A Time Capsule from the Sixties: The Little Magazine ta'BOX (1969-1970)

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


    The Danish assembling magazine ta’ BOX can be seen as a continuation of the Danish magazine ta’ (1967–1968). It consisted of transparent plastic bags, which constituted an open-ended and un-edited frame for the widely heterogeneous content. In many ways ta’ BOX responded to the ongoing transformation of the aesthetic field and the youth movement and student revolt of 1968, by trying to break down the barriers between the elevated and rarefied fine arts, on the one hand, and ordinary, everyday life on the other. In principle, the editorial structure allowed everybody to participate. However, the contributors were almost exclusively from Danish avant-garde circles or those active within the youth and student revolt movements.
