Product Description

ART IS NOT A MIRROR TO REFLECT REALITY, BUT A HAMMER WITH WHICH TO SHAPE IT

FROM THE DIGGERS’ SEIZURE OF ST.GEORGE’S HILL IN 1649 TO HACKTIVISTS STAGING VIRTUAL SIT-INS IN THE TWWNTY-FIRST CENTURY, FROM THE RETRIBUTIVE FANTASIES OF ROBIN HOODS TO THE IMAGINARY OMNIPOTENCE OF GANGSTA RAPPERS, CULTURE HAS LONG BEEN USED AS A POLITICAL WEAPON.

THIS EXPANSIVE AND CAREFULLY CRAFTED READER BEINGS TOGETHER THE CLASSIC TEXTS THAT HELP DEFINE CULTURE AS A TOOL OF RESISTANCE. WITH CONSISE, ILLMINATING INTRODUCTIONS THROUGHOUT, IT PRESENTS A RANGE OF THEORETICAL AND HISTORICAL WRITING THAT HAVE SHAPED CONTEMPORARY DEBATE, AND INCLUDES A NUMBER OF NEW ACTIVIST AUTHORS PUBLISHED HERE FOR THE FIRST TIME.
