CULTURAL REVOLUTION: AESTHETIC PRACTICE AFTER AUTONOMY. Sven Lutticken. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2017. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 184 pp. with 32 ills. 22 x 14 cm. ISBN 9783956791949 In English.
Publisher's description: In Cultural Revolution, Amsterdam-based historian and critic Sven Lutticken (b. 1971) looks at art and other forms of aesthetic practice in the context of our rapidly expanding and transforming cultural sphere. Addressing the renewed relevance of the notion of autonomy in a situation in which 'the autonomy of art' is a stale, historical joke, Lutticken examines practices ranging from Black Mask to Subversive Aktion, from 1960s Dutch activist group Provo to Occupy, from Wet Dreams to Metahaven, and from New World Academy to Gulf Labor. Across the pages of this book, Scarlett Johansson meets Paul Chan, and Dr. Zira from Planet of the Apes mingles with Paul Lafargue, Rudi Dutschke and Alexandre Koje`ve. Lutticken is editor for the Witte Raaf and publishes regularly in art magazines such as Jong Holland, Artforum, New Left Review, Afterimage, Texte fur Kunst and Camera Austria. Author of Sternberg titles History in Motion (2013) and Idols of the Market (2009).
