 - The Situationist International (1957–1972)
A new perspective on Situationist International, with unreleased documents.
This publication provides an insight into one of the 20th century's most underrated (anti-)art movements. The rather shadowy existence led by the Situationists and their Lettrist predecessors in the annals of the post-war avant-garde, and the indeterminacy of their legacy are largely of their own making: their agenda of political radicalism and negativity included a strict refusal to co-operate with the "bourgeois" mass media and enter the wider intellectual and political debate.
Published on the occasion of the exhibitions at the Centraal Museum Utrecht (December 2006 - March 2007), and at the Museum Tinguely, Basel (April - August 2007).
Edited by Heinz Stahlhut, Juri Steiner, Stefan Zweifel.
Texts by Giorgio Agamben, Jean Beaudrillard, Hans-Magnus Enzensberger, Thomas Hirschhorn, Vincent Kaufmann, François Letaillieur, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Peter Sloterdijk, etc.

Published in collaboration with Centraal Museum, Utrecht, and Museum Tinguely, Basel.
