Every TV Needs a Revolution.

Every TV Needs a Revolution. By Dara Birnbaum. Imschoot, 1993. 112 pp., illustrated throughout, 14,8x21 cm. Edition of 1000 copies.

To those people who originated these anonymous street posters, May '68 Paris. [dedication page]

Book description:

"Using video editing techniques, Dara Birnbaum activates static images of anonymous street posters and graffiti from the student uprisings of May '68 and puts their strong graphic elements in the service of her own contemporary cultural critique.

The electronically cropped, rotated and inverted images are re-dedicated to the printed page as commentary on the public space of television and mass media."
