By Gerald Raunig

Gerald Raunig has written an alternate artwork heritage of the "long 20th century," from the Paris Commune of 1871 to the turbulent counter-globalization protests in Genoa in 2001. Meticulously relocating from the Situationists and Sergei Eisenstein to Viennese Actionism and the PublixTheatreCaravan, artwork and Revolution takes at the heritage of innovative transgressions and confidently charts an emergence from its stories of tragic failure and unequivocal catastrophe. via eloquently making use of Deleuze and Guattari's thought of the "machine," Raunig extends the poststructuralist idea of revolution via to the explosive nexus of paintings and activism. As hopeful because it is incisive, artwork and Revolution encourages a brand new iteration of artists and thinkers to refuse to take part within the drained prescriptions of market and authority and as an alternative create radical new tools of engagement. Raunig develops an quintessential, modern notion of political change--a belief that transcends the outdated formulations of insurrection and resistance. an excessive amount of blood and ink has been shed for the artwork machines and the progressive machines to stay separate. Gerald Raunig is a thinker and paintings theorist who lives in Vienna, Austria.
