Delusions of Reference: In Defense of Art (Part 2)
A talk by Sarah Rifky

Ideas grow; they become delusions, of reference. They unravel to the point where…everything makes sense, and everything has a spirit. In the disorders of thought when language fails to produce meaning, convictions rise to define psychosis. They say: the victim of language is “spoken” by it. But what if this language is art? This essay-lecture probes this experience of making sense.

Sarah Rifky is a writer and curator based in Cairo, Egypt. She is co-director of Beirut.
