Between the Avant-garde and the Everyday: Subversive Politics in Europe from 1957 to the Present

Professor Timothy Brown is the co-editor of a new volume entitled Between the Avant-garde and the Everyday: Subversive Politics in Europe from 1957 to the Present (Berghahn Books, 2011). Professor Brown’s volume brings together a group of essays examining the interaction between culture and politics and the development of anti-authoritarian politics in Europe from the 1950s to the fall of Communism. These protests frequently involved attempts to 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 postwar period.
