CCC Summer Book It Program

We have already ventured a bit far into summer, and are perhaps bit late in announcing this, but we are pleased to announce the start of this summer’s Book It program at the CCC / Cream City Collectives (732 E Clarke St.)

In order to participate, pick up a reading log from the CCC, log or attempt to log around 100 hours or reading from now until the end of the summer, and then attend a free pizza party (TBA). You can read whatever you want, though extra hours will be awarded for reading suggested readings and completing accompanying quizzes.

It’s that easy!

Suggested readings:

Letters of Insurgents by Sophia Nochalo and Yarostan Vochek

Discipline and Punish by Michel Foucault

My Gender Workbook by Kate Bornstein

Labrynths by Jorge Luis Borges

Introduction to Civil War by Tiqqun

Species Being by Frere Dupont

The Coming Community by Giorgio Agamben

Possibility of an Island by Michel Houellebecq

Valencia by Micheal Tea

Caliban and the Witch by Silvia Federici

We Are an Image From the Future by Various

The ScrewBall Asses by Guy Hocquenghem

Fox Fire by Joyce Carol Oats

The Unseen by Nanni Balestrini

+5 hours per passing completion of quiz (available at the CCC)
+5 hours for finishing one of the suggested books

Most of these books can be found in this distro and the rest should be available from the public library.


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
