Assault on the Impossible

In stock

The second Autonomedia book to focus on the Provo period in the Netherlands, this title widens the field from Kempton's Provo:Amsterdam's Anarchist Revolt, investigating the aesthetic attitudes and ludic interventions that created the context that allowed for the politics.

Like my own community, the SF Diggers, and our English counterparts spoken for by Alex Trocchi, [the radical seers in the Netherlands] felt commonly that "the coup du monde must be in the broad sense cultural." This important book chronicles the prescience and remarkable vision of these Dutch cultural guerrillas, who had a much deeper permanent effect on their own culture than we did. I urge all those with the instincts of anarchism to read it. Those without those instincts should read it too.
