Product Description

Review

"The pathos of these letters is that Situationism is falling apart even as it is coming together, and that, in the complicated machinations of his scattered group, Debord is able to perform as many acts of friendship as he does of malice. To borrow the title of the film he made in 1959 about his Lettrist friends, the letters trace a 'passage of a few people through a rather brief moment in time,' a tracing again triangulated by three comrades above all Pinot, Jorn and Constant." Hal Foster London Review of Books

McKenzie Wark is an Australian-born writer whose books include Virtual Geography, A Hacker Manifesto, Gamer Theory, The Beach Beneath the Street,Telesthesia and The Spectacle of Disintegration. He teaches at The New School in New York City.

By Richard Kaplan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a collection of letters from Guy Debord. Unfortunately, they give some but not much insight into Debord's theories or his personal life or the political context. They are largely filled with the mundane administrative tasks of a leftist journal editor -- Long may he ask for articles and issue threats to recalcitrant authors. Even for the historian, these will be mostly unilluminating.
