The image is from Masson after Bataille. It was posted tentatively, as tentatively as one posts a rendering of a headless man, and begs further inquiry where the recent ‘A commune with a leader?’ post was my inspiration. Bataille’s notion of sacrifice – of which Acephale is his most singular figuration – might upset a Marxist-socialist pragmatics, but is simply fascinating, maddening, passionate.

“For the bourgeoisie, the communist workers are as ugly and dirty as the sexual, hairy, lower parts of the body. Sooner or later the result will be bloody eruption in the course of which the sexless noble heads of the bourgeoisie will be chopped off.”

G.B.
