This account of the years 1955-69 examines artists from Europe and America who worked throughout the Civil Rights movement, the Vietnam War and the general social crises of the time. The book explores the relationship between art and politics, showing how the rhetoric of one informed or subverted the other. It also traces the aesthetic climate that challenged established notions of content, style, medium and audience and forged new bonds between performance and visual arts.
