Situationist Writing

"Situationist" - Having to do with the theory or practical activity of constructing situations;

One who engages in the construction of situations - A member of the Situationist Internationale.

"The whole life of those societies in which modern conditions of production prevail presents itself as an immense accumulation of spectacles. All that was once directly lived has become mere representation"  Guy Debord (Society of the Spectacle)

"People who talk about revolution and class struggle without referring explicitly to everyday life, without understanding what is subversive about love and what is positive in the refusal of constraints, such people have a corpse in their mouth"  Raoul Vaneigem (The Revolution of Everyday life)
