A group of revolutionaries, founded in 1957, which developed a radical Marxist critque of life under advanced capitalism. They suggested and experimented with the construction of situations: the setting up of environments favourable to the fulfillment of human desires outside and against the economy of markets and wage labour. The SI analyzed the modern world from the point of view of everyday life and attacked the capitalist degradation of life and the fake models advertised by the mass media and proposed a revolutionary alternative which integrated politics, art, critical thinking, desire, and play.
