DESTRUCTION OF THE RSG-6

Featuring the essay by Guy Debord, “The Situations and the New Action Forms in Politics and Art,” in Danish, English, and French, this publication also includes photographs of Debord, Michele Bernstein, Jan Stijbosch, and J.V. Martin, along with reproductions of paintings. This show marks the first and last collective art show of the Situationist International in the context of a gallery. For the show, the Situationists created “an atmosphere of an atomic shelter,” and sought a way to use modern art to both critique politics while simultaneously critiquing itself as an institution. Held by just six libraries worldwide, this publication is an exceedingly rare look into the artistic practices of the Situationist International, especially as after the 1962 schism they increasingly tended towards less explicitly artistic goals.
