Rêvenance: A Zine of Hauntings from Underground Histories. Issue 6
ed. Olchar E. Lindsann
Revenance 6 cover for online

This special issue of Rêvenance contains a single, meticulously researched, 40-page experimental essay by the journal’s editor Olchar Lindsann, “Theatres of War in the Assault on Culture: A Simultaneous History of Theatrical Riots and the Avant-Garde, 1830-1970”. Written in response to Kolomiets’s essay “Who Governs the History of Art?” from the premier issue, this study investigates the strategies, tactics, and results of nine organized interventions by and/or against avant-garde collectives over a century and a half – presented all at once, as if describing one single multi-dimensional event. This experimental compositional technique reveals surprising and instructive similarities and differences in avant-garde community and strategy over the years, and emphasizes the continuity and inter-generational solidarity of this counterculture.
