(en) Poland, rozbrat: About the new TIKN publishing series Trojka Brotherhood [machine translation]

Date Mon, 18 Sep 2017 09:49:34 +0300

The word "tikkun" in kabbalistic tradition means repair - repair the world. And the world repaired, as the kabbalists describe it, resembles the world of an anarchist dream very well: all power goes out, the law is devoid of any content. ---- Repair requires not so much the destruction of evil as the search for and protection of what in this world can save. Kabbalists talk about the sparkles of the divine light that are already here, only to find them and free them. Gilles Deleuze will write about a "community of explorers" filled with "faith, but rather confidence - not faith in another world, but trust in this world." Repair can only be done inside this world and only with our hands. ---- Faith in the world has nothing to do with incipient satisfaction. In 2000, the French collector Tiqqun pointed out that the only way out of the night that we are thinking today is to abandon the fortress of identity, discovering that everything we are is ultimately not ours, foreign, temporarily used. Instead of attaching to the spectacle of Polishness, Europeanness, Fighting Poland or the career of a senior manager - we need the courage to go, wander, migrate. What connects us with others is the common experience of beings who are surprised by themselves.

In the journey towards communion with others, we can support books that let you see something unfamiliar, think differently than before. For the Tiqqun group, one such book was the Community, which is coming to Giorgio Agamben. In 2001, eleven years after the publication of this book, Agamben added a section titled "Tiqqun de la noche". This is a sign of sympathy for the French collectivist, but the nighttime tikkun is also a practice of reading the holy Shavuot holy night by texts that help to fix the world.

In Yiddish, the language of the Jews of Eastern Europe, the word "tikkun" was "tikn". It is no coincidence that at the beginning of the twentieth century in our part of the world anarchism has gained a particularly strong response among the Jews. Michel Löwy argued that liberal ideals link with the tikn concept of a particular relationship - the affinity of choice.

The "Tikn" series is created in cooperation with the Publishing House of the Trojka Brotherhood. We intend to publish short texts whose authors and authors do not always declare themselves "anarchists", yet they have an affinity with the anarchist ideal. We want these texts to become widely available, we want to free them from academic gravity and bring them back into widespread use. We believe that these small and cheap booklets that you can easily carry with you will help repair the world.
