Focusing on the production of post-punk art, film, music, and publishing, this book offers new perspectives on an overlooked period of cultural activity, and probes the lessons that might be learnt from history for artists and musicians working under 21st century conditions of austerity. Includes contemporary reflections by those who shaped avant-garde and contestatory culture in the 1970s and 1980s, alongside contributions by contemporary artists and scholars. Focusing on the UK, US, Brazil and Poland, the book provides critical perspectives on post-punk then and its relation to the aesthetics and politics of cultural production today.
