“The construction of situations begins beyond the ruins of the modern spectacle… The situation is thus designed to be lived by its constructors.” ~ from “Report on the construction of Situations” – The Situationist International.
“If art has died, or the audience has withered away, then we find ourselves free of two dead weights. Potentially, everyone is now some kind of artist–& potentially every audience has regained its innocence, its ability to become the art that it experiences.” ~ from “The Temporary Autonomous Zone, Ontological Anarchy, Poetic Terrorism” – Hakim Bey
