In this study, author Gerald Raunig presents prolific material for the analysis of the diverse relations of exchange between art and activism based on a poststructuralist revolution theory. Gustave Courbet's engagement in the Paris Commune, German activism of the 1910s, post-revolutionary Soviet art around Eisenstein and Tretjakov, the Situationist Internationale in Paris in May '68, the confrontation of Viennese Actionism and the students movement in the action "art and revolution", and finally the genealogy of the PublixTheatreCaravan from an anarchist theatre collective of the 90s to a transversal interlinking of anti-globalisation and the European noborder network: These exemplary investigations open up an alternative art history of the "long" 20th century.

The German version, KUNST UND REVOLUTION. Künstlerischer Aktivismus im langen 20. Jahrhundert has been published as volume 4 of the bookseries republicart.
