Everyday High and Low – Finnish Avant-Garde Poetry of the 1960s: Navigations in a Rapidly Changing Society

Abstract : Finnish avant-garde poetry of the 1960s attached importance to national and global political and social questions, as well as to pop and youth culture and the emerging consumer society. It sought to connect texts with the contexts of social discourses, politics and everyday life with devices such as catalogues, montage and anonymous quotations, thus seeking to undo the discourses of hermeticism and of the autonomy of art that were characteristic of the modernists of the 1950s.
