By Gerald Raunig

Gerald Raunig has written another paintings background 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 background of progressive transgressions and expectantly charts an emergence from its stories of tragic failure and unequivocal catastrophe. through eloquently using Deleuze and Guattari's proposal of the "machine," Raunig extends the poststructuralist concept of revolution via to the explosive nexus of paintings and activism. As hopeful because it is incisive, artwork and Revolution encourages a brand new new release of artists and thinkers to refuse to take part within the drained prescriptions of industry and authority and in its place create radical new equipment of engagement. Raunig develops an necessary, modern perception of political change--a perception that transcends the superseded formulations of insurrection and resistance. an excessive amount of blood and ink has been shed for the paintings machines and the progressive machines to stay separate. Gerald Raunig is a thinker and paintings theorist who lives in Vienna, Austria.
