Ubuweb has been on a serious tear recently, and I love their twitter feed cause I get to see those gems as they roll out. Is there any better resources on the web for 20th century avant-garde art than ubuweb?
Recently they posted Guy Debord’s classic film—based on his classic book—Society of the Spectacle in its entirety with English subtitles. You can find it here. Bully for UBUWEB. The film version of Society of the Spectacle is an amazing example of filmic mashup as intellectual social critique, and I’m thinking it’s going to be the basis of an assignment for ds106 next semester.
Anyway, I think a mashup of Society of the Spectacle narrated by Videodrome‘s Dr. Oblivion is my next project. Enjoy the madness.
