Lauren Graber and Daniel Spaulding’s joint contribution, ‘The Red Flag: the art and politics of West German Maoism’, maps artistic Maoism in West Germany from the late 1960s to the early 1970s, tying it to both the student movement and the extra-parliamentary opposition. Looking at a broad sample of artists, the authors demonstrate how the image of Mao and the politics for which it stood became contested terrain where the complex dialectic of Pop art and revolution was played out in perhaps its most spectacular form.
