Featuring works by around eighty artists

Subversive Practices is a companion piece to the exhibition of the same name mounted at the Württembergischer Kunstverein in Stuttgart in 2009. The publication is devoted to experimental and conceptual art practices that were established between the sixties and eighties in Europe and South America under conditions of military dictatorships and communist regimes. The focus is on artistic practices that not only radically question the conventional concept of art, the institutions, and the relationship between art and the public, but that have, at the same time, subversively thwarted structures of censorship and opposed the existing systems of power.

The book documents the exhibition, which featured over three hundred works, and contains numerous texts, manifestos, and other writings from the sixties to the eighties, most of which are appearing in English and German for the first time.
