What is Situationism?: A Reader
AK Press, 1996 - Arts, European - 203 pages
This anthology gathers together a broad range of critical material about the Situationist International. The texts run sequentially according to date of original publication, thereby providing an overview of the way in which situationism has been historicized in the Anglo-American world. A wealth of historical and interpretative information is provided by the various contributors. This plurality of voices ranges from underground legends to art theorists, ultra-leftists to professional academics, whose opinions blend and clash to provide a book that is far more vibrant than a conventional monograph.
