The Flâneur

The Flâneur

"In the 1950's the French Situationists developed a technique for travel which they called the derive, the 'drift.' They were disgusted with themselves for never leaving the usual ruts and pathways of their habit¬-driven lives; they realized they'd never even seen Paris. They began to carry out structureless random expeditions through the city, hiking or sauntering by day, drinking by night, opening up their own tight little world into a terra incognita of slums, suburbs, gardens, and adventures. They became revolutionary versions of Baudelaire's famous flâneur, the idle stroller, the displaced subject of urban capitalism."
