The Individualist Anarchist Discourse of Early Interwar Germany pt.1

Georg Grosz, Cafe Scene]

For our next reading, we will begin Constantin Parvulescu's “The Individualist Anarchist Discourse of Early Interwar Germany.” This text lands us at the intersection of anarchism and bohemianism in Weimar Berlin: the years between two catastrophic wars. It focuses on the journal “Der Einzige,” and its contributors who were progenitors of many of the ideas we have been discussing thus far in the reading group. For anyone critical of “organized community, revolutionary practices and the idea of mobilization,” and is enticed by an “invitation to disobedient reading, creation and active forgetting...a vision of communal living centered on antihumanism, singularity and individual revolt.” We are looking to learn from the stories of these lesser-known thinkers, whose ideas are still resonanting 100 years later.
