Textul de pe ultima copertă
'The essays, gathered from various and sometimes surprising sources by Carol Becker, are not only stimulating in themselves but serve as guides to a sector of contemporary artistic activity many find perplexing and many more find troubling. The works conceived of in the spirit of these texts not only challenge how we are to think about art, but how we are to respond to the social questions art addresses, sometimes vehemently. For the art is not only political in intention, but subversive in its means.
