Auteur: Debord, Guy
Titel: Real Split in The International
Sub titel: Situationist International
First published in 1972, this new translation by John McHale is the first officially authorized in English. It sees Debord not only evaluate the Situationist International as a whole, but also signal the end of it. For him, it had become clear that the Situationist's success had produced - within it's own ranks as well as outside them - a host of fans and 'onlookers' who amounted to little more than consumers of a radicality that had become fashionable. In this way the movement had begun to encompass the very 'society of the spectacle' that the Situationists had challenged. There was a danger that Situationist theory could turn into ideology - Debord's reaction was to break up the movement.
