France as a country doesn't like itself, yet invariably sees itself as being at the centre of a self-reflexive, self-celebrating cultural model. In post-May 1968 France, the social, sexual and aesthetic freedoms imagined in the 1960s took militant form, while politically the country remained set in a quasi status quo. The situation made itself felt in different forms of counterculture, with popular culture such as film, rock music, comics, television and graffiti influencing as never before the more traditional cultural productions of literature, philosophy and the visual arts. A nebula of subversive practices came into being, aided and abetted by a developing media, and marked by a blend of idealism and nihilism, caustic humour and eroticism, darkness and hedonism, all a part of this countercultural "French spirit". In the shadows of Guy Debord's "society of the spectacle", and the crisis that monopolised political thinking from Giscard to Mitterrand, a spirit of revolt lived on regardless of disillusionment and political exploitation.
