Photography, Writing, and Cinema in the Work of Guy Debord
This chapter focuses on photography in relation to the writing, political activity, and cinematic work of Guy Debord. It discusses Debord’s 1967 book La Societe du Spectacle (The Society of the Spectacle), in which he translated Carl Marx’s “capital” into “image” and provided key elements to social relations, structures of feeling, and historical developments. The Society of the Spectacle compiles images that depict the social relation among people, playing a crucial role for Debord in defining what an image actually is, and how it relates to practical interventions and theoretical concepts.
