Poèmes, Chants, Dessins [Poems, Songs, Drawings].
Paris: Front Culturel, 1970. Octavo. (33)pp. Illustrated throughout with images, sometimes caricatured, of greedy capitalists, corrupt judges, and militarized police. Juxtaposed with these are depictions of the revolutionaries and protestors of a variety of ethnicities raising strong fists and fighting back. The mission of the Front Culturel was to co-opt the literary and artistic power of the intelligentsia for their own devices, to give shape and life to the revolutions of the region, which began among French students and workers in 1968. This publication, featuring poems, artwork, and songs, demands justice and reform through artistic expression, positioning the creative voice on equal level with the political, scientific, and philosophical voices of the time. Staple-bound in red wrappers with an illustration of fists breaking manacles on the front cover. Some edgewear, else crisp and near fine. Item #30193
