Auteur: Home, Stewart
Titel: The assault on culture
Sub titel: Utopian currents from lettrisme to class war
A critical history of radical and avant-garde art and cultural movements ranging through lettrists, COBRA, the Situationists, fluxus, the Motherfuckers, yippies, mail art, punk and Class War. "Home's book is the first that I know of to chart this particular 'tradition' and to treat it seriously. It is a healthy corrective to the overly aestheticised view of 20th century avant-garde art that now prevails." --City Limits "...essential reading for anyone interested in the subject. It demystifies the political and artistic practices of the opponents to the dominant culture and serves as basic reference for a field largely undocumented in English. It is also engagingly honest, unpretentious, questioning and immediated in its impact."
