Re: <nettime> "Critical strategies in art and media" gets it wrong


Martha, 

I perhaps incorrectly left out feminism because it seemed to me it flowered after '68, more than before. But that might have been more especially in the organized "movement."( The first noted feminist march was in '70. The Stonewall riots were in '69. So both followed '68, with the happenings on many college campuses ,notably Columbia,  as well as in France, Prague and Chicago.) Of course, "The 2nd Sex" came out well before. I did mention some books, but you are right about  the others. Brecht was quite visible in the very early '60's. But how books are read, or even what drugs end up doing, depends on other factors, I believe. In the context of the times, Tolkien and the movie 2001 might have been as influential or more than anything you name, but 
Tolkien probably had a conservative intent. Reductiveness is in the eye of the beholder, it seems.  

Best,
Michael
