Equipments of power: Reblog> Deleuze, Guattari, Foucault and Fourquet’s discussions of ‘Les équipements du pouvoir’, by @

Stuart Elden has blogged about Keith Harris‘ (no, not that one) work on excavating and translating some of the missing bits of the conversation published (in part) as Les équipements du pouvoir.

Stuart offers some interesting context and links to Harris’ excellent work – seems like an interesting piece for geographers, not least in relation to cities…

Deleuze, Guattari, Foucault and Fourquet’s discussions of ‘Les équipements du pouvoir’

scan0001Keith Harris has been saying a bit about Deleuze, Guattari, Foucault and Fourquet’s discussions of ‘Les équipements du pouvoir’. He first shared his reading notes on Guattari’s contributions to a discussion with Foucault and Fourquet; and has followed up today with a clarification on the initial publication details.

Keith links to my list of Foucault’s collaborative projects, which I think illustrates just how important this model of working was for him. The pieces in question were first published in Généalogie du capital: 1 Les équipements du pouvoir: villes, territoires et équipements collectifs, Recherches, No 13, December 1973; which was then reissued as François Fourquet and Lion Murard, Les équipements du pouvoir, Paris: Union Générales d’Éditions 10/18, 1976. The Recherches issue isn’t that easy to find today, but the 10/18 book is fairly widely available.
