THE MEDIA SOCIETY: An analysis of how human relations, including language, have been staged. Here in a cool elegance, what Debord himself called «the style of negation».

Guy Debords La societe du spectacle is available in a new Danish translation with the title The spectacular community. It is a special kind of book. When it came out in 1967, it was an attempt to map a new historical situation in order to help a communist revolution on the way.

Not many of these books existed in 1967, and there are even fewer today, with few daring to embark on such an ambitious affair as drawing an overall picture of it KapitalistIcelandic society and its contradictions. With The Spectacular Society, Debord described the crucial political factors of the second half of the 20th century. He was fully aware of the provocativeness of such an undertaking.
