refuses to disappear

For the body cannot be easily contained by the consumption imperative. It discovers its own sexual and political being and overflows autonomously in many other directions as well. Or, as in the case of the state policies of economic and cultural austerity that have increasingly been imposed upon a recalcitrant underlying population, the body refuses to disappear as a subject.

– Stanley Aronwitz, foreward Martin, Randy. 1990. Performance as a Political Act. New York: Bergin and Garvey Publishers. p.viii
