Guattari Reading Circle

Guattari Reading Circle is an open reading group focusing on impromptu studies of texts by the French institutional psychotherapist, philosopher and radical activist Félix Guattari. Established around the participation of the public, the reading circle is an itinerant function that responds to and involves the given site and particular group of its gathering – always organised around reading aloud and on the spot (without preparation).

Guattari Reading Circle is conceptualised and organised by visual artist Arendse Krabbe and visual artist, art critic and curator Mathias Kryger, and was founded in autumn 2014. It has travelled through multiple institutional contexts, investigating the relationship between the specific spaces, the dynamics of the given group and Félix Guattari’s writing. Guattari Reading Circle has previously been hosted by the following institutions and their given collectives, all situated in the greater Copenhagen area: Kunsthal Charlottenborg; The Mental Health Center Skt. Hans; The Zoological Collection, Copenhagen University; Bispebjerg Hospital; Medical Museion; Enghave Church; AsylFestival, Trampolinhouse.

LOCATION: The library in Vandflyverhangaren (Water airplane hangar?) at Margreteholmsvej 2. (by Refshalevej)

We invite You and the Deleuze network to partake in a reading of the text Transversalitywritten by Félix Guattari in 1964 – an early text about institutional structures in which he draws from his experiences working at the clinic La Borde south of Paris.

We read Transversality on the spot and together. As we work through the text together there is no need for preparation before the meeting. Please bring a print out or digital copy – the text begins at PDF-page 8 / book page 11.
After the reading we would be happy to talk about the experience of group reading and about forms of knowledge-production, the politics of sharing knowledge and about the project in general.

Guattari Reading Circle at Alt Cph Understanding accelerationism, slowly


We haven’t seen anything yet – Understanding accelerationism, slowly
Alt Cph 1112 – 13 September 2015
Sundholmsvej 46, Cph S

The Civilized Capitalist Machine – chapter 9 of part 3 of Anti-Oedipus – Capitalism and Schizophrenia written by Félix Guattari and Gilles Deleuze’s – ends like this:

‘But which is the revolutionary path? Is there one?—To withdraw from the world market, as Samir Amin advises Third World countries to do, in a curious revival of the fascist “economic solution”? Or might it be to go in the opposite direction? To go still further, that is, in the movement of the market, of decoding and deterritorialization? For perhaps the flows are not yet de territorialized enough, not decoded enough, from the viewpoint of a theory and a practice of a highly schizophrenic character. Not to withdraw from the process, but to go further, to “accelerate the process,” as Nietzsche put it: in this matter, the truth is that we haven’t seen anything yet.’

This quote has lead a number of thinkers to suggest an accelerationist position in the writing of Guattari and Deleuze who again share the attributed foundation of the –ism with Jean-François Lyotard, Benjamin Noys, Nick Land and others.

Does accelerationism propose the tools of capital’s dissolution within the present situation of hyper-semio-capitalism?

At alt_cph, Guattari Reading Cirle hosts three reading sessions regarding issues of capital and acceleration, trying to understand accelerationism, slowly.
