Realizing the Impossible: Art Against Authority (book)
by Josh MacPhee and Erik Ruin
Inspiring, informative, and diverse, this book is a rare look at the intersection of art and anarchism. It touches on a broad range of topics not just pertaining to Anarchism, but also more broadly to anti-authoritarianism and the way these social movements have shaped their own art movement. And who better than current anarchist artists/authors to write the history of those that came before them?! Icky A. interviews "Anarchy: A Graphic Guide's" Clifford Harper. Erick Lyle takes a walk through the stenciled streets of Argentina. Meredith Stern contributes a wonderful series of interviews with over a dozen contemporary political artists, unfortunately cut down from the original 60 pages she collected. (hopefully, those will appear elsewhere before too long.) And there's more! And more and more! Each section is jam-packed with graphics. The result is not just a handy reference guide, but also a beautiful book.
