SCANDINAVIAN SITUATIONISM - DIVIDED WE STAND!
INFOPOOL @THE CLINIC
DECEMBER 7th – DECEMBER 9th 2001
Picking-up from the earlier archeology of Stewart Home and Fabian Tompsett, the Infopool project re-emerges in London at Clinic to present the ongoing outcome of its research-drift into Scandinavian Situationism. With the Debord industry burgeoning to the detriment of a wider appreciation of all facets of a situationistic movement - its exclusion zones, its offer of a non-compliant cultural politics - Infopool have assembled a website of translated texts drawn from the much underestimated Bauhaus Situationniste and offset these with a selection from Internationale Situationniste. To accompany this web-anthology an introduction - Divided We Stand - will be issued as Infopool No.4. This texcursion provides an outline of the activities of the Bauhaus Situationniste from 1962 to 1974 and pits their activities against a discussion of situationism that adumbrates some of the movement's unconscious aporias: sovereign power, individualism and the resultant ‘organisational void’.
