Edited By Eliza Steinbock, Bram Ieven, Marijke de Valck
14 December 2020

The volume - edited by Eliza Steinbock, Bram Ieven and Marijke de Valck - shows the diverse ways in which artists have sought to confront systemic crises around the globe, searching for new and enduring forms of building communities and reimagining the political horizon. The authors engage in a dialogue with these artistic efforts and their histories – in particular the earlier artistic activism that was developed during the civil rights era in the 1960s and 70s – providing valuable historical insight and new conceptual reflection on the future of aesthetic resilience.

This book - published by Routledge - will be of interest to scholars in contemporary art, history of art, film and literary studies, protest movements, and social movements.
