“If Western philosophy saw writing as a usurper of the voice, the drug that is not a medicine similarly scrambles transparency and presence. Through the disruption of Self and self-present orders, these are artists and writers who have worked towards a poetics of echoes and spasms that appears between drugs, writing and visual production.”

Lars Bang Larsen is a writer and a curator at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm. His field of research includes the aesthetic of the psychedelic, the occult, and sci-fi.
