Ten years since its inception L’Internationale Online is delighted to announce the launch of its new research and publishing platform. Under the editorship of Nick Aikens and the editorial board, and developed by Anja Groten, Joel Galvez and Karl Moubarak, the platform marks a new chapter for L’Internationale Online and the confederation more broadly. The platform is conceived as the common space of L’Internationale and its constituents, regularly commissioning and publishing diverse content that informs, reflects on, and is in dialogue with, the network’s activities. It is also the space for the network to respond to urgent political and cultural debates. It is hosted by HDK-Valand, one of the three educational partners in L’Internationale.

The new platform includes material published since 2014, bringing together long reads, opinion pieces, conversations and artists contributions in one Contributions section, all available in e-reader and PDF formats. The Publications section includes over 40 books, available for download. To mark the launch of the new platform a number of publications including Climate. Our Right to Breathe (2022), The Constituent Museum (2018) and The Glossary of Common Knowledge, vols I and II (2018 and 2022) are now available to download in full. The Activities section includes details of programmes taking place as part of the Museum of the Commons, the current four year project of the network, as well as other collaborations. The About section introduces the network and tells its story in multiple languages.

The platform has been developed entirely with open source software. It uses the font Authentic Sans Pro developed by Authentic, newly extended here to include 72 new glyphs for the 16 languages spoken in the confederation. Working with DEI consultants the platform implements a number of ecological and accessibility considerations including reducing the load size of L’Internationale Online by 90% and minimizing code and style sheets, reducing bandwidth to give faster load times in areas with weak internet. You can read more on L’Internationale’s Ecology and Accessibility page.

The platform launches with contributions across music, poetry, science fiction and artists contributions. As part of the ongoing strand “Towards Collective Study in Times of Emergency” read “Diary of a Crossing” a two part narrative recounting a thirty-two hour journey from Amsterdam to Ramallah in the Occupied West Bank. Listen to the captivating live recording of Jokkoo with Miramizu, Rasheed Jalloul and Sabine Salamé performing on the opening night of Song for Many Movements: Scenes of Creative Collection at MACBA. In “We Have Been here Forever. Palestinian Poets Write Back” translator and researcher Rana Issa selects and introduces a number of Palestinian poets that take readers from the context of nakba to those writing amidst the relentless violence in Gaza today. The editorial introducing this strand is now translated in Spanish, TurkishSlovenian and Arabic.

Elsewhere read Vandana Singh’s acclaimed science fiction short story Indra’s Web which is published as part of the strand “And the Earth along … tales about the making, remaking and unmaking of the world” initiated by ZRC SAZU Ljubljana, and a commissioned mixtape “Let’s Funk Up All Genders” by Materia Hache / Others to the Front, part of the thread “The Sonic Commons”. Lastly, to open the publishing thread “Recette, Reset. Recipes in and beyond the institution” writer Mary Fawzy’s article “Discomfort at Dinner: The role of food work in challenging empire”, reflects on the politics of food and food residencies within art worlds.

Look out for contributions by Françoise Vergès, Jelena Vesić, Subversive Film, Ariella Aïsha Azoulay, Åsa Sonjasdotter and many more in the near future.
