Guy Debord (1931-1994) was a marxist revolutionary. He was central to the student uprising in 1968 that led to the General Strike in France. He was co-founder of the Situationist International that fused avant garde art and politics as a anti-capitalist weapon.
“One should bear in mind when reading this book that it was written with the deliberate intention of doing harm to spectacular society.” – Guy Debord
