The notion of schizoanalysis is Deleuze and Guattari's fusion of psychoanalytic-inspired theories of the self, the libido and hope with Marx-inspired theories of the economic climate, background and society. Schizoanalysis holds that art's functionality is either political and aesthetic - it alterations conception. If one can't switch conception, then, one can't switch something politically. the reason is, Deleuze and Guattari continuously insist that artists function on the point of the true (not the imaginary or the symbolic). finally, they argue, there is not any valuable contrast to be made among aesthetics and politics. they're easily facets of a similar coin, either desirous about the formation and transformation of social and cultural norms.

It was ‘too grand’, and he felt ‘castrated’ there because the immaculate splendour of the new space inhibited him from wiping brushes on the wall, letting paint drip and amassing the various documents and tools he liked to have scattered around on the floor (Peppiatt 2008: 311–12).

Guattari argues that machinic surplus-value is double sided, being used both to further our enslavement but also to provide a surplus to capital itself. This is a surplus to the representational and subjectivizing mechanisms of capital, a surplus of sensation (the surplus of the surplus, we might say) that defines the aesthetic paradigm, and gives art its power. As he writes: precisely because it intervenes on the most functional levels – sensorial, affective and practical – the capitalist machinic enslavement is liable to reverse its effects, and to lead to a new type of machinic surplus-value accurately described by Marx (expansion of alternatives for the human race, constant renewal of the horizon of desires and creativity) (1996: 220).
