From antiglobalist activists and corporate adbusters to online hackers and guerilla street artists, the influence of the Situationist International (SI) is writ large across our contemporary cultural landscape. Formed in 1957 as a merger of four European avant-garde groups with backgrounds in Marxism and Lettrism, the SI would over the next decade introduce many key intellectual and artistic concepts to us, including the society of the spectacle, pyschogeography, unitary urbanism, and at least one major work of critical and utopian architecture in Constant's New Babylon: City for Another Life. In 50 Years of Recuperation McKenzie Wark, the critically acclaimed author of A Hacker Manifesto,explores how our contemporary understanding of art, politics, and even reality itself has been shaped by these original culture jammers.

About the Author:

McKenzie Wark was a well known Australian public intellectual who in 2000 married a New Yorker and moved to NYC. He now teaches at the New School for Social Research. In 2004 he published A Hacker Manifesto, the first critical theory of intellectual property. This controversial book has since been translated into eight languages. In 2007 he published Gamer Theory, a critique of the co-option of the spirit of play and creativity by what he calls 'gamespace'. This book was widely noted for the innovative collaborative internet version in which the author discussed the book with readers and amended it before its eventual book publication. Both books drew heavily on the work of the avant garde group the Situationist International (1957-1972), and in 2007 Wark gave the Buell center evening lecture on them, which then became 50 Years of Recuperation: The Situationist International 1957-2007.

Review:

Wark's text demonstrates both the breadth of the Situationist project and that, despite being continually mined by the academy, activists, the creative industries, and other more sinister recuperators, their work has not been depleted of its vitality. 
Jeff Kinkle, Historical Materialism

Book Description PRINCETON ARCHITECTURAL PRESS, United States, 2008. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. FYI from Wikipedia): The Situationist International was a small group of international political and artistic agitators with roots in Marxism and Lettrism. They played a central role in the theory underlying the 1968 European uprisings. They managed to use public money to publish Mustapha Khayati s pamphlet On the Poverty of Student Life and distributed thousands of copies, making the Situationists well known throughout the nonstalinst left. They were among the occupiers of the Sorbonne and defended barricades in the riots. A pointed, original, and engaged investigation of what remains vital in the endlessly provocative legacy of the Situationist International (SI) 1957-1972, one of the most important and political avant-garde groups to emerge after World War II; and how this might open the way to new practices in today s digital culture. Reassesses some of the lesser-known figures and projects that emerged from the Situationist movement, including the contributions of two women, Michele Bernstein whose strategic novel, Tous les Chevaux du Roi (All the King s Men) about her relationship with Guy Debord has recently been reissued in France, and Jacqueline de Jong, founder of the Situationist Times. This book gathers carefully selected images of the Situationists and their work, including vintage photos never published before, as well as work by contemporary artists and groups inspired by Situationist ideas, such as the Bernadette Corporation and the Radical Software Group. A part of the FORuM Project Publication series published in association with the Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture at Columbia University.
