Situationist International

The Situationists were an international organisation founded in 1957 by avant-garde artists and revolutionaries that followed the councilist model. Although very small, the Situationists had a remarkable influence over activists in the run-up to May 1968 and during the events that took place in France at the time.

The organisation defined its aims in its journal internationale situationniste which can be described as at the intersection of art, politics, architecture and reality. In 1972, Situationist International announced its dissolution.
