The Situationist International (1957-1972)
eds. Heinz Stahlhut, Juri Steiner, Stefan Zweifel

This publication provides an insight into one of the 20th century's most underrated (anti-)art movements. The rather shadowy existence led by the Situationists and their Lettrist predecessors in the annals of the post-war avant-garde, and the indeterminacy of their legacy are largely of their own making: their agenda of political radicalism and negativity included a strict refusal to co-operate with the "bourgeois" mass media and enter the wider intellectual and political debate. Contains critical writing, interviews, reproductions of archival images, letters, and texts.
Softcover, 8.5" x 11.25", 256 pages, 100 color/100 b&w illustrations, Published in Switzerland 2007.
