Europunk focuses on the visual culture of Punk in Europe in the second half of the 1970s. Rather than telling a well rehearsed history that follows the path of musical influences (New York – 1974; London – 1976; Continental Europe & the US West Coast – 1977/82), it starts with the simultaneous appearance of an alternative way of creating and using images in England and France around 1975-76, in the hands of graphic designers, illustrators, image makers and agitators such as Jamie Reid, Malcolm McLaren or Bazooka (a team consisting of Olivia Clavel, Kiki Picasso, Loulou Picasso, Ti-5 Dur and Bernard Vidal). It proceeds with the images and methods that began to spread all over Europe, before the advent of New-Wave and the transfer into high-culture, with emphasis on local scenes as lively as Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Düsseldorf, Geneva, London, Manchester, Milano, Paris, Pordenone, Zürich.
