Might a realist art consist of new epistemic modules, new ways of exploring the eructation of the real? Amanda Beech’s ‘Sanity Assassin’, a film which explored the relationship between alienating urban architecture and the violence of language, was also notable in suggesting a visual rhetoric for the exploration of the real, though whether this is the correlationist ‘real’ of the psychoanalytic trauma, say, or the real real of SR remains to be seen.
