Bored with Debord?
The Autumn 2008 season of Conversations hosted by Rethinking Cities opens with Alan Bullion posing the question: "Are we bored with Debord? What can we derive from his concept of drift in the modern city?" - do come and join Alan in Conversation on Wednesday 29 October, 2008.
It is forty years since Debord’s “Society of the Spectacle” triggered civil unrest in the streets of Paris. As the leader of the political art movement known as the Situationists in the early 1960’s, Guy Debord was a proponent of the ‘derive’, to walk through, was to understand the city and its class struggles. Alan Bullion who describes himself as a metrosexual man of the city and suburbs and is the Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Sevenoaks poses the question: "Are we bored with Debord? What can we derive from his concept of drift in the modern city?"
This Conversation will take place on the evening of Wednesday 29 October at the Royal Commonwealth Society, Northumberland Avenue, London.
