The important precondition for the Commune was the crystallization of a rapidly growing field of publication, manifold newspapers that stood for the most diverse oppositional positions, and the protagonists writing for them. This term is by no means intended to obscure the role of the nation-states, which still continue to have diverse impacts, but rather to describe the genealogical movement in the form of insurrection, in which aspects of the national revolt are conserved today, but which still goes beyond this.

On April 12th, before Courbet became a member of the Coun- cil of the Commune, the Council came to the decision to topple the column.

Courbet returned to painting, which he had given up for his political functions. Whereas constituent power correlates with the second and third concepts of the constitution, in the meaning used here it distances itself from the Constitution as abstract universal and greald foundation for the state. Against this backdrop of the fixation of art production to aes- thetic representation, in the early 20th century a continuous stream of artistic strategies emerged, which opposed this one-sided fixation due not only to Hegelian aesthetics.

The situation does raujig exclude coincidence, but tries to regain it. Not only the content, but also the location of this performance aimed at the everyday life of production.

We are necessarily on the same path as our enemies — most often pre- ceding them — but we must be there, without any confusion, as enemies.

With the molecules of my book, however, I would like to focus on specific lines, of which the singular speci- ficity and their more or less explicit conjunctions and similarities should become evident in the course of the text. For this philosophical and historiographical project of analyz- ing recolution problematizing the concatenation of revolutionary machines and art machines, a dis- continuity could be imagined, which persistently eludes every narrative of an origin.
