Vale, Jean Baudrillard
We will miss the earthly presence of Jean Baudrillard, whose death after a long illness has been reported.
From our perspective Baudrillard was one of the three most pertinent French theorists since Guy Dubord for informing our orientation toward the contemporary (the others being Michele de Certeau and Jean-Francois Lyotard). Baudrillard was a fearless theorist who boldy went where many would fear to tread.
Vale, Jean Baudrillard. We look forward to you coming around.
