reading from baedan 2
if people are into it, then we might read something from baedan 3 for the following week.
we’re starting one of our most ambitious readings ever, namely the influential anti-oedipus, by deleuze and guattari.
full text is here.
we will start with the introduction and first chapter (so linear!), so through page 8 (the chapters are short).
and we hope to have a few of the interesting people who have been intrigued and influenced by this text come and talk to us about it, over the course of reading the book. so, stay tuned.
ok – we’re going with Camatte (providing silly people the opportunity to intentionally mispronounce the french, apparently).
while the most obvious articles for modern anarchists are the wandering of humanity and against domestication–both available at theanarchistlibrary.org– in the interest of the conversations about celebrity and art in our last meeting, i’m suggesting
beaubourg: future cancer as the reading for this week.
there was a suggestion by stephanie that we read the interview of godfrey reggio interview from unciv (out of Green Anarchy magazine). so here it is!
from wikipedia: Reggio is most known for his Qatsi trilogy, which includes the films Koyaanisqatsi (life out of balance), Powaqqatsi (life in transformation), and Naqoyqatsi (life as war). All of the film titles are taken from the Hopi language. In 1995 he directed the short feature entitled Evidence that featured, like the Qatsi Trilogy, a soundtrack composed by his friend Philip Glass. Also, he has directed a documentary Anima Mundi. Reggio spent fourteen years in fasting, times of silence, and prayer, training to be a monk within the Congregation of Christian Brothers, a Roman Catholic pontifical order, before abandoning that path and making the films.
