Ever since Populism emerged in the late 19th century as a rural people’s movement confronting industrialization and economic exploitation, it has raised a host of issues for artists. The Reader accompanies an exhibition in four European cities exploring the relationships between contemporary art and populist cultural and political trends. The anthology of essays goes beyond academic posturing, including work by activists, journalists, art critics, philosophers and political scientists. The Catalog documents the four exhibitions, and includes short stories by Matias Faldbakken, Liam Gillick and other authors. Both are designed by M/M (Paris).
