The Cultural Logic of Insurrection:Essays on Tiqqun and The Invisible Committee

More details


£6.00

Tiqqun and The Invisible Committee, while clearly informed by academic discourses (such as traditional metaphysics, theories of sovereignty, the study of biopolitics and disciplinary practices, etc), are staunchly defiant of the academys monopoly over political thought. They are at once an appropriation, recontextualization, and a liberation of certain theoretical concepts from the tautological trap of academia and their subsequent projection into the world. In this way, Tiqqun and The Invisible Committee represent a critical synthesis of theoretical spaces as disparate and diverse as anarchist thought, Italian autonomist-Marxism from the 1970s, French ultragauche communism, the squatters movement in Europe in the 1980s, and the Situationist International. These essays are a dialogue with Tiqqun's logic and their successes (and failures) as a project.
