We’ve got a situation

The Situationist International always sought out unusual ways and means of grasping the world around them and changing it for the better. The members of the group believed life itself should be a work of art.

In various ways they tried to create “situations” that would irritate their fellow human beings’ ways of thinking. In the exhibition The Most Dangerous Game there are examples of such interventions: transformed maps, photographs, drawings, paintings and pictures of the artists in action. There’s plenty of inspiration – now it’s time to come up with your own “situations” and test their effects! A workshop for young, critical minds who enjoy lateral thinking.
