The body and its living cells remain privileged targets of the double process of fracturing and fissuring evoked in the preceding chapters. The contemporary forms of brutalism do not mislead, at least, if by this term we understand the twofold movement of demolition and devitalization that is charged with enabling that which exists to be refashioned. With the process of dematerialization underway, the triumph of the image and the emergence of a nanoworld carried by all kinds of instrumented practices are hardly enough to erase matter. On the contrary, these processes have only highlighted its polemical status. This chapter discusses two forms of “negative communities”: that of captives and that of fugitives. These communities are the result of ongoing processes of fracturing, whose impasses they reproduce. The impossibility that all power encounters in transcending bodily limits is examined.
