Squaring the Liminal or Reproducing it: Charisma and Trickster

  • Agnes Horvath
Part of the Modernism and … book series (MAND)


The liminal is an endpoint, where things hang over nothingness, being kept apart from life, yet feeling it intensively. It is thus something that has no unity, suffering from this deprivation, having a weakness for forms, which cannot be expressed; yet it is possible to sense it, approach it and exploit it. Liminality can only be expressed through the zero, as only nothingness can express nothingness: it is positional, and can only become visible when something infiltrates it. In the following, I give an account of the liminal incommensurability when it first appeared, as an apprehensible object of knowledge in a peculiar underground setting.
