“With Coen Tasman’s Clearly Kabouter: Chronicle of the Dutch Counterculture, Autonomedia adds yet another valuable publication to its series on the history of Holland’s radical ‘mythical’ era (between 1965 and 1974). From the Provo Movement and the artists and freethinkers who launched the Assault on the Impossible, we turn here to the countercultural Kabouter Movement. Coen Tasman offers us an authentic account of the collective effort to create a greener car-free city center, shops with pesticide-free food, resistance to the developer-generated housing shortage, and many other innovative ideas that came to public attention in exuberantly playful ways, both within and outside the City Council. The Kabouter Movement’s legacy remains highly relevant today.”

— Annemarie de Wildt, curator, The Amsterdam Museum
