trinketization again (book note)

What we mean by trinketization is also an injunction: to contextualize objects and memes in social and global political significance and ramification; to theorize and interpret critically and endlessly, as if it mattered. No to mere taxonomy that substitutes for thinking; no to genealogies of already codified and congealed proper names; no to the rictus grin of erudite but learned stupidity – we are more stupid than that, we hold out for the transformation of everything, we want to offer a lyrical no to all texts of stultifying passivity – may a thousand flowers contend, may the pages burn, may words about things be incandescent… Fireworks.
