Andrew Blauvelt: A Hippie Modernism?
Psychedelic artists, radical architects, anti-designers, eco-communards, acid drag performers, and many other "freaks" came together in the 1960s to turn mainstream society on its head by creating new forms of art, architecture, and design. Deemed a failure during the neoconservatism of the 1970s and 1980s, their radical ideas and utopian struggles would, however, plant the seeds of today's progressive society and culture and influence a whole new generation of contemporary artists and designers.
