“Being Together Precedes Being” offers itself as a textbook for “The Kids Want Communism” project – a series of exhibitions, symposiums, conferences, screening programs, and publications around the world.

In this textbook, edited by Joshua Simon, communism does not merely describe an “us versus them” relation but also suggests that we are becoming the future. This trajectory of communism runs parallel to us at every single moment and its guiding principle is that being together precedes being.
