Timothy Brown und Lorena Anton (Hg.): Between the Avantgarde and the Everyday. Subversive Politics in Europe, 1958-2008
. New York/Oxford: Berghahn Books 2011.

In recent years, it has become increasingly clear that protest can no longer be understood narrowly in terms of demonstrations, boycotts, sit-ins or teach-ins. Indeed, the action forms popularized since the 1960s frequently involve attempts to elaborate resistance to hegemonic social forces by activity in the realm of  culture generally, and in the arts in particular. The blurring of the boundaries between art and politics may been as a characteristic development of the political activism of the post-war period.

„Between the Avant Garde and the Everyday“ brings together twelve cutting-edge essays by an interdisciplinary group of international scholars concerned with the multifaceted link between culture and politics. Highlighting little-known case studies, this book presents an exciting range of new perspectives on cultural politics and the politics of culture in Europe from the 1950s to the fall of Communism and beyond.
