... All three forms GENERAL ANTAGONISM takes aims to craft spaces for alternative conversation, social study towards alternative epistemologies, a concerted effort to think the other world within our own. We do not believe simply that another world is possible, but rather that in our own discrete ways another world is inevitable and already here, we must simply tease it out from underneath the seemingly inevitable now-world that we live in.

Taking its name from an idea explored by Fred Moten and Stefano Harney (apart and together) it is a project which is indebted sincerely to both of them.

It is with the idea that reading is writing and writing is reading and that embedded within these two practices are the very operations by which we invest and craft our world that GA finds its revitalizing thrust. That somehow in the process (not the final product) of writing and its necessity of reading(s) that not only are new possibilities formed, but that the very intellectual-molecular structures of the inhabitants of these practices shift in one way or another. To utilize writing, the very thing by which ideas are spread for better or worse, and to contaminate it with reading to as to dismantle its authority, thereby rendering it a kind of fluvial space of inquiry.

We set down in our study if only because our spaces are undercommons, subterranean, subaltern, generally antagonistic. We will never call to order that which we wish to investigate, rather preferring what Felix Guattari would call the chaosmic spasm towards that which we cannot know. Study here being the very means by which we can understand better, and more sincerely, our relations with one another, our interdependence, our caring cohabitation, our communicable community, as the very means by which we exist.
