On the Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time: The Situationist International 1957-1972 (Inst of Contemporary Art, Boston)
by Peter Wollen
Publisher's Description
The photographs, essays, drawings and original texts in this book document the rich legacy of the Situationist International, a group of European artists and writers who emerged from such avant-garde movements as COBRA, Lettrisme, and the breakup of surrealism to launch a strategy of art as cultural critique. The Situationist International's attempt to transform everyday life through their agitational activities culminated in the 1968 student uprising in Paris, when the Situationist platform shifted from aesthetic concerns to political instigation. This book is published in connection with an exhibition of Situationist works at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston.
