Situationist International – quote about subversive quality of everyday life

Rrose Sélavy would agree:

“People who talk about revolution and class struggle without referring explicitly to everyday life, without understanding what is subversive about love and what is positive in the refusal of constraints, such people have a corpse in their mouth”- Raoul Vaneigem, The Revolution Of Everyday Life

There has been a lot of activity over the past few weeks. Giving the unconscious space and time to place its productions has worked…a whole series of potential or real visual artifacts have been generated, and I spent quite a bit of time playing around with art supplies of various types to implement a few of them. More are planned for the animation and multimedia courses this winter.

Some way to play surrealist games with a collection of creative people is also being imagined. I’ve re-acquired the book of Surrealist Games, which I once owned in California.

The fictional persona, Rrose Sélavy, has long been a surrealist. I rather seem to be a practitioner, as well.
