Invitation[edit]

Dears and darlings, too dear to market, would you like to un-mark(et) – step aside in mountains and valleys – this Summer and take care of the world?

@natacha and User:Hellekin @how are inviting you to join them in Osserain for a day or a month, at your convenience between July 15 and August 15 in order to dephase our confided diffractions following our collective writing proposal around THX. We sincerely hope you will be here in a resistant and festive atmosphere, rural and maquisarde, collective and benevolent. This invitation is given to people with whom we shared our intensities, our moments, our energies, in the continuity of our research and the discontinuity of our encounters: like for previous proposals, a number among you may have crossed paths, but rarely met and we wish to put in relation people who make our hearts beat. Children and friends are welcome. Do not hesitate to contact us if the proposed dates are not convenient for you so we can arrange modalities of presence or remote collaboration.

TransHack ·X·sist·nce was fulfilling a desire to pursue in writing the work started with 3TS that invited to diffractive readings of philosophers through the prism of singular technologies. It was about confronting the detached and overarching discourse of philosophy, notably the feminist and influences critical to techno-science, to paradoxically deincarnated and metamorphic practices of hackers. Writing allows to deepen an exploration of the relations between resisting and diverging bodies to technological hybridization, of a transversal and transgressive appropriation of technical production. The hybrid approach to mix concepts hardly known to hackers with poorly understood practices of the critiques of technology meant to brings to hackers and philosophers proper tools to rethink our relation to technique, and the delegation (dissolution) of its creation to corporations, as well as the alienation of the bodies to their golems. Following the publication of the 3TS card game, we had reiterated the invitation on new methodological basis which resulted in the desire to pursue with speculative narration.

With this new iteration, we want to provoke a jolt following the closure of #engagement:prendre-soin and the opening of a new phase of intervention of the Third TechnoScape in our collective practices of resistance. In a pertinent and acute observation, @natacha invites us to take a breath and go beyond the scathing tensions of fasco-sanitary (or politico-eugenism) re-constriction and recognize the materiality of resistances and opening the possibilities of their durable and vivid transmissions.

Thank you for considering our point of departure: [1]

Outcome[edit]

Despite the harsh global conditions and travel restrictions imposed on people across the world during this period, about 15 people responded to the invitation, all women. Together they produced the texts readable at Prendre Soin. Since most contributors were native French speakers, only a few texts were translated into English:
