Guy Debord’s The Game of War meets McKenzie Wark’s The Beach Beneath the Street

“In [The] Game of War, history is made mobile again, in an irreversible time where strategy can reverse the course of events.”

McKenzie Wark, 50 Years of Recuperation of the Situtationist International

Public Reading Rooms,
5 Caledonian Road,
King’s Cross,
London N1 9DX.

Wednesday 24th August,
3.00pm onwards.

McKenzie Wark will be playing The Game of War with members of Class Wargames at Housmans to celebrate the launch of his new book: The Beach Beneath the Street: The Everyday Life and Glorious Times of the Situationist International. While manoeuvring for maximum advantage on the ludic battlefield, we will be discussing how the political and artistic insights of Situationism can be used to subvert spectacular capitalism in the 21st century.
