  • The Situationist International and Occupy Wall Street

    Abstract

    The Situationist International (SI) and Occupy Wall Street (OWS) share a common discourse regarding the use of their respective site to create art. The SI acted in Paris in the 1960s; OWS operated mainly in NYC in 2011. Although their situations were different in time and place, the Situationist International and Occupy Wall Street produced an art that used the same anti-capitalist ideals, based on their own location. This thesis explores how, in both cases, public space became a canvas for site-specific artworks that were constituted of a physical and a discursive dimension.
