A Love of UIQ

Félix Guattari | Translated by Silvia Maglioni and Graeme Thomson | Univocal | March 4, 2016

Throughout a large part of the 1980s, Felix Guattari, more known for his collaborations with Gilles Deleuze and his experimental and groundbreaking practices in psychotherapy, decides to shift his experimental work into a different medium of artistic and creative thought practice: the world of science fiction. Part self-analysis, part cinematic expression of his theoretical work, Guattari’s screenplay merges his theoretical concepts with his passion for comic books, free radio movements, and his love of film. So begins Guattari’s journey to write a screenplay wherein a group of squatters make contact with a superior intelligence coming from the infinitely small – The Universe of the Infra-quark (UIQ).

Félix Guattari (1930–1992) was a French psychoanalyst, activist-intellectual, and philosopher known widely for his collaborations with Gilles Deleuze and Antonio Negri.

Silvia Maglioni and Graeme Thomson are filmmakers and artists based in Paris.


"That Guattari chose the genre of science fiction should be of no surprise. Both the genre, and his philosophy, imagine a world untethered from current realities. The film explores both the promise, and danger, of new forms of subjectivity." --Critical Theory
