Schriftatlas I, 9a

The objective is not to master the subject. Rather, it is to subject mastery to hazard, to shelter mastery from the subject of objectivity.

The art is not to acquire knowledge, nor to reside in knowledge, nor to work through or out of knowledge. Rather, it is to conjure up passions utterly inadequate to any single knowledge in particular.

A strategic inadequation, then–a masterful an-expertise–shall constitute the highest modality of artistic expression, the frontier of aesthetic judgement, the plenitude of poetic form.

To the artist I offer this as the only legitimate aspiration: one must design one’s own incompetency… in the form of an infra-competency. (I, 9a)
