SCUM Manifesto is a digital book bringing texts and archives about the videotape of Carole Roussopoulos and Delphine Seyrig restored and available in full in the book. The videotape filmed in 1976 is a staged reading of extracts from Valerie Solanas’s SCUM Manifesto then out of print in French translation. Delphine Seyrig translates some passages to Carole Roussopoulos who types them in the machine. In the background, a television broadcasts live images of the TV news which let us hear the apocalyptic news. Like the book, the film is a pamphlet against society dominated by the “male” image and “virile” action.
This book edited by Julien Bézille, Hélène Fleckinger and Callisto Mc Nulty has benefited from ANR support under the Investment in the future program (ANR-10-LABX-80-01) and cultural support from Canton du Valais.
