This week’s video: Gutai

Via ubuweb, some low-resolution, soundless, fascinating documentation of the Gutai performance art movement in Japan. See you in September!

“Gutai art does not alter matter; it gives matter life … In Gutai art, the human spirit and matter, opposed as they are, shake hands … My respect goes out to the works of Pollock and Mathieu. Their works are the cries uttered by matter: by oil paint and enamel themselves.” (Yoshihara, Gutai manifesto, 1956)
