FIVE FROM BARSKA STREET
Our Price $19.95
The complete, extraordinary "reperformance" by Ron Vawter of Jack Smith's 1981 performance piece,
What's Underground About Marshmallows
, in which Jack, strongly against the commodification of art and fearful that people were making illegal copies of his films, accuses Jonas Mekas, the champion of avant-garde film in the early '60s, of this diabolical infringement. In
, Jack tells a funny, pathetic tale "on" himself--a nightmare of failing to catch Mekas--called variously "Uncle Artcrust," "Uncle Fishhook" and sometimes "Old Uncle Oldie"--in the act of duplication.
