Abstract (English)

The editors argue for a political understanding of art directed towards progessive social change. Political cultural work is seen as a process of redefining one's reality and of naming sources of oppression. The essays describe work in performance, theatre, installation, music and media. Biographical notes. Circa 140 bibl. ref.
