The guest on the Diet Soap podcast this week is an author and a professor of Communications at the New School, McKenzie Wark. Wark’s latest book “The Spectacle of Disintegration” is the subject for today’s podcast and I was glad for the chance to discuss some of my favorite avant guard radicals, namely the Situationist International, with him today.
There are several sound clips in this episode. You’ll hear many clips from the American situationist film Call it Sleep, as well as clips of TJ Clark, Andrew Kliman, and Woody Allen. Pierre Schaeffer’s avant guard Symphony Apostrophe comes near the end of the episode.
