Working notes from the Scandinavian Institute for Computational Vandalism

Situological

Very interested in the situological and situographical development of topology. It will be necessary to stay rapidly informed of all the scientific conclusions about this — and to adapt or détourn them. The primary force of our position is to intervene therein as an artistic activity (with a game of gestures raised to the dignity of art) whereas the former dominant tendency was toward objective observation.

Guy Debord in letter to Asger Jorn, July 6 1960
