplication of each of limits and excesses. A coimplication that relaunches interruptions and destabilizations, disturbing homogeneity, totality, and position in the topical turbulence and systematic desistence from identity. The chapter also explains the performative tactility that releases virtualities in situ where the tensions between technological strata of performance will destroy the installations, distributions, and terminologies. It describes destructive performance that are arranged as blockages and specific apparatuses of mediation, work, containment, and capitalization.

Keywords:   critical performance, Benjaminian destruction, coimplication, topical turbulence, systematic desistence, destructive performance
