Product description


"Johanna Isaacson s book is a vital testament to the fragile utopias that inhabit our precarious present. Exploring the 'expressive negations' of punk through the 80s and 90s, Isaacson beautifully reconstructs the prehistory of current revolts in these attempts to rupture the banality of capitalist life. The Ballerina and the Bull is a salutary call to refuse calls to 'maturity' and 'realism, ' which sanction things as they are, and instead to return to those supposedly 'childish' refusals, which are our real utopias." --Benjamin Noys, author of Malign Velocities"

Her work on politics and aesthetics in contemporary literature, DIY culture, social movements, and cinema has appeared in Criticism, Liminalities, Counterpunch, Reconstruction, Viewpoint, Lana Turner, Cesura//Acceso, and Blind Field.
