This is a magazine I put together in 1974. Some of it was written by me, some by others (eg, “Irish Bone Stew” , “Theses on Feminism” and the back cover were almost wholly written by Paul Sieveking, though I added a bit to the two texts, and almost certainly he took the vast majority of those texts from someone else). It’s got something fresh and original about it – even though it’s a hotchpotch of pro-situ stuff (unearned/unlived ideas). Symptomatic of the spirit of the times. Strictly archive stuff.
If anyone wants a docx version of this, it’s 47.2Mo and if you send an email to SamFanto@riseup.net, I’ll send it back if your email server supports such a large text. It was too large to convert to a pdf, at least with my pdf converter.
see “re-fuse” for an auto-critique of this text
‘a hotchpotch of pro-situ stuff”. No. It was an Inception style treatment of Situationist ideas using (1) Psychogeography and (2) Detournement to interrogate culture and its reifications – the text is arranged as a Drift….it is still brilliantly original in the way that it creates space for individual acts of wayfinding, cognitive mapping and sense-making – if you read the text then you are already Drifting….it is still alive and shifting with possibilities and dialectical energies…I still think it is the most interesting project [name deleted] did.
Re. Ireland, this article on post-WWI soviets-cum-workers councils, occupations and strikes is interesting:
