Whither Situationism? (HOSTED MEDIA)

This article traces the historic co-option of the French Situations rebel-communist aesthetic by late late-post-modern capitalism. But this article isn’t all doom and gloom there is a light at the end of the tunnel, there the author calls for "meta-modelizations that allow us to rebuild our non-dialectical and undetermined future." My close friends will note the similarity between this notion of none-dialectical mete-modeling, with ideas we have been tossing around in our discussing of possible future art movements. In my opinion we need to continue to build on the work that has been done by the Situations and others. The main thing is to disrupt the continuation of quantifiable expansion at all levels, we must seek quality. The other trend that we must continue to feed is free or affordable activity. We must never forget that festivity makes a mockery of luxury. Let them buy and sell it, we will share it for free.
