It does not strike me that the event is able to remain 'intact' through an archiver. So the question is: What remnants are we left with when we are confronted by texts that show a 'fidelty' to the event?  I speak here of 'fidelty' with reference with Badiou.  Badiou admits that he is attempting to showing fidelis to May68, but wonders whether the event has, in a sense, closed, since it lacks a name, it is still refered to after all as the event of MAY68. I am not sure. One would hope that one is able to catch a glimpse of the remnant, a glimpse of the remainder, and perhaps this is what we see in the works of Deleuze, Guattari, Ranciere, Badiou. It seems that in Badiou's work it is precisely the subject that is the remnant of the event and this seems to work with what I have said about catching a glimpse, but what then? This is my problem, as I am sure it is for others.  This could however explain the seductive quality of certain works but also objects and people...the glimpse of the remnant.
