French Commune-ism Discussion Supplementary Readings

Especially with these ideas it can be very helpful to have a more thorough preliminary reading of texts which have influenced the Invisible Committee / TIQQUN / the Imaginary Party  and other things they’ve written. Introduction to Civil War is coming out in a few weeks, so maybe it’s a bit silly to have this on the list, but since it came out before Call or The Coming Insurrection it should hopefully offer some further insight into and give a more rounded understanding of the ideas.  Some other good places to focus on as a start would be: Foucault’s History of Sexuality volume 1: the Introduction, The Coming Community (of which the title of TCI references) and Other texts by Giorgio Agamben.

If people have other suggestions please share them. Texts that specifically deal theoretically with communization would be helpful.  The first issue of Endnotes is a good place to start for a general understanding of the idea and history, but this isn’t exactly the same place that the Invisible Committee is coming from.

Supplementary Readings:

-The Coming Insurrection by The Invisible Committee (book)

-Introduction to Civil War by TIQQUN (book)

-Invisible Politics: An Introduction to Contemporary Communization by John Cunningham

-Human Strike After Human Strike by Johann Kaspar (from Occupied London #4)

-Bring Out Your Dead by the Endnotes Collective

No problem. Even if you can’t read these all during this month they’re worth reading regardless.
