Critical Dictionary: In homage to G. Bataille at Gagosian Paris

“A dictionary should begin from the point when it is no longer concerned with the meaning but only with the use of words. Thus “formless” is not only an adjective with a certain meaning, but a term serving to deprecate, implying the general demand that everything should have a form.”
—Georges Bataille, 1929
