Titel: Riot Grrrl
Sub titel: Revolution Girl Style Now!
Riot Grrrl is a vivid documentation of the fierce music, renegade art and independent literature that emerged from suburban America in the late 1980s and became a global phenomenon. With the rallying cry “REVOLUTION GIRL STYLE NOW!” this community of musicians, artists and activists inspired young women across the world to pick up guitars and rewrite rock history, changing the face of feminism and underground culture forever. Told from the perspective of those directly involved, Riot Grrrl: Revolution Girl Style Now! is a uniquely comprehensive exploration of this pioneering scene and its interlinked music, art and zine communities. Profiling bands from the movement’s ground-breaking beginnings through to those still prominent, including Bratmobile, Bikini Kill, Huggy Bear, Lungleg, Mambo Taxi and Le Tigre. Riot Grrrl narrates the changing face of guerrilla activism through exploring the movement’s characteristic art and aesthetic, discussing collectives such as the Guerrilla Girls and surveying the influential zine movement.
