"This beautiful video is a portrait of the life and work of Cuban-born American artist Ana Mendieta. Mendieta used her own body, the raw materials of nature, and Afro-Cuban religion to express her feminist political consciousness and poetic vision. Interview footage with Mendieta and her own filmed records of her earthworks and performances are incorporated to render a vivid testament to her energy and extraordinary talent after her tragic, untimely death in 1985"--Publisher's website.

Culture is useless, children are dead, they (the actors) are already lonely adults, adults are ex- children who can't remember their childhood. They behave like obsessed robots. They are obsessed by memories of questions with automatic replies. Everyone is pursuing one's own impulses. Tyranny and nihilism. They can't see any world beyond their impulses and authority rules over them totally unseen. Autorithy is Kantor himself. Actors think they are free, but they are just destructive.

Sound recording
4 sound discs (240 min.) : digital ; 4 3/4 in. + booklet ([12] p. ; 12 cm.)
  • disc 1. All that fall (1957)
  • disc. 2. From an abandoned work (1957) ; Embers (1959)
  • disc 3. The old tune (1960) ; Words and music (1962)

Samuel Beckett was one of the most original and influential writers and dramatists of the twentieth century, and a writer with an exceptional concern for the subtleties of sound and rhythm. Yet the works created by Beckett for radio broadcast by the BBC are relatively unknown to the general public. This is in part because they have not been easily accessible. Re-broadcasts aside, the original BBC recordings could be heard only at the British Library Sound Archive in London. Now, in the centenary year of the writer's birth, these historic broadcasts are made commercially available for the first time. This four-CD set spans the period 1957-1976 and collects the five works created by Beckett expressly for the broadcast medium: "All That Fall", "Embers", "Words and Music", "Cascando" and "Rough for Radio", plus the rarely heard curio, "The Old Tune" (Beckett's translation of Robert Pinget's "La Manivelle"), and the monologue, "From an Abandoned Work", which, at the time of its transmission, was unpublished in Britain.

Happenings' is the term coined by 1960s avantgarde artists for their own unique type of performance event. Together, they formed one of the most influential experimental movements of the century; yet also one of the least-well understood. Bringing together radical visual innovation with live performance, Happenings galvanised both fine artists and performers. Articles, statements, interviews and essays by and about some of the most influential avantgardists of the era are presented here for the first time since their original publication. They include: Allan Kaprow John Cage Yvonne Rainer Claes Oldenburg Ann Halprin George Maciunas Happenings and Other Acts is a unique and important collection of original material, and concludes with a substantial, specially commissioned essay by Gunter Berghaus on European Happenings.
