Society of the Spectacle

campaign design (HuMobisten, 2004)
client: WORM
April - May 2004
Rufus.K and I made this campaign for WORM as part of their publicity. They organized a festival about Guy Debord and the Situationists in May 2004 in Las Palmas, Rotterdam. The Situationists originated in a small band of avante-garde artists and intellectuals influenced by Dada, Surrealism and Lettrism.

Under capitalism, the creativity of most people had become diverted and stifled, and society had been divided into actors and spectators, producers and consumers. The Situationists therefore wanted a different kind of revolution: they wanted the imagination, not a group of men, to seize power,
and poetry and art to be made by all. Enough! they declared. To hell with work, to hell with boredom! Create and construct an eternal festival.
