With this paper, through the exposition of main Situationst methods of critique we wish to bring out the specific form of the works of the Situationist International. The movement which emerged from the historical avant-grades and the adaptation of Marxist critique in the post-war conditions brought about the radical and uncompromisable spirit of change to the intelectual scene of Paris in the light of the student riots of May 1968. Forming of the term spectacle and the overall critique of the everyday life we shall expose though three fundamental situationist notions, that of psychogeography, dérive and détournement. Their goal was to recreate the conditions of everyday life and turn it towards the construction of situations. Aesthetic form of situationist critique we will compare to the situationist project of the Croatian avant-garde in the aftermath of the second world war on the example of the avant-garde group Gorgona and its most known artist Julije Knifer. The form of situationist opposition to the spectacle and its address to the recreation of the everyday life will be presented as a possibility of new radical praxis of diversion of meaning which demands specific inquiry in the contemporary production of theory but also the overall call to action in our medialized reality.
