|Title||Space After Spectacle|
Andreotti and Lahiji’s The Architecture of Phantasmagoria presents an incisive critique of the discourse of spectacle in architecture. ‘Spectacle’, they note, has become the ‘tired mantra’ of a supposedly critical posture lazily reiterating its complaints against architecture as image and missing the critical thrust of Debord’s writing. Without wanting to abandon what remains for them still pertinent in Debord’s thought they suggest, in response, ‘phantasmagoria’ as a model more adequate to grasping the machinations of contemporary architecture as an apparatus of power and subjectivation than that of spectacle.
