Unignorable exteriors and unnavigable interiors

Chapter


Abstract


  • If Deleuze and Guattari's nomadic thought can be said to apply to specific

    places, then airports and art galleries are surely just such spaces. After all,

    what could be more nomadic than an airport, the gateway to anywhere in the

    world your desire and credit card can take you? Similarly, what could be more

    nomadic than an art gallery, filled as it is with examples of wild, unrestrained

    creativity? Yet one might also say the very opposite, because they are also

    highly circumscribed and gridded spaces with rigorous schedules and tight

    access rules. The final chapter of A Thousand Plateaus, which is in many ways

    its most concrete chapter, takes up precisely this problem by proposing a

    distinction between two different types of space: the smooth and the striated.
