The Union of Time Thieves: Homo Ludens and The Festival
"For the Situationists, play was to flow spontaneously from the desires of each individual so that finally there would be no sense of boredom and no rupture between moments of play and non-play," said Jan Bryant. The idea of "play" and the everyday is one of the central critiques of the Situationist International, and is often used in the interventions they proposed in opposition to the Spectacle. Join us for a literary and musical exploration of this theme as we welcome Aspen Walker and Shampton Mononymous to the Union of Time Thieves!
