This brief text is the editorial to the JOMEC Journal special issue on Expressive Culture and Populist Radical Right Parties in Europe. It situates the special issue within the existing body of literature on the intersections between the radical right and expressive culture. The editorial further outlines the main contribution of the special issue: the focus on hitherto largely ignored countries, and the more consistent focus on parties and organised politics. This includes taking into account the populist dimensions of the radical rights relation to artists and genres. The editorial also reflects on what the contributions, taken together, teach us about the differences and tensions between nationalist vanguard strategies typical of radical right activist subcultures and the populist dimensions of radical right party politics.
