Wark's text demonstrates both the breadth of the Situationist project and that, despite being continually mined by the academy, activists, the creative industries, and other more sinister recuperators, their work has not been depleted of its vitality.
Jeff Kinkle, Historical Materialism
About the Author
McKenzie Wark was a well known Australian public intellectual who in 2000 married a New Yorker and moved to NYC. He now teaches at the New School for Social Research. In 2004 he published A Hacker Manifesto, the first critical theory of intellectual property. This controversial book has since been translated into eight languages. In 2007 he published Gamer Theory, a critique of the co-option of the spirit of play and creativity by what he calls 'gamespace'. This book was widely noted for the innovative collaborative internet version in which the author discussed the book with readers and amended it before its eventual book publication. Both books drew heavily on the work of the avant garde group the Situationist International (1957-1972), and in 2007 Wark gave the Buell center evening lecture on them, which then became 50 Years of Recuperation: The Situationist International 1957-2007.
