Provo was an Amsterdam anarchist movement that existed for just two years (1965-1967), but its impact resonated for years to come in the Netherlands and abroad. Through nonviolent resistance and political proposals, the movement captured the imagination of a generation, and reshaped the Dutch political and cultural landscape. Part art movement and part political party, Provo was a loose collective of individuals with various ambitions: subversive agendas, artistic motives, utopian ideas and concrete plans. Between 1965 and 1967, these motives and agendas briefly overlapped, and created a unique movement.
