Documents from the Archive of the International Necronautical Society
Tom McCarthy & Simon Critchley
On August 7, 1999, Tom McCarthy founded the International Necronautical Society (INS) with a public presentation of the “Founding Manifesto,” a touchstone that would inform the organization’s proceedings for years to come. Composed of official committee members and illicit “agents,” the INS harks back to early 20th-century avant-gardes, producing declarations, reports, public hearings, broadcasts, and research documents. It also orchestrates more covert media infiltrations, all governed by the objective, set out in the manifesto, of mapping, entering, and occupying the space of death through literature, philosophy, culture, and technology. The Mattering of Matter is a collection of INS documents produced between 1999 and 2010.
