Merz to Emigré and Beyond

sold out




Merz to Emigré and Beyond is a historical survey of avant-garde cultural and political magazines and newspapers all the way from the early twentieth century to the present day. The book features a unique selection of international publications from Europe and the USA including Merz (1920s), View (1940s), East Village Other (1960s), Punk (1970s), Raw (1980s) and Emigré (1990s). The design of these magazines, often raucous and undisciplined, was as ground breaking as the ideas they disseminated. Many were linked to controversial artistic, literary and political movements, such as Dada, Surrealism, Modernism, the New Left and Deconstruction.
