A selection of essays by the artist, poet, writer, happening-maker, cinematographer, art and literary critic.
Öyvind Fahlström (1928-1976) was an artist, poet, writer, happening-maker, cinematographer, art and literary critic. His search for a total art explains his interest in hybrid forms and perhaps also the frequently fragmented aspect of his own art work.
This selection of essays is particularly varied in style: theater, reviews, journalism, socio-politico essays, comments on his own work...) and revealing of Fahlström's preoccupations.
As Ponthus Hulten once commented, "I've never known another artist like him, capable of painting and watching television at the same time."
