Evocative Photos Show Teenagers And Their Bedrooms In The 60s-80s

The revolution started here.

The artist Eduardo Paolozzi once described the artist’s studio as a laboratory where experiments are carried out and where chemicals react with each other to produce strange and unsteady alliances.

Similarly, a teenager’s bedroom is usually where an artist’s revolution would begin as it’s the only place in their parent’s house that they’re allowed to decorate how they want and that they will invariably spend most of their time in. Usually this involves learning how to masturbate and listening to music that their parents don’t understand (often after slamming the door). The walls are covered in posters of whatever hip subgenre of life they’re currently into, whilst the books and magazines strewn across the floor demonstrate a desperate search for identity and substance.

We can all relate because it’s happened to every single one of us. Take a look at some of these snaps of teenagers’ bedrooms from the 1960s-1980s and cast your mind back to your teenage bedroom:
