The situationist movement emerged in response to the ‘economic preparation’ Jameson identifies in the 1950s and early 1960s. In another essay, Jameson proposes that this period came to an end between 1972 and 1974, due to the onset of a world economic crisis (1973–74) and related philosophical, cultural and political changes, and following a preparatory shift between 1967 and 1968, again connected to economic crises in Germany and the US (Jameson 1984: 205). The 1968 events in Paris and the 1972 dissolution of the SI are not coincidentally linked to this general outline, which, in Jameson’s analysis, is one of the recuperation and proletarianisation of energies released in the 1960s.
The economic preparation of postmodernism or late capitalism began in the 1950s … On the other hand, the psychic habitus of the new age demands the absolute break, strengthened by a generational rupture, achieved more properly in the 1960s. (Jameson 1991: xx)
