Bulletin critique des publications préhistoriques Volume VIII – Numéro 1 – 1966 [1966]

[Internationale Situationniste] Bulletin critique des publications préhistoriques Volume VIII – Numéro 1 – 1966 [wrappers]. Internationale Situationniste – Revue de la Section Francaise de l’I.S., Numero 10 [title page]. Paris: Internationale Situationniste, March 1966. 83 p.; 24.5 x 16 cm; white wrappers with text in black.

Tenth issue of Internationale Situationniste. This was one of only two issues (the other being no.10) to have some copies bound in plain wrappers instead of the typical glossy, SI-branded wrappers.

Shall we read into this substitution a clever form of detournement? Was this a way for the S.I. to mock its own “flashy” wrappers? Evidence points to a much more pragmatic reasons: such precautions were taken to facilitate clandestine distribution in countries where the S.I.’s subversive political writings may have elicited an undue amount of interest from the authorities. Specifically, the articles “Adresse aux revolutionnaires  d’Algerie et de tous les pays” and “les luttes de classes en Algerie” would likely have proven problematic in Algeria

We do not locate any copies on OCLC.
