The Revenge of the Situationists
McKenzie Wark with Michèle Bernstein and Jaqueline de Jong
Forty-five years since the momentous events of May 1968 that brought Paris to a standstill, what happened to one of the movement’s key players, the Situationist International?
The Spectacle of Disintegration is McKenzie Wark’s follow-up to his colourful history The Beach Beneath the Street. It traces the group’s trajectory after their disbandment following that historical watershed.
Wark is joined by Michèle Bernstein, writer and founding member of the SI, and artist Jaqueline de Jong.
