The Invention of a People explores the residual relation between Heidegger's thought and Deleuze's novelty. Contextualising the problematic of a people-to-come within a larger political and philosophical context, Janae Sholtz casts Deleuze's project is cast as both an extension and radicalization of the Heideggerian themes of immanence, ontological difference and the transformative potential of art. Sholtz invents creative encounters which act as provocations from the outside, opening new lines of flight and previously unthought terrain. Ultimately she develops a diagrammatic image of a people-to-come that is constantly in flux and can answer the demands of the untimely future.
