I’m excited to announce a new book in collaboration with Scarlet Imprint: https://scarletimprint.com/journal/anarchs-and-antichrists
It’s expected to be published in the forthcoming winter.
The question is how to use sorcery as a political strategy in a time of irreversible planetary change. An important step in this direction would be to advance a kind of sinister animism that focuses on materiality rather than the obsessive search for happiness that dominates modern society. Unlike what is commonly called Western esotericism, which is characterised by the will to personal well-being, sorcery is painful and is usually imposed on us by external forces that take possession of our bodies and minds. Only by internalising the strangeness that invades us and creating a new political imaginary that erases the boundaries between animal, plant and mineral can we sustain hope for revolution. We need a sorcerous practice that opens us up to the harsh intensity of upheaval.
