DESCRIPTION:
SOCIETY OF THE SPECTACLE (LA SOCIÉTÉ DU SPECTACLE) by Guy Debord
Tuesday, June 5. Zeitgeist. 9:30PM. $7 general / $6 students & seniors / $5 Zeitgeist / FREE for Tulane Students and Faculty. Booking
1973, 88 mins. Legendary in its influence, Debord's adaption of his own 1967 book of the same name, Society of The Spectacle is by genre an essay, based primarily on pre-existing and recontextualized images. Those images include sequences from Hollywood features, East Block features, news footage, documentary footage, TV commercials, soft-core porn, and vast number of stills, some of which seem to have been shot explicitly for this film. In societies dominated by modern conditions of production, life is presented as an immense accumulation of spectacles. Everything that was directly lived has receded into a representation. The images detached from every aspect of life merge into a common stream in which the unity of that life can no longer be recovered. Fragmented views of reality regroup themselves into a new unity as a separate pseudoworld that can only be looked at. The specialization of images of the world evolves into a world of autonomized images where even the deceivers are deceived. The spectacle is a concrete inversion of life, an autonomous movement of the nonliving. The spectacle presents itself simultaneously as society itself, as a part of society, and as a means of unification. As a part of society, it is the focal point of all vision and all consciousness. But due to the very fact that this sector is separate, it is in reality the domain of delusion and false consciousness: the unification it achieves is nothing but an official language of universal separation. The spectacle is not a collection of images; it is a social relation between people that is mediated by images.
