PALOMARES BOMB GRRLS

“They were marching like fugitives around the city. They were hiding yet they
didn’t know what was after them. They were in murky depths in a city that
now spread out like a swamp. L-Bomb would sometimes close her right eye
to see more clearly by bringing an uncoupled luxuriance to her visioning. They
threaded themselves in & out of streets, roads, parks, broadways, markets,
shopping malls, squares without ever being individual entities. They suffered
the abundance of a kind of inexhaustible intermediate state. They were like
animals of oblivion, & this was a literal fact too as all ancestors end up with
apes & their ancestors, ultimately the stars. They were like creatures rooting
around, anyone watching would assume there was some sort of fickleness
in play as they would suddenly swing round & make off in a completely
new direction to the one they had been following, as if thoughts were being
freshly corrupted & their despair a butterfly.”

PALOMARES BOMB GRRLS marks the return of the legendary Neo-Attack! author JOHNNY PULP. Continue reading “PALOMARES BOMB GRRLS”

EXPERIMENTAL KNOWLEDGE AS SUBVERSIVE FORCE

It was never a question of WHEN WILL THE REVOLUTION BEGIN? A revolution has been in progress for over two hundred years. The question is HOW HAS THIS REVOLUTION CONTINUED TO BE ABDUCTED, BEHIND THE SPECTACLE OF A FEW MOMENTARY “ERUPTIONS” – events left to yellow on the pages of history books? Decade after decade of pornographic commodification has transformed the “historical aura” of transgression & emancipation into a new form of impoverished labour. This production of self-alienation has entered a vicious circle which masquerades as the predominant “revolutionary thought” of today: dissociated to such a degree that it is capable not only of experiencing its own destruction as an aesthetic pleasure of the first order (Benjamin), but that it is capable of doing so repeatedly, ad infinitum.

MANUFACTURING DISSENT

Public forum with Vanessa Place, Stewart Home, Louis Armand, Magdaléna Platzová, Andrew Hodgson, Teréza Stejskalová, Jan Běliček, Benjamin Tallis, 25 May 2018, Prague

Benjamin Tallis: Today we’re discussing the manufacture of dissent & the future of resistance, marking the fiftieth anniversary of the Paris student uprising & the Prague Spring. I’d like to begin by quoting Antonin Artaud, who said “the duty of the poet is not to cowardly shut himself away in a text, a book, a magazine from which he will never emerge, but on the contrary to emerge, to go outside, to shake, to attack the mind of the public, if not what use is he?” This is a question many of us pose to ourselves: how do we actually make a critical impact on the world? But what might we mean “to emerge,” “to go outside,” are we not always already part of this “outside” to which we seek to go? Are we not already “emerged”? How do we manage to separate ourselves, to actually hide ourselves away, & not partake in the world? These are questions we should bear in mind. How can we “attack the mind of the public” when we are also that public? But moreover, as Louis Armand has written, when we’re in a situation of the appropriation & normalisation of dissent, rampant commodification, the criminalization of protest & the bold resurgence of neo-fascism, what form can active resistance take? This is one of our key questions: how do we go beyond resistance? And how do we stomach the idea of proscribing a “positive vision” for how people should live, given what we’ve learned from the twentieth century? Continue reading “MANUFACTURING DISSENT”

2 OCTOBER 1968

A social movement comprised by professors, housewives, workers, students, professionals, in other words the entire crossection of civil society, with the support of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Instituto Politécnico Nacional, Colegio de México, Escuela de Agricultura de Chapingo, Universidad Iberoamericana, La Salle, Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla, & under the direction of the CNH (National Council of Strike). Their list of demands included, among others, the release of political prisoners & the end of autoritarism.

Sexual deviance is a condition, such as exhibitionism or masochism, in which sexual gratification is derived from activities or fantasies generally regarded as atypical. Such a condition when it causes distress or impaired functioning in the individual or actual or potential harm to others is called a paraphilic disorder. Repression was sometimes described as the effacement or partial erasure of memories, which are overwritten by others. A membrane cleansed by reiterated successions. A convulsive palimpsest representing the End of History. The rules were simple, if you complied, they only raped you. Continue reading “YEAR ZERO”
