    Abstract

    Among the curators of major international contemporary art exhibitions over the last few years, Deleuze and Guattari have found a loyal following. From Documentas to Manifestas, these high-powered and well-resourced exhibitions have employed the terminology of rhizomes and plateaus. How can the genre of art exhibitions – with its necessity to move physical objects for a limited period of time to meet other works and similarly travelling audiences – live up to the expectations created? In which ways can and do such shows engage with the themes and imagery of the Anti-Oedipus – and where do the misunderstandings lie (calculated or otherwise)? What do they reveal about contemporary art, its modes of circulation and its engagement with themes and philosophical positions like Deleuze and Guattari’s in particular?
