ABSTRACT
A review essay is presented on the essay "In the Beginning was the Image; before the Beginning was the Avant-Garde," by Peter Whitehead which was written as a preface for the book "La Cinéma Critique," edited by Nicole Brenez and Bidhan Jacobs. It mentions that Whitehead argues that the terrorist has rendered redundancy learning the techniques of art's artifice in the cultural context. He also notes the purpose of the avant-garde to nurture the acts of war and political conflict.
