Abstract :
Discusses two exhibitions of materials produced to be political ephemera (posters, handouts, magazines) as evidence of the active engagement of artists with the public sphere at two different points in history: Building the collective : Soviet graphic design, 1917-1937 (Columbia University, Miriam and Ira Wallach Art Gallery) and Counterculture alternative information from the underground press to the internet (Exit Art/The New World, New York City). Building the collective, curated by Leah Dickerman, chronicles 20 years and four major periods in which political ephemera played a significant role in Soviet politics and public policy. Alternative information from the underground press to the internet, curated by critic Brian Wallis with the assistance of curator Melissa Rachleff, presents the history of alternative publishing over the last three and one-half decades. Asserts that exhibiting the political past may be enough to destroy its radicality. ;
