The chapter ‘Vanguardia’ explores the growing body of literature on social practice art. Through reviews of books by Gerald Raunig, BAVO, Gregory Sholette, Oliver Ressler, Grant Kester, Critical Art Ensemble, Nato Thompson, Yates McKee, Mikkel Bolt Rasmussen and Rebecca Gordon-Nesbitt, the chapter examines how various strands of contemporary leftist culture put into practice forms of radical culture that at the same time address the totality of the global capitalism. Alternative tactics and strategies, such as reformism, dialogue, education, protest and revolution, account for different perspectives on the left and different possibilities for the avant garde today.
