Taking a break from Klossowski next week to revisit the writing of our erstwhile attendee Alejandro de Acosta. From his collection of essays The Impossible, Patience (so very worth reading in its entirety), we’re gonna look at “To Acid-Words”. The page count on this one might seem excessive but, before ya balk, note that the layout makes each page more like a half page. Til Tuesday!
More of The Baphomet next week. This time, it’s chapters III – V (pp. 61-91). Towards, towards new vistas of infinite & empty possibles!
Pressing forward with Klossowski’s The Baphomet. This time we’ll discuss Chapters I & II (pp. 39-59). Stay fierce.
Next week, we will dip our toes into the sordid drip of Pierre Klossowski’s The Baphomet before deciding whether to complete it in weeks to come. Peruse the introductions if you like, but our discussion will center around the novel’s Prologue, which runs from pp. 5-37. As always, page numbers refer to those printed in the text, not the numbering of the digital file. Had a blast playing surrealist games with you all. Until next time… anon!
Tomorrow night we’re going to forego a reading and instead play some surrealist games, drawing from Alaistair Brotchie’s A Book of Surrealist Games. We’ll have a few selected that seem especially conducive to a group like ours and will provide the necessary supplies, but feel free to look through the text and pick out any that interest you, as well as bring any art supplies or other materials you think might enhance the play. See you soon!
