The Populism Reader

 - The Populism Reader
The Populism Reader accompanies Populism, an exhibition project in four European cities (Vilnius, Oslo, Amsterdam, Frankfurt am Main) exploring the relationships between contemporary art and current populist cultural and political trends. Conceived as an anthology, the publication comprises essays covering various aspects and approaches to the populist experience. The book is designed by M/M (Paris) and illustrated by Atelier Van Lieshout; contributions stem from amongst others activists, journalists, art critics, philosophers and political scientists.

The Populism Reader goes beyond academic styles in order to respond to historical and current aspects of the populist experience, as they surface in relation to art, activism, the role of the intellectual, political desires, religion and other issues.
