QUESTION: Anti-Mass Theory

question / pregunta: 

I am seeking assistance regarding theoretical works that address the problems of mass-action. For me this means the following: In what ways are radicals limited by an unquestioned adherance to a massified model of change. I am thinking about how foucault has destabilized old notions of a top-down power model in favor of a relational model that does not presuppose a group "in/with power" and a group "out/without power" rather that power is everywhere and is constituted through discourse and action of various individuals and groups.

I am interested in philosophical works, as well as works of political science, sociology, critical theory. Websites, zines, articles, and books etc... would be apprecaited.

QUESTION: finding a 1970s image of Yvonne Wanrow

question / pregunta: 

How would I find this image of Yvonne Wanrow? I read this snippet in a 1978 article in "off our backs":

"I recently walked into A Woman's Place bookstore in Oakland, Ca. and spotted a poster of Yvonne Wanrow. In that poster she is, for me, that fierce and caring woman, wielding in one hand a gun, and holding in the other, a child. Behind Yvonne there are the flowing rays of a bloody sun, a sun transformed by woman's creative power."

Are there databases or places that specialize in feminist/political posters and images from the late 1970s? Do you have any other suggestions on how to find this image?
