Summary expansion
The Situationist International has provided inspiration for generations of revolutionary activists and artist. This is no less the case today, with new waves of anti-capitalist protest deploying political strategies of aesthetic disruption pioneered by the Situationists. This book addresses and seeks to understand their continued relevance through investigating the idea from which they took their name: the constructed situation. Beginning with a deep philosophical genealogy, Stracey methodically examines the Situationists' development and realisations through a constellation of extraordinary case studies. Finally, on this basis, she considers Situationism's legacy afresh
