Georges Perec
Especes d’espaces (Species Of Spaces)


At first glance the theme of this book is a naive cataloguing of the spaces inhabited by us. But Georges Perec (1936-1982), a virtuoso and master of literary style, appears in it more as a cunning philosopher than as a curious sociologist and also as a puzzling anthropologist always changing the angles and perspectives, disturbing perception, rethinking and remodeling the spaces. This text fits the global strategy of transformation along with such a major works as Foucault’s «The Words And The Things», Baudrillard’s «The System Of Objects» and Guy Debord’s «The Society Of Spectacle».
