"The expression "Society of the Spectacle" was conceived by Guy Debord and presented in his book published in 1967. The book and concept were the result of a militant experience that was at the same time, that is, inextricably political and artistic-cultural within the Situationist International, a movement dedicated to synthesizing and overcoming the role of the artistic avant-garde in the mid-twentieth century."
