Subversive in non-explicit ways

quotesY“It is in this sense that many artists, at least in Hungary, have been considered subversive, not necessarily for the explicit political content of their work and their occasionally dissident political position, but for producing art that, in terms of a lifestyle and alternative mode of creative existence, proved to be critical of the principles of the Socialist canon.”

-Katalin Timar, Unmistakable Sentence
