Другие имена: Ги Дебор

Ги Дебо́р — французский революционер леворадикального толка, философ, историк, писатель, художник-авангардист, режиссёр. Видный член «Интернационала леттристов» и группы «Социализм или варварство». В 1957 году принял активное участие в создании Ситуационистского интернационала. После событий мая 1968 года в ситуационистском движении произошёл упадок, в результате чего в 1972 году интернационал был распущен. Несмотря на свою неудачу, идеи ситуационистов оказали влияние на культуру и политику в Европе и США.

Наиболее известен благодаря своей концепции «общества спектакля», изложенной в книге «Общество спектакля» и в комментариях к ней.


„Искусство перестало быть наркотиком, оно стало обезболивающим.“

„В мире господствует банальность.“


„В обществе, которое отменило всякое приключение остаётся единственное приключение: отменить общество.“

„Young people everywhere have been allowed to choose between love and a garbage disposal unit. Everywhere they have chosen the garbage disposal unit.“

„Quotations are useful in periods of ignorance or obscurantist beliefs.“ Society of the Spectacle

„Like lost children we live our unfinished adventures.“ The Society of the Spectacle

„The more powerful the class, the more it claims not to exist.“ The Society of the Spectacle

„... just as early industrial capitalism moved the focus of existence from being to having, post-industrial culture has moved that focus from having to appearing.“ The Society of the Spectacle


„The spectacle is not a collection of images, but a social relation among people, mediated by images.“ The Society of the Spectacle

„Ideas improve. The meaning of words participates in the improvement. Plagiarism is necessary. Progress implies it. It embraces an author's phrase, makes use of his expressions, erases a false idea, and replaces it with the right idea.“

„In societies where modern conditions of production prevail, all of life presents itself as an immense accumulation of spectacles. Everything that was directly lived has moved away into a representation.“

„The more he identifies with the dominant images of need, the less he understands his own life and his own desires. The spectacle’s estrangement from the acting subject is expressed by the fact that the individual’s gestures are no longer his own; they are the gestures of someone else who represents them to him.“ The Society of the Spectacle


„In a world that has REALLY been turned on its head, truth is a moment of falsehood.“

„Tourism, human circulation considered as consumption is fundamentally nothing more than the leisure of going to see what has become banal.“

„I have written much less than most people who write; I have drunk much more than most people who drink.“

„The story of terrorism is written by the state and it is therefore highly instructive… compared with terrorism, everything else must be acceptable, or in any case more rational and democratic.“ The Society of the Spectacle
