The wave of anti-authoritarian political activity associated with the term "e;1968"e; can by no means be confined under the rubric of "e;protest,"e; understood narrowly in terms of street marches and other reactions to state initiatives. Indeed, the actions generated in response to "e;1968"e; 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. This volume brings together a group of essays concerned with the multifaceted link between culture and politics, highlighting lesser-known case studies and opening new perspectives on the development of anti-authoritarian politics in Europe from the 1950s to the fall of Communism and beyond.
