Hurlements en faveur de Sade / Howlings in favour of Sade (1952)

Hurlements en faveur de Sade / Howlings in favour of Sade (1952),2

Hurlements en faveur de Sade est le premier film (réalisé en juin 1952) de #Guy_Debord. Il dure 64 minutes. Il est composé de séquences d’écran blanc, durant lesquelles sont énoncées par quelques voix off des phrases provenant du Code civil ou de romans d’autres auteurs, dont la signification n’est immédiate que pour elles-mêmes, alternant avec des séquences à écran noir silencieuses. Au moment où la projection allait commencer, Guy Debord devait monter sur la scène pour prononcer quelques mots (...) (...)

#Guy_Debord : “Cette mauvaise réputation…” (1993)

La critique des critiques. Ce plaidoyer pro domo est destiné à ‘rétablir la vérité complète sur beaucoup de circonstances peu connues' de la conduite de l'auteur, circonstances qui ‘sont pourtant aussi très rarement citées'. Guy Debord recopie, ‘redresse' et commente les ‘propos des médiatiques', durant les années 1988 à 1992. On peut, avec J. Savigneau, souligner l'absence totale d'humour et qualifier de ‘décourageante' la lecture de ce florilège de critiques peu crédibles.

#Michel_Foucault : The Archaeology of Knowledge (1969-) [FR, ES, IT, EN, PT, AR, SR, TR, CZ, RU]

“The Archaeology of Knowledge (L'archéologie du savoir) is a methodological treatise promoting what the French philosopher Michel Foucault calls “archaeology” or the “archaeological method”, an analytical method he implicitly used in his previous works Madness and Civilization, The Birth of the Clinic, and The Order of Things. It is Foucault's only explicitly methodological work.

The premise of the book is that systems of thought and knowledge (“epistemes” or “discursive formations”) are governed by rules (beyond those of grammar and logic) which operate in the consciousness of individual subjects and define a system of conceptual possibilities that determines the boundaries of thought in a given domain and period.” (from Wikipedia)

#Thomas_Pynchon : Gravity's Rainbow (1973-) [EN, IT, HU]

A few months after the Germans' secret V-2 rocket bombs begin falling on London, British Intelligence discovers that a map of the city pinpointing the sexual conquests of one Lieutenant Tyrone Slothrop, U.S. Army, corresponds identically to a map showing V-2 impact sites. The implications of this discovery launch Slothrop on a wildly comic extravaganza.

“Gravity's Rainbow is Pynchon's most celebrated novel. An intricate and allusive fiction that combines and elaborates on many of the themes of his earlier work, including preterition, paranoia, racism, colonialism, conspiracy, synchronicity, and entropy, the novel has spawned a wealth of commentary and critical material, including reader's guides, books and scholarly articles, online concordances and discussions, and art works. Its artistic value is often compared to that of James Joyce's Ulysses. Some scholars have hailed it as the greatest American post-WW2 novel, and it has similarly been described as ‘literally an anthology of postmodernist themes and devices'.” (from Wikipedia) [#epub de l'édition anglaise]
