HMS-656P The Situationists

3 Credits

A revolutionary, theoretical, political, aesthetic, social movement that originated in Europe in the late 1950s, the Situationists International (SI) was concerned with conducting a penetrating critique of post-war capitalist consumerism and its effects on everyday life. This course will seek to critically address and re-frame the relevance of the SI within the context of contemporary debates surrounding aesthetics, digital capitalism, social media and the transformation of urban space.
