Plot[ edit ] The book follows the journey of an Anabaptist radical across Europe in the first half of the 16th century as he joins in various movements and uprisings that come as a result of the Protestant reformation. Interpretations and controversy[ edit ] Throughout Europe, several critics have read Q from a political point of view, [1] and maintain that the novel is an allegory of European society after the decline of the s and s protest movements. As in the 16th century, the Counter-Reformation repressed any alternative theological current or radical social movement, and the Peace of Augsburg sanctioned the partition of the continent among Catholic and Protestant powers, so the last twenty years of the 20th century were marked by a vengeful rebirth of conservative ideologies, and the International Monetary Fund -driven corporate globalization of the economy seemed to rout any resistance. But, this is just one of the many interpretations that have emerged following publication. According to other readers and critics, [2] Q is a thinly disguised autobiography of Luther Blissett as a subversive, identity-shifting collective phantom.

According to Marco Deseriis, the main purpose of the LBP was to create "a folk hero of the information society" whereby knowledge workers and immaterial workers could organize and recognize themselves.

A tradition. Revolutions and radical movements have always found and told their own myths. Drawing from the work of Italian Workerists, such as Antonio Negri , Paolo Virno , Maurizio Lazzarato and others, the activists of the LBP envisioned Blissett as the expression of the capacity of immaterial workers to produce forms of wealth that cannot be properly measured and attributed to an individual producer.

In this manifesto , the LBP claims that because in late capitalism any social activity can potentially generate value, the culture and media industries should guarantee a basic income to every citizen detached from individual productivity: The industry of the integrated spectacle and immaterial command owes me money. I will not come to terms with it until I will not have what is owed to me.

For all the times I appeared on TV, films, and on the radio as a casual passersby or as an element of the landscape, and my image has not been compensated.

I understand it may be difficult to calculate how much they owe me as an individual. But this is not necessary at all, because I am Luther Blissett, the multiple and the multiplex.

And what the industry of the integrated spectacle owes me, it is owed to the many that I am, and is owed to me because I am many.

From this viewpoint, we can agree on a generalized compensation. You will not have peace until I will not have the money! Harry Kipper , a British conceptual artist , disappears at the Italo-Slovenian border while touring Europe on a mountain bike, allegedly with the purpose of tracing the word ART on the map of the continent. The victim of the prank is a famous missing-persons prime-time show on the Italian state television. They send out a TV crew to look for a person that never existed.

The hoax goes on until "Luther Blissett" claims responsibility for it. In September , a Bolognese community radio began broadcasting Radio Blissett, a late-night show featuring a variable number of Luther Blissetts who "patrolled" the city on foot and called the studio from local phone booths. In the Spring , the experiment was duplicated in Rome, where the wider extension of the city required the simultaneous use of car patrols and cell phones.

A few dozen participating to the Roman Radio Blissett boarded a night tram at different consecutive stops. A rave party took place on the vehicle until the police decided to stop it. Requested to disembark and identify themselves, the ravers refused to identify themselves other than with the multiple-use name.

A riot ensued in which the police fired three shots in the air. The radio program caused a media sensation. Loota is a female chimpanzee whose paintings are to be exhibited at the Venice Biennale of Contemporary Arts. In the context of the hoax, Loota is described as a former victim of sadistic experiments in a pharmaceutical lab. The ape was then saved by the Animal Liberation Front , and later became a talented artist.

Some newspapers announced the event. However, Loota did not exist. An article in the " Workshop For A Non-Linear Architecture " journal Viscosity stating that the K Foundation had announced a year moratorium on "all further activity" following their burning of a million pounds in cash on the Isle of Jura is credited to Luther Blissett.

In , Italian art magazines such as Tema Celeste and Flesh Art begin reporting about the activities of Darko Maver , a hitherto unknown radical Serbian performance artist who has been disseminating hyper-realistic replicas of dismembered bodies in public spaces and hotel rooms across the former Yugoslavia. The magazines and a web site called "Free Art Campaign" report that the artist has been arrested by the Serbian authorities for his performances, which are meant to offer a scathing meditation on the hyperreality and media representation of the Yugoslav Wars.

In March , after alternative art spaces such as Kapelica Gallery in Ljubljana , Forte Prenestino in Rome , and major art venues such as the Venice Biennale have dedicated retrospectives and paid tribute to the artist, the Luther Blissett Project, along with the newborn net art collective A month before the appearance on the bookshelves of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows , an email [15] was sent to the Full Disclosure mailing list.

In the e-mail, a self-declared group of Catholic hackers purportedly gave away the ending of the book, declaring they violated the computer systems of Bloomsbury exclusive publisher of the Harry Potter books to obtain it. The news escalated from niche IT security mailing lists to mainstream media outlets, and in about 48 hours, it was run by CNN , BBC , Reuters , and over blogs declared in the claim.

Three days after, Luther Blissett claimed responsibility for the hoax in a public email [16] in which he described how easily the media could be manipulated and how this could be used for psyops purposes. The revelation [17] was ignored by most media outlets, with the notable exception of Noticiasdot, which published an interview [18] with Luther Blissett.

Milan in the s, among other teams. It is particularly popular among Italian subcultural activists and artists, possibly because of the Milan connection. The reasons the group chose the name remain unclear to mainstream journalists e. Milan , the Watford player they were impressed with was in fact John Barnes and they mistakenly bid for Blissett being one of the two black strikers at the club.

If this is the case the group may have taken the name as a reference to a red herring. Since the beginning of the project, the real Blissett has been aware of the group taking his name. During the whole show, Blissett intelligently joked and quipped about his own alleged involvement in the Luther Blissett Project. At the end of the show, hosts and guests all said in unison: "I am Luther Blissett!
