This course will provide an in-depth study of an artist/writer whose work embodies a particular intersection between anarchist theory and occultism. The questions we will engage in the term include: How does the artist's craft shape the way in which Grant Morrison practices and envisions anarchism and occultism? More particularly, how does his comic book, The Invisibles, constitute a venture into the dense thicket that is anarchism and occultism? No previous experience with anarchism, occultism, or comic books is needed or even desired for this course! Plus all of these sources will be available for free to download.
