The GIP was a radical activist group, extant between 1970 and 1973, in which Michel Foucault was heavily involved. It aimed to facilitate the circulation of information about living conditions in French prisons and, over time, it catalyzed several revolts and instigated minor reforms. In Foucaults words, the GIP sought to identify what was intolerable about the prison system and then to produce an active intolerance of that same intolerable reality.

To do this, the GIP gave prisoners the floor, so as to hear from prisoners themselves what to resist and how. The essays collected here explore the GIPs resources both for Foucault studies and for prison activism today.
