Internationale Situationniste

Twelve issues of the journal Internationale Situationniste were published between June 1958 and September 1969. Each issue edited by a different individual or group, including: Guy Debord, Mohamed Dahoiu, Giuseppe Pinot-Gallizio, Maurice Wyckaert, Constant Nieuwenhuys, Asger Jorn, Helmut Sturm, Attila Kotanyi, Jørgen Nash, Uwe Lausen, Raoul Vaneigem, Michèle Bernstein, Jeppesen Victor Martin, Jan Stijbosch, Alexander Trocchi, Théo Frey, Mustapha Khayati, Donald Nicholson-Smith, René Riesel, and René Viénet.

Internationale Situationniste was the main vehicle used by the Situationists and its members to carry the organization’s theoritical messages, as well as its view on current events and society at large. It is considered one of the most important journals of political and cultural upheaval in post-war Europe.

The periodical was initially printed in a small run, each with metallic covers of different colours. After the success of Guy Debord's La Societe du Spectacle the print run increased significantly. Five thousand copies were produced of the penultimate issue and the twelve and final issue doubled that. Page count ranges from 32 to 120.

Complete sets are valued at around $3000.

All twelve issues are available as PDF downloads from Ubuweb, here.
