Archibald, D. and Lavery, C. (2020) Drifting with Debord [Film]. [Performance]

Full text not currently available from Enlighten.


In ‘Drifting with Debord’, Glasgow Glam Rock Dialogues channel the spirits of David Bowie, Suzi Quatro and Karl Marx to debate the life and legacy of Guy Debord, theoretical leader of the Paris-based Situationist International and author of ‘The Society of the Spectacle’ and ‘Theory of the Dérive’. Transposing Debord’s ideas on the dérive from street to screen, this 17-minute film explores what a drifting cinema might look and sound like as it drifts from Paris to Glasgow, from present to past, and both with and away from Debord himself.
