Comment faire un bloc functions as the transcript of a group press conference. Five participants speak in a free-for-all manner, with strange accents, interrupting, correcting, complementing, contradicting each other, creating diversions, red herrings, and unexpectedly opening up gaps. Eventually, they still somehow manage to establish the discourse – though broken up, multiple, contradictory – of an intense political adventure. Its tenets, however, as well as its motivations, practical modalities, executions and ends, are only broached upon with a form of paranoid circumspection that reaches the very core of language.
