Over fifty years after the Situationist International appeared, its legacy continues to inspire activists, artists and theorists around the world. Such a legend has accrued to this movement that the story of the SI now demands to be told in a contemporary voice capable of putting it into the context of twenty-first-century struggles. McKenzie Wark delves into the Situationists’ unacknowledged diversity, revealing a world as rich in practice as it is in theory. Tracing the group’s development from the bohemian Paris of the ’50s to the explosive days of May ’68, Wark’s take on the Situationists is biographically and historically rich, presenting the group as an ensemble creation, rather than the brainchild and dominion of its most famous member, Guy Debord. Roaming through Europe and the lives of those who made up the movement – including Constant, Asger Jorn, Michèle Bernstein, Alex Trocchi and Jacqueline De Jong – Wark uncovers an international movement riven with conflicting passions. Accessible to those who have only just discovered the Situationists and filled with new insights, The Beach Beneath the Street rereads the group’s history in the light of our contemporary experience of communications, architecture, and everyday life. The Situationists tried to escape the world of twentieth-century spectacle and failed in the attempt. Wark argues that they may still help us to escape the twenty-first century, while we still can.

»Vielleicht brauchen wir eine neue kritische Theorie. Oder eine neu-alte, denn wie sich herausstellt, gab es bereits einmal eine kraftvolle und originelle Denkströmung, die in einem früheren, gescheiterten Versuch, die Vorgeschichte – die Zeit vor dem Anthropozän – zu beenden, beinahe ausgelöscht worden wäre.« Im Rückgriff auf die Ideengeschichte des 20. Jahrhunderts, insbesondere auf Alexander Bogdanov und Andrej Platonow, versucht McKenzie Wark in diesem radikalen Großessay die Grundlegung einer Theorie für das Anthropozän. Er fordert dabei einen alternativen – und keinen spekulativen – Realismus. Einen Realismus, der für plurale, sich mit anderen Geschichten befassende Narrative offen ist. Im Schatten der Kohlenstoffbefreiungsfront ruft er dazu auf, eine neue Poetik und Technik zur Wissensorganisation zu erschaffen, und wagt es, die Misere unserer Zeit neu zu denken.

This book explores a type of wandering referred to as “errant bodies.” This form of wandering is intentional, without specific destination, and operates as a means of resistance against hegemonic forms of power and cultural prescriptions. Beginning with an examination of the character and particulars of being an errant body, the book investigates historical errant bodies including Ancient Greek Cynics, Punks, Baudelaire, Situationists, Earhart, Kerouac, Fuller, Baudrillard, Hamish Fulton, and Keri Smith. Being an errant body means stepping to the side of dominant culture, creating a potential means of political resistance in the technologically driven twenty-first century.

Früher gab es einen Marktplatz und einen Markttag – mittlerweile haben die Läden immer länger geöffnet, und der Kapitalismus kolonialisiert die letzte Pore der Lebenswelt. In einer von wachsender Ungleichheit geprägten Gegenwart setzen viele Linke ihre letzte Hoffnung in die sozialen Medien, eine Haltung, die César Rendueles als naiven »Cyberfetischismus« kritisiert. Mit einem Gespür für große historische Bögen und einem an Slavoj Žižek erinnernden Talent, aus popkulturellen Referenzen theoretische Funken zu schlagen, legt er dar, dass politischer Wandel nur möglich sein wird, wenn wir die »Soziophobie«, die Angst vor der Kooperation mit den anderen, überwinden. »Wenn viele gleichzeitig dasselbe machen«, so Rendueles, »heißt das noch lange nicht, dass sie es gemeinsam tun.«

The Everyday: Experiences, Concepts and Narratives is an inter-disciplinary book problematizing the slippery notion of 'Everyday Life'.

In their depth and breadth, the chapters compiled here all work with an understanding of everyday life that is i...

Whose Book is it Anyway? is a provocative collection of essays that opens out the copyright debate to questions of open access, ethics, and creativity. It includes views – such as artist’s perspectives, writer’s perspectives, feminist, and international perspectives – that are too often marginalized or elided altogether. The diverse range of contributors take various approaches, from the scholarly and the essayistic to the graphic, to explore the future of publishing based on their experiences as publishers, artists, writers and academics. Considering issues such as intellectual property, copyright and comics, digital publishing and remixing, and what it means (not) to say one is an author, these vibrant essays urge us to view central aspects of writing and publishing in a new light. Whose Book is it Anyway? is a timely and varied collection of essays. It asks us to reconceive our understanding of publishing, copyright and open access, and it is essential reading for anyone invested in the future of publishing.

The Situationist International In Britain

This book tells, for the first time, the story of the Situationist International’s influence and afterlives in Britain, where its radical ideas have been rapturously welcomed and fiercely resisted. The Situationist International presented itself as the culmination of the twentieth century avant-garde tradition — as the true successor of Dada and Surrealism. Its grand ambition was not unfounded. Though it dissolved in 1972, generations of artists and writers, theorists and provocateurs, punks and psychogeographers have continued its effort to confront and contest the ‘society of the spectacle.’ This book constructs a long cultural history, beginning in the interwar period with the arrival of Surrealism to Britain, moving through the countercultures of the 1950s and 1960s, and finally surveying the directions in which Situationist theory and practice are being taken today. It combines agile historicism with close readings of a vast range of archival and newly excavated materials, including newspaper reports, underground pamphlets, Psychogeographical films, and experimental novels. It brings to light an overlooked but ferociously productive period of British avant-garde practice, and demonstrates how this subterranean activity helps us to understand postwar culture, late modernism, and the complex internationalization of the avant-garde. As popular and academic interest in the Situationists grows, this book offers an important contribution to the international history of the avant-garde and Surrealism. It will prove a valuable resource for researchers and students of English and Comparative Literature, Modernism and the Avant-Gardes, Twentieth Century and Contemporary History, Cultural Studies, Art History, and Political Aesthetics.

An einem strahlenden Sommertag kreuzen sich die Wege von vier Menschen am Hafen von Sydney, in der Nähe der berühmten Oper. Scharen von Touristen vermischen sich hier mit Einwohnern der Stadt. Alle vier tragen an ihrer Geschichte: Ellie erinnert sich an ihre Liebe zu James als Vierzehnjährige in der kleinen Provinzstadt, in der sie aufwuchsen. James ist besessen von einer Tragödie, für die er sich verantwortlich glaubt. Catherine trauert um ihren Bruder Brendan, der vor einigen Jahren in Dublin starb. Und Pei Xing fährt jeden Samstag nach Sydney, um einer einstigen Lageraufseherin aus Pasternaks Doktor Schiwago vorzulesen. Gail Jones folgt diesen Figuren durch Sydney, auf ihren eigenen und doch verbundenen Wegen, eingehüllt in Erinnerungen, Schuld und Bedauern, während die Stadt um sie herumwirbelt. Aber es ist eine fünfte Figur, ein Kind, dessen Anwesenheit am Hafen diesen Tag bestimmt. "Ein Samstag in Sydney" ist ein tief berührender Roman über Liebe, Verlust und die Last der Vergangenheit. Das Buch ist auf den Shortlists für den Victorian Premier's Literary Award 2012 und den australischen Festival Award for Literature 2012 und auf der Longlist für die Australian Literary Society Gold Medal 2012
