It is not one lover - a model lover, a supra-individual one - like the male voice used by Roland Barthes in his book A Lover´s Discourse: Fragments (Fragments d´un Discours Amoureux, 1977) who uses modular components from the fields of literature, philosophy, and intellectual history; it is twelve artists - lovers - who speak in Annja Krautgasser´s video Fragments. They do not talk about love itself, they articulate the figures of love in the moment of the body´s gesture caught in action and not in contemplated response; it is the contemporary structures of the notion of "dating" that should reinvigorate a discourse - itself pursued by thousands of subjects - already of an extreme solitude from the outset.
