LIFE ON SIRIUS: THE SITUATIONIST INTERNATIONAL AND THE EXHIBITION AFTER ART. Ed. by Daniel Birnbaum and Kim West. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 72 pp. 12 x 7 cm. ISBN 9783956791987 In English.
Publisher's description: Evolving out of the All the King's Horses series, a multinational project made up of seminars, exhibitions and events following the Situationist International and its network of related groups to various places in Europe, this new publication by Daniel Birnbaum and Kim West looks back at the Situationist confrontations with museums and its meaning today. Organized jointly with Moderna Museet in Stockholm, Life on Sirius traces a path beyond the Situationists' negativity, anti-art techniques and slogans to outline a sustainable, micro-political alternative. At its center is the concept of play as a lever of instrumentalization. The Situationists were arguably the last and most influential avant-garde movement of the European postwar era. The Situationist International, the hub of the movement that developed several famous concepts and methods in the 1950s and 1960s aimed at transcending art and tearing down established culture continues to be influential on contemporary art and thinking today.
