Game Show Debord


This is pretty fantastic. A game show spectacle uses Guy Debord as content.

I would be interested to see how would Debord comment on this.

Just a little reminder: "The spectacle is not a collection of images, rather, it is a social relationship between people that is mediated by images." Society of Spectacle: Guy Debord. What kind of social relations are becoming visible through this image? What kind of social relations are made invisible by this image?

Dear Oliver,

This is a photomontage I made in 2008 for the publication of my book "KAFKA-COLA, without pity or added sugar" (Éditions Léo Scheer, 2008)

It was credited and posted for the first time on the web in December 2008 on the blog of the éditions Leo Scheer then reposted a few days later on the blog of Pierre Assouline: "La république des livres".

I discovered that hundreds of Internet users have recently posted and re-posted this picture on Facebook, blogs and more.

Feel free to use this image but please don't forget to credit its author.

Kind Regards
Alessandro Mercuri

Dear Alessandro, thank you! It is good to know where this great image is coming from.

I had a short chat with Richard Barbrook, who pointed out that Debord was actually a strategist not a philosopher. Interesting.


This might be interesting too:


Thanks again and keep us posted on your future work.

Warmly, Oliver
