In 1959 Daniel Blanchard became friends and collaborated with Guy Debord, leader of the International Situationist. Both men wrote ‘Preliminaries Towards Defining a Unitary Revolutionary Programme’, a manifesto that included art critique and specialised politics.

In the early seventies he lived in the United States and joined the counter culture movement. He is a writer, poet and translator. He has published Crisis de palabras; notas a partir de Guy Debord y Cornelius Castoriadis in Spanish (Acuarela & A. Machado, Madrid, 2007)
