“Anarchy in the U.K.” Fanzine featuring photographs by Ray Stevenson and graphics by Jamie Reid. Published by Malcolm McLaren, December 1976.

Anarchy in the Archives walks the viewer through the history of punk culture, from its aesthetic and political origins in the Situationists through its musical meanings and ongoing revisions in the 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s. This exhibition draws on material from Cornell Library’s Punk Collections, part of the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections. The Punk Collections contain hundreds of fliers and posters, more than 1,500 fanzines, along with sound recordings, clothing, photographs, and original art documenting Punk’s regional interpretations and influences both nationally and internationally.

The exhibition is on view through May 19, 2017, in the Hirshland Exhibition Gallery located in The Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections.
