Between the Avantgarde and the Everyday free pdf The wave of anti-authoritarian political activity associated with the term 1968A" can by no means be confined under the rubric of protest,A" understood narrowly in terms of street marches and other reactions to state initiatives. Indeed, the actions generated in response to 1968A" frequently involved attempts of elaborate resistance within the realm of culture generally, and in the arts in particular. This blurring of the boundary between art and politics was a characteristic development of the political activism of the post-war period. This volume brings together a group of essays concerned with the multifaceted link between culture and politics, highlighting lesser-known case studies and opening new perspectives on the development of anti-authoritarian politics in Europe from the 1950s to the fall of Communism and beyond.
