The Misfits - 30 Years of Fluxus

Lars Movin, Denmark, 1993

79 min.DK/Documentary

A video portrait of a group of artists who since the early 1960s have completely disrupted our ideas of what art can be. A large part of the video was made in Venice in 1990, when many of the original Fluxus artists met to hold a large exhibition in connection with the Biennale - almost thirty years after the first highly untraditional Fluxus concerts that took place in various cities, including Wiesbaden and Copenhagen. The video itself is also untraditional as it takes advantage of the possibilities of manipulation provided by video technology. It includes interviews with most of the leading Fluxus artists, documentations of their work, and cuts from such other films and video programmes as have been made during the past thirty years in the interests of this ungovernable art form.
