Forthcoming Situationist Activity

Potlatch #30 (15 July 1959)

Translated by Reuben Keehan

THE FORTHCOMING number of the journal Internationale Situationniste, the SI's central bulletin, will be published this September [1959]. This will be a double issue (3-4) specially devoted to the debates and the decisions of the Munich conference, and other aspects of unitary urbanism.

A general demonstration by the situationist movement is to take place in Amsterdam at the end of May, 1960. The project will involve, simultaneously, the construction of a labyrinth and the arrangement of ludic atmospheric elements in its interior; an exhibition of objects and documents; a permanent cycle of conferences; and a direct intervention into the urban planning and daily life of a major city through the organization of radio guided dérives.
