The Leiris' Tauromachy as Embodied by Us
Languages of publication
A commentary to the taurological works by Leiris, the art of tauromachy and the eroticism patterned on it, which resigns from the fulfilment of the orgasm for the sake of a 'feminine' model - aesthetisation, theatralisation, delay. The character which Michel Leiris ascribed to the corrida is the same which the theoreticians of postmodernism refer to social relations dominating in present-day culture. The most important moment in life and in the arena is the one when the toreador and the beast, I and the Other, pass without touching each other.
