Bibliography 1959-1970 (again heavily illustrated with detailed cataloguing of printed material about Fluxus and related actions, artists, exhibitions, performances, as well as a detailed listing for each featured artist of their publications, writings, art editions, etc). Book includes works by Wolf Vostell, Daniel Spoerri, Nam June Paik, Tetsumi Kudo, Tadeusz Kantor, Dick Higgins, George Brecht, Allan Kaprow, Yoko Ono, Claes Oldenburg, Alison Knowles, Robert Filliou, Stanley Brouwn, Bazon Brock, Joseph Beuys, Eric Anderson, Viennese Actionists, Charlotte Moorman, Günter Brus, Emmett Williams, Ben Vautier, Carolee Schneemann, Otto Muehl, Robert Watts, Al Hansen, Henry Flynt, Philip Corner, Henning Christiansen, Robert Rauschenberg, John Cage, and many more.

Forbidden Love: art in the wake of television


“Forbidden Love: art in the wake of television” observes television’s methods of seduction, with its “garish mannerisms” and describes it as a world of experience with the most varied of formats. The catalogue does not aim to analyse the content or morals of television, rather it is interested in an aesthetic, “camp” approach-as described in Susan Sontag’s essay Notes on “Camp”-to the medium of television and its affects.

Julius Koller
Univerzalne Futurologicke Operacie

This book is the first retrospective of Julius Koller, born in 1939 in Piestany (former Czech Republic), working in Bratislava. Since his beginnings in the middle of the 60s, the Slovak artist Julius Koller has understood his work as a “cultural process”. His influence on the younger artist generation as “artist for artists” is not to be underestimated.
