Room 420 The Society of Spectacle

Room?s details

The network of artists and activists calling themselves the “Situationist International” developed a radical critique of art and analysis of urban space and the culture of the spectacle. The culmination of their critique is the abandonment of conventional artistic practice and the development of political activism as the absolute conclusion of the avant-garde. It brought with it a lexicon and revolutionary visuality that was to find one of its most appropriate settings in the Paris riots of May 1968.
