More details

Rave Art documents the explosion of the Rave scene in the late 80s and early 90s, through this superb collection of flyers, invitations and posters that were collected at the time by the author. Parties were advertised publicly and privately with these bright, artistic flyers and invitations, and the enormous underground culture of warehouse takeovers and loud, raucous light-shows in small sweaty clubs developed across the UK, much of it driven by exclusive invitation.

Written by Chelsea Berlin, who lived through the movement in its entirety and attended many of the now legendary events, from Club Shoom to Energy and Beyond. Together with personal reminiscences and quotes from infamous and not-so-famous attendees, Rave Art paints a picture of what is probably the last real, rebellious youth culture movement of modern times - a socio-cultural phenomenon that changed music, the law, drug culture, dance and more.
