The Inoperative Community
by Nancy, Jean-Luc (1991)
In his sense, Bataille is without doubt the one who experienced first, or most acutely the modern experience of community as neither a work to be produced, nor a lost communion, but rather as space Itself, and the spacing of the experience of the outside, of the outside-of-self. (p.19)
