“The Eros Effect” is a term coined by philosopher George Katsiaficas in his book The Immagination o the New Left: A Global Analysis of 1968, which describes “a means of rescuing the revolutionary value of spontaneity, a way to stimulate a reevaluation of the unconscious and strengthen the will of popular movements to remain steadfast in their revulsion with war, inequality, and domination.” On the fiftieth anniversary of that momentous year, the artists in this exhibition continue to address many of the same political and social issues that their predecessors did in ’68.
