The DIY Movement in Art, Music and Publishing: Subjugated Knowledges - Routledge Research in Cultural and Media Studies (Paperback)Sarah Lowndes (author)
- We can order this
This book considers the history of Do It Yourself art, music and publishing, demonstrating how DIY strategies have transitioned from being marginal, to emergent, to embedded. Through secondary research, observation and original interviews, each chapter details the peak period of a city's subcultural activity and assesses the contemporary situation since the post-subcultural period circa 1995 in order to address the impact of globalized culture in the wake of digital and internet technologies. The book aims to challenge existing histories of sub-cultures by looking at less well-known scenes and movements as well as explore DIY "best practices" to trace a template of best approaches for sustainable, independent, locally owned creative enterprises.

"The author brings together a remarkably diverse set of creative ventures, such as bands, record labels and live-music venues, exhibition spaces, art galleries and bookstores, as well as magazines and publishing imprints, among others, while demonstrating how these pursuits reflect but also, crucially, affect the social and cultural environments within which they occur." -- Mari Valdur, University of Helsinki, European Association of Social Anthropologists
