    The punk movement of the 1970s to early 1980s is examined as an art movement through archive research, interviews, and art historical analysis. It is about pop, pain, poetry, presence, and about a ‘no future’ generation refusing to be the next artworld avant-garde, instead choosing to be the ‘rear-guard’

    What makes the work of the American experimental writer Kathy Acker so utterly relevant today, almost thirty years after her passing? The articles collected in this volume aim to provide answers to this question. Indeed, through studies of both Acker’s published and unpublished works, analyses of her writing process, and pieces blurring the boundaries between critical and creative writing, these articles map the writer’s body of works and weave webs the way the “Black Tarantula” would. Kathy Acker was part of a tradition of literary radicals and rebels of the 20th century avant-garde that flourished in the Counterculture and continued in the punk culture. Through acts of literary piracy and shock tactics, she unveiled and stood against techniques of domination and control. Indeed, she appropriated others’ texts, subverted genres and genders and thus challenged the rigidity of meaning and identity to allow them to fluctuate and flow. These texts confirm the central roles of both body and language in Acker’s works as spaces of friction between power and liberation and position the writer as a radical practitioner, a visionary.

    “Nick Knight’s debut publication presents an unflinching vision of skinhead culture. A reaction to the Hippie lifestyle of the sixties and seventies, and strongly influenced by Mods and Jamaican rude boys, the skinhead movement itself was started in the mid-sixties by working-class youths in England. Knight immersed himself in their world and was able to create a genuine portrait of the youth subculture in the early eighties.The book features both written and visual musings on the style, music and behaviour that came to define the movement. The now-iconic Skinhead has become an essential fashion reference which helps to contextualise Nick Knight’s artistic and photographic trajectory”
