||Tamiment Library Web Archive (Labor and the Left): Arts and Cultural Left
||The Left, in addition to having its own culture(s), including its own cultural institutions,
has expressed its views through the arts, both collectively, and individually. Views
of the political role of the arts range from the utilitarian (agtiprop, etc.) to the
transformative (Surrealism, etc.). This web archive contains websites of (principally)
U.S. entities involved in left artistic or cultural activity and criticism. The Arts
are understood to include all the individual arts: music, literature, motion pictures,
painting, sculpture, theater, etc. Websites relating to the use of mass media in connection
with the arts are also included, as are websites devoted to left satire and humor.
Left cultural activity involves efforts to radically critique transform culture, and
cultural attitudes, in part or as a whole. NOTE: For technical, privacy and other
reasons, archived websites may not be exact copies of the original website at the
time of the web crawl.
