Question: How does one ‘do’ deconstruction and detournement without it becoming simply an academic enterprise?
Answer: Laibach !!! What’s interesting about this metal/industrial/rock German band is their use of situationist strategies such as detournement and provocation and also their discursive deconstruction of ideas such as nation state, capitalism and immigration – for more info check out Parker’s work on ‘Micronations of the self in times of war’ in the Psychology after discourse analysis book – interesting reading 🙂     Some really interesting concepts and ideas here which i want to develop in some future work!
