The Revival of Psychogeography

"Psychogeography is hot. Guy Debord, founding member of Situationist International and the man who coined the term in 1955, defined the phenomenon as 'the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals'. In fact, psychogeography is the art of strolling, or just about anything that gets pedestrians off their predictable paths and leads them to a new awareness of the urban landscape. Recently we've seen a remarkable psychogeographic revival driven by several artistic urban projects and smartphone applications."

(Jeroen Beekmans, 4 January 2012, The Pop–Up City)

Nina Wenhart's blog on the prehysteries of new media

"this blog is nina wenhart's collection of resources on the various histories of new media art. it consists mainly of non or very little edited material i found flaneuring on the net, sometimes with my own annotations and comments, sometimes it's also textparts i retyped from books that are out of print.

it is also meant to be an additional resource of information and recommended reading for my students of the prehystories of new media class that i teach at the school of the art institute of chicago in fall 2008.

the focus is on the time period from the beginning of the 20th century up to today."

Constellation Model of Relations

Walter Benjamin dispels teleological historicism in place of a constellation model of relations. For him the arrangement of the arcade is symbolic of general urban design. All aspects, despite their apparent significance have bearing on all other aspects. Classical Marxist economic and cultural causation is replaced with degrees of interrelation, experienced by a Flaneur (or stroller) as they traverse a given environment.

Walter Benjamin: Das Passagen-werk / The Arcades Project

"The Arcades Project is Walter Benjamin's effort to represent and to critique the bourgeois experience of nineteenth–century history and, in so doing, to liberate the suppressed 'true history' that underlay the ideological mask. Conceived in Paris in 1927 and still in progress when Benjamin fled the Occupation in 1940, The Arcades Project was constructed over the course of thirteen years–––'the theatre,' as Benjamin called it, 'of all my struggles and all my ideas.' According to Benjamin, an arcade is a city in miniature catering to consumer needs. It is an abstraction that condenses a heterogeneous environment of shopping opportunities and goods into a unified experience."

(Howard Eiland & Howard Eiland)
