The Long 1980s

The Long 1980s considers the significance of the 1980s for culture and society today. It revisits this pivotal decade via a collection of microhistories from across Europe that span the fields of art, culture, and politics. Central to the stories in this book is the changing relationship between ideologies, governments, and their publics, the effects of which have come to shape the contemporary condition of Europe and beyond. Artists, writers, and activists were responding to and articulating these changes in myriad ways: in the streets, through words, images, objects, and actions. At the same time, new subjectivities were emerging at the intersection of race, class, gender, and sexuality, all voices that were demanding to be heard.

Comprising newly commissioned essays by leading thinkers alongside seventy case studies, including images and archival material published for the first time, this reader offers an invaluable and alternative reading of the recent past, and assesses the decade of the 1980s as a turning point in political action: identity politics, political shifts between east and west, start of neoliberalism.

This publication, which is part of the programme ‘The Uses of Art: The Legacy of 1848 and 1989’, extends the discussions that begun during eleven exhibitions, two conferences, two publications and one MA seminar. It draws on the accumulated knowledge and speculations of the many artists, curators, writers, and institutions involved.
