The Situationists were an interesting bunch to say the least, their views having been embodied by those students and even workers that protested and went on strike in May 1968, bringing France to a halt and causing the most significant political crisis it had experienced since WW II. It was bad enough for President De Gaulle to flee the country to Germany, and rumors that NATO might have been prepared to intervene were abound. For various reasons it ended before it reached that step, and the subsequent elections returned the ruling government with an even stronger position.

Though their movement ended up dying off after the events of May 1968 in France, it still had some long-lasting impacts on those using art to criticize consumer culture in particular, as well as the prevailing political consensus. Some of their stuff can be seen among groups that participate in protests going on currently against the economic depression and the reaction of countries to it.

I've started searching this movement from an artistic point of view..but I found those information, you gave to me, useful in order to understand them!:)
