Notes for a 21st Century Popular Avant-Garde

3.00

While "popular" and "avant-garde" appear at odds with each other in contemporary culture, Red Wedge sees them, like others before us, as torn halves of the same whole. Rejoining them is to liberate art, and can only be accomplished through artists allying themselves with revolutionary struggle.

This pamphlet is a pillar of Red Wedge's political and artistic outlook. Arguing for a re-orientation of radical artistic production, it cites examples from Frida Kahlo to Rock Against Racism in an attempt to re-forge an artistic practice that puts the radical imagination at the center while shunning the commodification of the culture industry and the isolation of the underground.
