Since the 1970s, the medium of video and multimedia art practice has been closely linked to the subcultural and countercultural movements. Art and music videos in particular demonstrate great subversive potential: artists and musicians oppose traditional values, exploring and repeatedly transgressing social norms and gender stereotypes. This publication reviews artistic strategies in the context of a history of punk and its offshoots, combining scholarly opinions from the fields of art history, queer theory, media studies, gender studies, postcolonial studies, and cultural studies on an equal footing with field reports from the practice of alternative archives and artistic image essays.
