(Die) Abweichung

Conceived as a fundamentally critical quantity, (the) deviation (clinamen, Abweichung) does not mark mere variation or a purely additional factor. To see it and to acknowledge it therefore means a political work and repeated effort that must be started again and again. Once more, voices are being raised for a final claim to truth and power that in no way correspond to the growing complexity of social conditions. In view of this problem, a figure of thought is needed which can oppose identity-based thinking with an uninterrupted shift. In this sense, Maja Bogumila Hoffmann develops the concept of deviation - by means of reconstructing certain historical philosophies - into a figure that creates difference and is relevant to the present, one that allows the articulation of the unanticipated events of alteration, without drawing from nothing or anticipating teleologically. Additionally supplemented by the absurd play "Meta-Pipton" the philosophical text is both complemented and interrupted by the drama, in order to interrupt it itself, so that something can become something new.
