Sample text

But that’s not true with the generation who arose in the 1960s. Today’s youth and also more mature trendsetters (critics, scholars, teachers) are fascinated by these survivors from the 1960s. People see the work they make now and know about the work they made forty or even fifty years ago. So why are the artists of the 1960s still respected? Why are they still active?

Dogs and police with fire-hoses in the streets of Birmingham; soldiers sloughing through jungles, napalm decimating villages. Hopes and atrocities, possibilities and betrayals, all jumbled together.
