This is Not a Program

by: Tiqqun

Publisher: Semiotext(e) (2011)


Using the praxis of the radical Italian movement of '77 to weave a critique of activism's indulgence in false binaries and single issue politics, TINAP sometimes reads like prose, though in my mind it doesn't like up to the hype currently surrounding the project and has a tendency to succumb to its own criticisms of oversimplification, they do a great job synthesizing an analysis of radical participation and its boundaries in a captivating and lyrical manner.
