Revisiting the Situationists

January 29, 2012

I’ve been working on re-working Guy Debord’s 1973 film version of The Society of the Spectacle, (more to come)

And for some additional fun, I’ve put together several texts about the Situationists, as well as some other peripheral texts about May 68 and the Lettrists that you might enjoy! I know I will. Thanks to aaaaarg for most these great finds!
