In this pioneering work, the author brings together the patchworks of the women of Chile documenting the Chilean resistance, Sha'aba painting of the people of Central Africa, and the collective view of reality expressed in the public paintings of the Chinese peasant communes. This book is an attempt to rescue the concept of art held hostage in museums and in the homes of the rich and return to us our collective legacy.
