Anna McCarthy
How to Start A Revolution – The Musical


Textheft 24 Seiten + 20 Seiten farbiges Beiheft, klammergeheftet
21 × 29.7 cm

A guide, but no answer to the question “How to start a revolution”. The publication is a textbook for the four acts musical of the same name and the ongoing artistic project of Anna McCarthy.

The musical deals with the romanticization and synaesthetic manipulative tactics of the depiction of revolution, rebellion and recent history of the same group of bored rebels. Facts are mixed with fiction, layers are laid over layers to create scenes that direct the viewer’s perception to what was and is really real.

The project “How To Start A Revolution” has so far manifested itself in the form of arrests, archives, films, photos and songs. But now it’s time for the ultimate big romantic gesture: a MUSICAL – singing, dancing, screaming and laughing all to the question: “What time is it?” This is a prophecy; this is a poetic pop spectacle.

The first 50 editions of the book are available as special editions. They include 4 prints, a pencil, a CD and are signed by the artist.
