In the framework of Resonance, an exhibition of the Goethe-Institut New York curated by Rivet and work by Agency, Faivovich & Goldberg and weareQQ, Diedrich Diederichsen was invited to deliver a talk that would tackle some issues of object-oriented thinking within the arts, as well as considering the potential for resonance among entities relevant to contemporary practice (human, non-human, animate or inanimate).

Because of Hurricane Sandy, Diederichsen’s talk had to be cancelled, but this change of plans led to a conversation between Diederichsen and the curators, Rivet (Sarah Demeuse and Manuela Moscoso), about the topics he had planned to bring forward. What follows is a dialogue primarily based on Diederichsen’s original presentation. This booklet, produced with the swift collaboration of design studio Project Projects, will participate, in lieu of the talk, as an additional voice among the artworks on display at the Goethe-Institut Wyoming Building in New York City for the remainder of the exhibition.
