5. Postcollage

Collage and montage acquired force through the collision of distinct orders and the generation of tension across seams of difference. Previously stable subjectivities were fragmented. But today mobile subjectivities can be put into play both with and against existing spatial orders. The disjunctive play of difference has lost the power to shock. Fluid models of exchange, differential unities and free floating intensities replace the critical models of recuperating difference through ever escalating fragmentation.
