In the twentieth century, democratic societies turned to dissenting and unpopular artists such as Jackson Pollock, Bertolt Brecht, D.H.

Author Caroline Levine shows how artists in the tradition of the avant-garde may once again prove to be effective catalysts for contemporary change." "Moving beyond debates over obscenity, public funding and censorship, Provoking Democracy gets at art's value and purpose in democratic societies, concluding that the freest and fairest democracies need the provocations of art, just as the most rebellious artists need the protection of the democratic state."--Jacket." ;
