Here are all the possible meanings and translations of the word situationist international.


  1. Situationist International

    The Situationist International was a radical international organization of revolutionaries with an exclusive membership made up of avant-garde artists, intellectuals, and political theorists, active from its formation in 1957 to its dissolution in 1972. The intellectual foundation of the Situationist International derived from anti-authoritarian Marxism and the avant-garde art movements of the early 20th century, namely Dada and Surrealism; situationist theory represented an attempt to synthesize these theoretical disciplines, as well as other influences, into a comprehensive and modern critique of mid-20th century advanced capitalism. Although the situationists recognized capitalism had changed since Marx's formative writings, they argued that Marx's analysis of the structure and class system of capitalism remained fundamentally correct, and they resolutely rejected the idea that advanced capitalism's apparent successes—such as technological advancement, increased income, and increased leisure—could ever outweigh the misery of social alienation and commodity fetishism it simultaneously inflicted. This understanding of modern society was significantly influenced by Marx's theory of alienation, which the situationists extensively expanded upon and adapted; they asserted that the extension of social alienation and commodity relations was no longer limited to the fundamental components of capitalist society, such as production or the class system, but now reached across every aspect of life and culture.
