Danish Counterculture and Protest

Røde Mor. No. 1 (21 June 1970) through No. 6 (September 1975) (all published).

A complete run in 6 unpaginated issues of the journal put out by the eponymous socialist Danish artist's and musician's collective, forming a sort of catalogue of the group's activities through comics, photos of happenings and concerts, reproductions of posters, songs, and other works. 8vo. Original saddle-stapled cardstock wrpps., each printed with the Røde Mor illustrated logo. Copenhagen, 1970-1975.

Røde Mor was founded in 1969 by Troels Trier, Ole Finding, John Ravn, Yukari Ochiaia, and Dea Trier Mørch, and was active until 1978 before experience a resurrection in 2002. From the brief manifesto printed on the inside front cover of each issue: "The purpose of Røde Mor is to create political, proletarian art. Røde Mor works with collective art in the form of posters, graphics, painting, music, song, poetry, photo, film, sound." The majority of the group's output was protest songs, comics, and posters for rock concerts. Very scarce; as of May 2019, WorldCat locates only a single holding in the United States.
