First session: L'insurrection qui vient/The Coming Insurrection.

On tuesday, october 25 we will start by discussing The Coming Insurrection, or L'insurrection Qui Vient, by the Invisible Committee. We'll start by reading the introduction and the First, Second and Third Circle. We will probably spend two more sessions with this text, which functioned as a key starting point for our hosts, the artists of Sociaal Experiment.

The entire text in English translation can be found here. This page also includes a link to the full original French text in .pdf.

Some related sources in Dutch can be found on the website of the Flemish journal nY. Here is Joost de Bloois translation of Comment Faire, a programmatic text first published in Tiqqun 2. De schaduw van de menigte is the title of De Bloois' essay on the radical poetics of Tiqqun and the Invisible Committee. Finally, there is a critique of this position by Gijsbert Pols and a reply by De Bloois, followed by a very lively exchange between the two authors.
