“Let’s indulge in sensual pleasures and shocking activities involving sex and drugs. Let’s lose self-control.” – Jo Swift
Georges Bataille, the French essayist, philosophical theorist and novelist, was called the ‘metaphysician of evil’.
He was obsessed with sex, death and degradation, He relished the power and potential of the obscene.
Having rejected traditional literature, he considered the ultimate aim of all intellectual, artistic, or religious activity should be the annihilation of the rational individual in a violent, transcendental act of coming together. The orgasm of abandonment.
