The Situationist International (1957–72) was a movement of artists and intellectuals founded by Guy Debord. Its main objectives included bringing down the class society which they saw as oppressive, and fighting so-called capitalist control, or the ideological system of Western civilization today. The group’s works and projects had a considerable influence on European culture and they remain relevant given their focus on merging culture and politics and their defense of public space as a place for cultural creation and political action. The catalogue includes texts by Libero Andreotti, Constant and others, as well as documents linked to the activities of the Situationist International.
Gold does not take on any dirt. And gold, just are diamonds, is an exalted material. It possesses such a degree of abstraction that it encounters you –if you use it artistically– on an already exalted level.
